Still Sunday, and for those of you who enjoy sports vicariously, here’s the latest update from Sarah Outen in Kazakhstan as she completes a 200 km ride on the worst roads she has yet come to.
In her own words she says “Kazakhstan has roundly won the Golden Pothole award and presented Hercules and I the most challenging riding of the trip so far. We’ve had roads that aren’t really roads, pot holes large enough to build swimming pools in, stretches of mud where I’ve had to carry and walk Hercules for kilometres at a time, melting tarmac which sticks to his tyres, deserts and hundreds of kilometres of ripped up roads where the new China-Europe motorway is being built.
I made this video over a week ago after a big day’s riding – only to hit the craziest of road surfaces the next day, from when the pace slowed and things got really challenging. Needless to say, it has been a lot of fun and I have seen some wonderful sights and met some brilliant people.”
Onwards, ever onwards…
