Horseback Mongolia, partner of the Asia Pacific Bike Ride 2015
Oct 27 2015
The event of the 2015 season is undoubtedly the Asia Pacific Bike Ride, which was held from the 25th to 28th of September. In the aim to raise money for a local charity, 110 participants from 16 countries competed in a bike challenge. This year, Mongolia was proud to host this event, which usually takes place once a year in a different country. Horseback Adventure travel agency was honoured to be part of the organisation. It was a great success, despite the rough weather conditions at the end of this touristic season. For this purpose, we made a video footage, putting forward beautiful aerial views of the contest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXI8Fp2lh0I It is in the Mongolian steppes, in the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, not far from Ulaan Baatar that during 2 days that our bikers had to face over 100km wind, snow and low temperatures (-10°C in the morning) to reach victory for the sake of the Mongolian association Tsolmon-Ireedui Foundation, which strives to give education and shelter the needy children of Ulaan Baatar. Hence a beautiful adventure overtook not only by eager participants, who had to go through several passes, but also our team who gave 100% of themselves to ensure the safety of our guests in Mongolia.
