    that’s fantastic. the Himalayas have a mythical property for me. I’d love to go back and what a way to do it.

      You’ve been Jules?

      I would love to go. Always have.

      This piece might even actually move me to do so.

        I’ve been to the Nepalese Himalayas, the Annapurna Range. quite different from the Indian Himalayas covered here. either way, they’re absolutely worth visiting. nothing like them. and surprisingly accessible – the Annapurnas were, anyway. but I believe the Ladakh region is pretty popular now. being at 5000+m is a unique feeling, there’s not much like it.

    This is – in all seriousness – one of the best pieces I have ever read / watched on CyclingTips.

    Smashing!

    And I can tell you, I’ve read some amazing stories / pieces / events on this brilliant site.

    To Wade & Co. – everyone who contributes to this website … you should be extremely proud of what you’ve achieved.

    Thank you.

      Well said Michele! I agree – this is definitely the best vid I’ve ever seen on CT. The word epic gets thrown around too much these days, but this is truly EPIC!
      (and the decision to leave the bikes at home and buy some over there blew my mind!)

        EPIC comment :-)

  • I regularly attend CT’s editorial meetings but I still get surprised by the quality of the content that this website publishes. Kudos to the North South boys for inviting us to share in their adventure.

    • Just because our meetings are so unprofessional?

      ;-)

    I’m going to head there ASAP and ride as many of the routes as I can and setup Strava segments on almost every single millimeter of road ridden, take countless selfies and post them using the hastag, “#wymtm”, “#wishyouwerehere”. Because nowadays it’s all about how many Strava KOMs and #wymtm’s…

    Two of cycling’s really good guys. Chapeau boys

    I am crying, it is so beautiful, thanks, M

    Gotta agree with many of you, best cycling short film I’ve seen in a while. Made me wish I was young again. I can only hope my son has this kind of adventurous spirit when he hits their age. Well done chaps and thanks CT for the link.

    Wow, seriously stunning, one of the best vids I’ve seen on the site (though all the roadtripping-type write-ups and vids are always fantastic).

    • jules

      it’s a testament to the Himalayas. they are such an incredibly beautiful and magnificent part of the world.

        I am supposed to be at work but can’t stop looking at this!
        I travelled in a small group from Lhasa accross the Tibetan Plateau to Kathmandu and saw some cyclists on the same route. Some of this scenery looks similar. It’s a stunning part of the world. I spent most of the time wishing I was on a bike not a small bus.

    You should not take that bag on your back. It’s really bad for your back.

  • Brilliant video. I have done this stretch on road bike in August 2013 and will be doing again in September 2015. Climbs very tiring but the worst were descents… Imagine descending through these rough roads on a alloy road bike. I used to ponder over during these descents why I am inflicting so much of pain on myself… Overall… a lifetime experience.

    Wow what a fantastic adventure, I envy you guys. I can see that you have loads of electronic gadgets, how do you guys keep them charging? is there a place to stop and and recharge? or do yoiu guys solely relay on your solar panel. and speaking of that, where do you guys get the solar panel, how much did it cost? is it reliable? i’m planning similar trip. i hope you guys can give me some tips.
