23 August – 03 September 2023


Mongolia, cradle of great civilisations. A country of contrasts. A land of adventure.

Come with us to discover one of the most incredible and challenging countries for the western traveller.

After more than a decade of organising the Mongolia Bike Challenge and having travelled so many times, we feel confident that we can offer you the best of the best of this country we love so much.

We will have a support vehicle (one of the legendary Russian vans) that will follow us with the necessary luggage and supplies. We will sleep every night in Ger Camps equipped with all the necessary comforts to ensure a good rest, except for one night, when we will camp by the lake under the stars.

For the success of this expedition and the safety of all participance the creation of a strong team is absolutely imperative. No one will be left behind or in difficulty for any reason. It will be the responsibility of not only the guides, but also of each team member (participants) to help solve any and all kinds of problems that arise during the trip.

It will not only be an unforgettable journey, but also a unique opportunity to experience self-education in group consciousness, to share joy in fatigue, planning, organization, coordination, in defeats as well as in successes.

Success will not only be the arrival at our destination, but through our journey. And knowing we have done our best to arrive, together.

Stage 01 — 122 km | 1620 m

The adventure begins in a big way with an epic first stage in which we will cover 122 kilometres and 1620 metres of accumulated altitude gain. We set off from Ulaanbaatar, cycling through the streets of the capital. The large avenues give way to narrower streets until, finally, we take one of the connecting roads that will take us further and further away from the city. At kilometre 35, we leave the asphalt – which we will hardly set foot on again for a week of adventures – and enter the overwhelming Mongolian wilderness via a series of dirt tracks. Over the next 30 kilometres we will cross several high passes as we feel the vastness of the country embrace us.

Tonight we will sleep in our first Ger Camp under an incredible blanket of stars.


Stage 02 — 101 km | 910 m

In the second stage of the trip we are already completely immersed in the Mongolian steppes. Today we cycle up and down continuously, gaining altitude until, at kilometre 58, we reach an altitude of 1,500 metres and begin a beautiful descent of almost 30 kilometres until we cross the Tynn River and reach our destination for the day: the second Ger Camp, which awaits us with all the comforts to help us regain our strength.

Stage 03 — 137 km | 1320 m

Today we face the longest and perhaps the wildest stage of the trip, 137 kilometres and 1320 metres of elevation gain separate us from our third Ger Camp. We will cycle up valleys until we reach an altitude of more than 1,500 metres.

The sensation of immensity that Mongolia gives us today is intensified by the distance and the mixture of landscapes that each small peak we conquer and each valley we cross gives us.

The last 25 kilometres are the most bearable, as they run alongside the huge riverbed in a slight descent to the Ger Camp, where we will have to tread on some loose sand.

Stage 04 — 75,2 km | 740 m

This stage serves as a break between two demanding days of the journey. Today we will leave our luggage at the Ger Camp and cycle 75 kilometres on a circular route that will take us to the highest point of the route so far: 1700 metres. The tough climb will reward us with breathtaking views, show us the changes in landscape that occur at this altitude compared to the valleys and leave us ready for the descent back to our comfortable Ger Camp.

Stage 05 — 104 km | 950 m

Today’s stage runs almost entirely on a gentle ascent with 950 metres of elevation gain in just over 100 kilometres.

We will start the day crossing the sands of the small Gobi, where we will most likely have to push our bikes for a stretch.

Today we pass through Burd and Nessuelas, two small villages that, after four days with practically no contact with civilisation, will attract our attention.

We will camp by Sangiin Dalai Lake, where we will sleep under the stars in our tents.

Stage 06 — 126 km | 1380 m

In our penultimate stage, we leave the lake behind us, cross a road and head, jumping and climbing valleys, to meet the Opxoh riverbed. On its banks awaits us the spectacular Ger Camp, which will give us shelter and help us to recharge our batteries to face the last stage of this spectacular adventure.

Stage 07 — 83,8 km | 1200 m

Last stage of the journey. Today we will cover the 84 kilometres that separate us from Kharkhorin. It is an epic journey that takes us up rivers and valleys to a wooded peak from where we can see our goal, the ancient capital of Mongolia and once the centre of the known world.
