England to Asia 2020

We are two (or possibly up to four) bikepackers planning on peddling our way as far east as we can get from the east of England beginning around June time once I have finished my degree. The route is not set in stone though we have ideas about following a stretch of the Danube, possibly from the source, on our approach to Turkey where we expect to arrive possibly after 3 to 4 months.

From Turkey we are currently researching a route that would avoid warzones and restricted countries for British citizens (such as Iran - though it would have been amazing to visit). A ferry from Azerbaijan to Kazakhstan is our likely route and then on to the rest of the 'stans. We have not yet figured out getting from central Asia to south-east Asia over land and this may depend on the climate at the time. If at all possible, we may be inclined to attempt to continue east such that we end up back where we started.

I am writing this as an open invitation to peddling travelers to join us for parts of this journey and also I would value input from those that may have experience to share for such a journey.

We are experienced wild campers (strict LNT) and my travelling companion is a bicycle mechanic by trade.

I agree

Hi Majidi,

I have heard this and I would love to visit! However, due to the current political climate it is difficult for British, North American and Canadian citizens to travel there without restrictions and requiring a hired guide.

I hope that this situation comes to a peaceful solution and sanctions are lifted. My dissertation supervisor is Iranian and he is the wisest person I have met.

Best regards,
