Country of the endless mountains, Kyrgyzstan, with its wild nature, is a great destination for outdoor sports. Horseback riding, trekking, rafting, kayaking, paragliding… You can do just about anything you love in Kyrgyzstan! And of course it’s a great place for mountain biking, which is an unusual and ecological way to visit the country while working out.
Sportsmen from around the world come to Kyrgyzstan to visit the country by bicycle or train. There are even international bicycle races around the Issyk Kul Lake.
In Kyrgyzstan, you’ll be able to take a bicycle for a one-day trip, go downhill riding or travel around the country on your bike, depending on your shape and interests! In one day, you can visit the valleys around the city where you’re staying then go back to your guesthouse for a comfortable night. If you have a car riding along with you, enjoy your trip for amazing downhill rides.
Some adventure travelers prefer to bike around the whole country. It’s an extraordinary and unforgettable way to visit Kyrgyzstan, and many locals will want to meet you because they will be very curious. So it’s a great physical and human adventure. But be warned – it’s also very tiring! The roads in Kyrgyzstan are not in the best shape, and there are many steep climbs at 3000 or even 4000m altitude! So you will have to train well before undertaking this adventure.
In any case, it’s always better to have a car ride along with you – in case you get injured, sick, tired, if it rains hard or if your bike breaks…
