This is the trail that was ploted and riden by Walter colebatch and friends
Sibirsky Extreme 2012 - The Toughest Ride of Them All - ADVrider
Please read this thread/ ride report to see if you think this is the kind of trip you would like to make as its a very hard ride and not for everyone . 3 months offroad will be hard on the mind ,body and bike

I know the report. I have read just about every page twice. I know i am unable to do all that route. Having been a pencil-pusher for the better part of my life, my physical condition can hardly be called top-notch. That's why I want to limit myself to only a part of the route during one month. Then take a one month break, followed by a second part, returning home, over another one month period. I wil be glad if i make to Ulaan-bataar in a month.

Don't put yourself down mate. The is 16 months to get fit. It only takes 48 hours for muscle tissue to rebuild. After 1 month you will just be starting to get bike fit. If you then go home for one month all fitness gained will be lost in that time

Sibirsky extreme trail

Privet!

I'm planning to do the trail as well, doesn't matter if staying 100% true to the route or not though.
Mostly looking forward to nice trail/track/offroad riding without too many obstacles (unlike here in sweden).

Riding a 690R, and would like to stay on suitable tracks (i.e. no wrestling in mud holes for days on end :) )

Started pondering a bit on how to get back home (riding both ways takes too much time), maybe possible to put myself and bike on train to moscow? Have to do more research :)

I feel that it might be best to stick to the trail as best as possible . Staying with it would seem better than having to backtrack to find were we are upto plus Walter has taken a lot of time and effort into making the best route that he could. As Walter has been to most of these places many times and is well experienced in this area I don't see how it would be possible to make it into a better ride .... But if Walter or others that have riden the trail have some other recommendation I'm all
Happy xmas all ADVers

As Kito said, i think too its better to stay on the track instead of trying to find it again after leaving the trail.
At last we don`t know, what kind of track we will find in 2015...Maybe some Riders do it next year and made a RR

@pdegroote, i`m a pencil pusher too but i am sure, that one year of training gives us the power to handle with the obstacles the sibirski extreme trail will show us

Starting my bike build with the thoughts of doing this trip in 2015. I know it is a long way off but you have to speak out loud about the trip as a first step to make it seem real. We would be shipping our bikes to Europe and heading east from there and then shipping back to Vancouver from the east coast. Lots of planning to do!

Read his reports on the BAM road and road of Bones. I guess for the Sibrisky trail he added the off road trails to get across Russia to these roads.

I imagine it would be a blast with a decent group of people.

The problem is as the roads aren't maintained they will be getting worse and worse every year. Eventually it'll reach the point where BAM and others are completely impassible by anything.

Just subscribing for now....bike is in the build phase and another inmate posting in this thread has planted a few travel seeds.

Are you guys following this RR as well?
