Uzbekistan has a tumultuous history, beginning with the Iranian nomads who set up transit towns for the future Silk Road, onto the conquest of Genghis Khan and the Soviet Russian era of control. You’ll have a chance to experience the mark left by the Soviets in modern Tashkent before touring on to the 2000-year-old city of Samarkand with its gigantic Mosques. Cycle to the desert oasis of Bukhara that was recorded by the Chinese in 111 BC as being a large developed city before going on to be a state of Samanids in the 9th century and a powerful emirate in the 16th. Uzbekistan is your gateway to much of significant Asian history.
Pedal away from the city of Tashkent to the wide open barren landscape around the Pistalitau Ridge into the shadows of the Ortacheku Rocks. Grip your handlebars as you tackle the Nuratau Ridge surrounded by dramatic scenery, then make your way on two wheels from the other-worldly gorge of Sob through a pass with views that stretch as far as the deep blue Aydarkul Lake to the peaceful shores of the Fazilman Lake. Your epic cycling expedition through Uzbekistan will reveal everything from the bare wilderness, desert, and thick forests to beautiful lakes and rivers and imposing mountains and is sure to delight the nature-loving cyclist.
If you’re searching for a rugged cycling adventure, make your way to Uzbekistan. Ride main roads with little traffic through the dramatic steppe, climb achievable mountain terrain on high passes with gorgeous views, and pedal quiet lanes through small villages. Connect further with the great outdoors as you park your bike to camp for the night, or eat lunch in a rural village before spending the night in a homestay. Visit ancient, historically significant cities and small rural hamlets, try your hand at cooking Uzbeki Pilaf, and spend the night in a yurt. Adventure awaits around every corner in this adventurous bike journey through the captivating destination of Uzbekistan.

Amazing! I love the terrains we rode on. The mountainous regions were fantastic. The accommodation was fantastic. We had three nights of camping where our tents were set up for us. The on-road crew had some impressive culinary skills. We were well fed and well hydrated. The hotels we were placed in on other nights were also comfortable and clean. Blair, our guide, was excellent! He was receptive to our needs and made sure we were always comfortable and enjoying ourselves.
