Re: Were going around the world!!!

Hi Tim & Fin,

I've just set off for a similar sounding ride, although going via Italy in Europe but may bump into you along the way. Will keep an eye on your blog.

Maybe see you on the road.
Paul

Re: People who have cycled the Pamir Highway...

Thank you so much Kieran! Nice to hear a really through recent account, will definitely come in useful as I'm looking at the same rout by the sounds of it.

Re: China to UK ride

Best of luck with the ride.

I might meet you coming the other way then, although my timeframe is still rather unknown. If the plan goes as expected (*cough + high hopes*) I will be leaving Istanbul in July ride to Bishkek and maybe on to China via Baku and the Pamirs. Will keep an eye out for you.
