Presentation about an eight-week, 3500 kilometre bicycle journey along the fabled Silk Road from Istanbul to Samarkand. First traveling through Anatolian Turkey skirting the Black Sea, and then climbing the Caucasus Mountains for a meeting with Kurdish tribesman, this group arrived at the holiest city in Central Asia after camping along sea shores, mountain passes, amongst the ruins of ancient cities and in the centres of isolated villages. You will learn about their travels and how they interacted with local cultures along route. Free, everyone welcome, no reservation necessary. In the Redpath Auditorium.
