“This…is…simply…breathtaking”, Matt gasped as he looked at the snow capped Kyrgyz mountains that surrounded us. Harriet was slumped over her handlebars and breathing heavily; she didn’t respond. For the first time in our trip we were cycling at over 2,500 metres. High-altitude thins the air and can cause extreme exhaustion and confusion. Matt reasoned that Harriet must be experiencing both because his well-timed double entendre didn’t get the response he thought it deserved.
Incredible effort, Harriet, and incredible Pics. That descent must have been loads of fun after the climb! Keep up the great work, X
Loving your posts, and your tenacity x
Well done the two of you - both the lung-busting climb and the white-knuckle descent. That hairpin road looks awesome! Fingers crossed for the Indian visa.
