Here’s the mission

Kazak motorbike riding adventure

Aral The Lost Sea
It’s a story of human interference with nature, it’s effects on the people in the small town
of Aralsk, it’s fishermen now cut off from their boats as the sea that disappeared left their boats
stranded in a desert. “Ships in a desert! how can that be!? you might ask”
Here’s an adventure with a mission you can participate in, your own moto adventure, by any form of wheeled transport, to go see and explore for yourself.

You’ll meet incredible friendly people along the way & have an adventure whilst you’re at it.
As well as raising awareness your your own favourite charity, you’ll be helping bring a little more wealth to the tiny town that’s lost it’s seaside livelihood,
Aralsk – as it proudly tries to regain it’s place.

It all helps; there’s an ever busier little railway station, a returning vibrant market atmosphere, the road’s being re-made – so go discover it for yourself, whilst it still remains one of the worlds last off-grid from Europe travel experiences.

A short film ‘Aral The Lost Sea”

Kazakhstan is a vast open free spirited land – perfect MotoExplorers terrain

“a rally”!!! well – not a race! more “a free-spirited informal challenge” where you can totally do your own thing,  all low key / low budget, be random and spontaneous!
crazy, risky, adventure, The world needs a bit more of it, just let go of the reigns n’ see where the stallion leads you!!!
Kazak’s still one of the last ‘free to roam and explore’ frontiers,
a land of free-spirited adventures, (& if you want to venture further, Kyrgyzstan is also brilliant)
or if you’re really in for a long haul overlanding – you can just keep going to China!

I’ve travelled a few loops of this amazing Country, both the north and south silk routes to Tash Rabat / China order.  

moto road Kazakhstan

On the Explorer rides, we travel a whole loop of the Silk Road! “A Great big Riding Adventure” on a scale not many western motorcyclists have ventured.
Kazakhstan is actually a very well developed, civilised Country, it’s the size of Europe with no enemies + quite a few nice hotels nowadays! (and even petrol stations with fuel)

Roads & moto riding transit routes to “The Stans” Kazakhstan / Kyrgyzstan

Most of the road routes have been recently upgraded, to ‘a road’! and are gradually having asphalt applied in vast quantities, (imported from China!) generally we can now do these routes using 90% asphalt roads, (of some description!)
There are of-course plenty of opportunities to explore a bit more off the beaten track, on these expeditions.
