    I just got offered a job and will be landing in Bishkek in a week and be there for the next 1-3 years and am looking to explore those amazing mountains there. I figure the best way to do that is by bike and with a few new friends :freaky. So if anyone is currently there and looking for a riding partner (word of warning I am a noob rider but extreme-veteran traveler) or could offer me advice on the best place to find a bike I'd love to hear from you. Thanks in advance!

    Just saw your post, wondered if you ever made it to Kstan? I ride here and there are a handful of us who do, but it's not many.

    I know its a long time post but if you're interested we do rides from almaty to Bishkek and Issyk Kul and Toktogul and other places. did you ride from Bishkek to Osh? To my mind its one of the best roads with lots of twisties and almost perfect pavement and some offroad routes as well.
