2019 Challenge - London to Mt Everest motorcycle

In April 2019, I start my London to Mount Everest Motorcycle Challenge. I will leave from the Ace Cafe on the morning of the 20th April (which is Tom’s birthday). I will go through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, across the Caspian Sea (by ferry!) to Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and China; arriving at Mount Everest base camp in Tibet in mid June 2019, some 60 days and over 10,000 miles after leaving London. Highlights will include; riding the Silk Road; the Karakum Desert; the Pamir Highway through the mountain regions of Tajikistan; the Wakhan Valley, bordering Afghanistan; the Khitai Davan Pass at 5,300m; The Himalayas and the spectacular road to Mount Everest Base Camp; and finally on to Lhasa, the Potala Palace and the Buddhist temples of Jokhang and Barkhor.
Pictures from the challenge will be shown below.
