As you read this, I'm embarking the Silk Road Mountain Race.
It is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycling race through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan of about ~1700 kilometers with 26,000m of climbing.
Watch my dot as I tackle this 2 week race: here.
As I'll be off the grid & in the mountains, the next issues of the newsletter will be curated by the Twotone team : )
As always thank you for reading,
Enjoy these issues?
