On 5600m in the Kunlun in China. The night was cold and a blizzard struck. We could cycle some on the frozen ground, but at times the snow was too deep. Another problem was the small frozen rivers which were hard to see under the snow. Sometimes the ice held, sometimes we broke through. If we did, drive train, wheels etc froze solid very fast.
The photo shows Nadine hacking off ice from her bike.
More from the same ride.

Josh Lewis Sounds tought!

How far of a distance did you go on this trip? Also I have a question about this "Sometimes the ice held, sometimes we broke through." this sounds very dangerous... how deep was the water? Thanks for sharing! By the sounds of it, you could write a trip report about this. Thanks once again for sharing! Cheers Josh Lewis.

I think the total distance of that trip was about 5500km. Many stops for mountaineering.
The small rivers and streams which we couldn't detect very well because of the snow weren't deep. Maximum 40-50cm. The larger ones we saw clearly.
One day I may write a TR about it.

...this sort of stuff Corax. Lets have a trip report!!! I have read Nick Crane's "Atlas Biker" and up and down Kilimanjaro on an MTB. Real adventure stuff like you are doing. There definitely is a place for it at BikingPage.

Thanks.
When I have my slides here I may scan some of them and make a trip report about at least this leg of the journey.
