In my inaugural article at Tour d’Afrique I make my introductions and share some tips, tactics and strategies for athletes riding in the Silk Route Expedition. Tee Silk route is broken into several sections but for those brave athletes that will be riding the whole 12,100 kilometer/3899 miles in 129 days through China, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. These riders will be riding through quaint towns, cross deserts and climb thousands of feet of mountain passes. So as you can imagine pacing strategies, tactics and some experienced tips will come in handy when you are trying to complete such an amazing cycling expedition.

Until next article have a great ride!
