Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Kazakhstan on Thursday, 4th-October-2012. Almaty to Arkharly pass. 98 miles. I filled up with a nice breakfast before leaving the hotel this morning. And managed to find my way out of Almaty without any problems, and I was soon back on the bumpy roads. They haven’t improved this side of Almaty. They’re just as bad as the roads when I rode in.
Ended the day with a fairly big climb, which is where I camped tonight.
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the World of this cruel disease.
You can also follow my progress and see where I stop each night by visiting the Where’s Garry web page; there, you’ll find a map of the route I’ve taken so far.
