Hello, The other night I met up with the people I'd hoped to be doing the Himalaya tour with. Unfortunatly Tibet is a little too dangerous at the moment so as it stands we won't be going there. So now we're trying to come up with an alternative. The plan is for something fairly exotic more than just great technical riding. Suggestions included: Romania, Kruger, Peru and Bolivia. Jordan and Syria were even suggested but I don't cope to well in the heat and have a real preference for big mountains. Any suggestions? I've ridden around the world a little bit, mainly Australia (it's where I live) but ridden Boulder CO, Mammoth Mtn CA, Moab UT, Kelowna BC, around the UK and a few short rides in Europe. There's more but that's all I can think of right now. Cheers, Duncan.
