Karachi to Kathmanadu
2014 and we’re back on the road, as our WorldbyBike caravan moves on from Karachi, Pakistan and we hope to finish the year in Chang Mai, Thailand. The first leg of 2014’s programme takes in Pakistan, Tibet, and Nepal. The biggest challenge will be altitude as we have many days riding up above 4,000 metres. This year we stick to the DR 650’s that we switched to last year riding in Siberia. We know they’re just the job for handling swollen waterways and recovering from drownings, let’s see how they handle serious altitude. We know the fuel injected Beemers handle that really well as we saw in the Andes. Highlights on this ride include a ride up to Everest Base Camp (Chinese side), the KKK highway of course, Kashgar, Lahsa and riding into Kathmandu again, something we last did in 2003. It promises to be a goodie.
