The Silk Route 2014 is officially over! We made it to Istanbul after an amazing few days of riding, through beautiful forests, steep hills, and a little bit of rain. We biked along the shore of the Black Sea before cutting inland and riding down the Bosphorus strait into Istanbul.
Here is my actual GPS recorded ride (with a few blank spots where I was sick or tired and riding in the truck):
10,707.25 km in 98 days of riding
68,414 m total elevation gained / 7.73 Everests!
467 hours on the bike
