The Route -- From Shanghai to Korgas

We will be biking from Shanghai to Korgaz, approximately 5,000 kilometers, starting July 3, 2005 and ending on August 28 (46 biking days and 8 volunteer days). Our path roughly follows the eastern portion of the ancient Silk Road, which today is marked by Highway 312. The route is spilt into eight stages two of which are two day journeys meant for causal bikers who are interested in joining the team (Nanjing to Hefei and Turpan to Urumqi). See the following table for more details about the route.

PLEASE NOTE: The schedule is subject to change at any point. Please check the web site, e-mail, or call us for our exact location and updated timing.

This Route was inspired by NPR correspondent Rob Gifford's On the Road in China Trip -- click here to listen to his journey.
