Tales from the Ice

The brave folk of the 2014 Ice Run are careering across the Ice like a greased up fat man down a bowling alley; to borrow a phrase from Mr Olly Rowland.

Most of them have opted to go North-East at Tavda along 'the tough route' leaving lone wolf Kabir to take the longer 'almost as tough route'.

These are the updates we've found so far.

Dylan & Dalbs - Riding off into the sunset

Day two - separating the men from the boys. Not sure yet which I am.

Ok, first day done! No major issues apart from both falling asleep whilst on the bike, only once at the same time though

First morning waking up on the rally. Heading to a local mechanic to fix some dodgy electrics on the bike.
— Up To Snow Good
Day one: We took the harder eastern route (was there really a choice?) These are the roads so far - pretty fast going and a good ease into the trip. Temperatures are a balmy -12C and the Ural rode like a dream (be it a battered, 30 year old dream). Living it up in a roadside motel with odd wire-hammock beds. Looking forward to the tougher stuff ahead — though I may regret saying so
