Welcome to our Brighton2Siberia site. We left the UK on our motorcycles in April 2011 heading for the far side of Siberia – the Kamchatka peninsula. Along the way, we will pass through France and Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria to Turkey. There we will cross from Europe into Asia, and continue through Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgystan and Kazakhstan before entering Russia for the first time. After a few miles in Russia, we will enter Mongolia, before crossing back into Russia to begin to explore Siberia. The route plan goes as far as Magadan, and how we get from there to Kamchatka is as yet unknown.
Please follow the links above to navigate the site – the Blog contains our travel journal which will be updated when possible. If you click on “Blog” you get everything in conventional-blog-format reverse chronological order. If you select a region in the drop-down, you will see articles from that region in chronological order. There are also pages with information on the bikes we’re taking, another with GPS waypoints which we will update occasionally en route, and a link to our fundraising page for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
