Kazakstan-Kyrgystan-Xinjang (western China)- Mongolia


I am a female traveler from Canada (quebec) in my early 20s looking for a cyclotouring buddy for a trip in Central Asia. I am studying philosophy and anthropology at McGill university, have traveled independently since i'm 18 years old, and love to be outdoors.

I am intending to travel from may- to the end of august. I have been pretty sedentary during winter, but I trust that I will get back in shape quickly. I am not 'goal'oriented when I cycle-tour, but rather try to appreciate the beauty that comes our way, and to be as open as possible!I like to stop sometimes and spend a day or two hiking in the mountains when an opportunity comes by! I travel on low-buget, and eat vegetarian food. (although might be difficult in central asia).

The ideal cycle-buddy would share a similar vision about cyclotouring. I am looking for someone who is not in a rush, open to cultures and peoples, minimalist, flexible, and willing to wild camp all the time.

I don't have a fixed route/plan for the moment, and happy to plan it with you!

" vegetarian food

" vegetarian food (although might be difficult in central asia)"

I am generally vegan, but I simply change my diet in Central Asia. There are very few vegetarian options in rural areas, everything is made with meat. But also, offering you food is a strong part of hospitality in the region, and by refusing to eat their food you can seriously offend your hosts. They simply won’t understand vegetarianism as a choice. I would argue that to be a culturally sensitive cyclist in the region, you will have to eat meet at least occasionally.

Hi Christopher,  I am

Hi Christopher,  I am absolutely aware of what you are pointing out, but thank you for spelling it. I do adapt my diet and I am grateful for any hospitality on the road. Nevertheless, since most meals are on my own, I do eat vegetarian for the rest of the time. I hope to find a cycling partner who has the same vision and flexibility.

Hello Chloe, ca va?

Hello Chloe, ca va?

Can we open communications?

I was not actually looking to go, but it may be that something like this is just what I need; 

..I aimed to go here at some point, and did envisage going back to Ukraine this year at least.

So tbh May is too soon for me given what I need prepare, but on other hand, ....well - hence full circle to beginning, let's talk etc.
