Kyrgyzstan by bicyle: Wild weather and high passes

Kyrgyzstan by bicyle: Wild weather and high passes

An account of the first stage of a three part journey we, Rowena and Tim Barnes, did by bicycle in Central Asia in 1999. The journey took us from Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan, over the Torugart Pass to Kashgar in Xinjiang, then on down the Karakoram Highaway to Gilgit in Pakistan. This section covers our time in Kyrgyzstan, from Bishkek to the Torugart Pass.
