Tour de

MONGOLIA

the nomad way...

In summer 2012, this one-month adventure took us into the wilderness of Mongolia where we travelled on speed-pedelecs equipped with the center-motor from Bosch. While doing a lot of cross country riding on good, bad or no trails at all, outdoor expert Ondra Veltrusky and myself explored the mountains and treeless plateaus of central Mongolia. 

We rode from the country's geographical center to it's former capital city, Karakorum, where you can still see parts of the first Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. 

 

While we learned to slow down and let our pedelec-nomads' life flow at its own pace, we traveled in a completely self-sufficient way, fully relying on our second-generation solar trailers to recharge the batteries.
