On both days we travel up the Tamir Valley, with the river on our right and we’ll veer north-west over two sets of mountains before a fast downhill on dirt tracks into the town of Bulgan where we might stop to pick up more supplies. The road is hilly until 30 kilometres out of Tsetserleg, where we hit some fast dirt tracks with lots of mounds that make for some fine jumps. On Day 9 we’ll camp on the outskirts of Tsetserleg so that we can visit the Aimag (provincial) Museum in the temple Zayayn Gegeenii Sum. After our museum visit, we cycle out of town, down to the Tsetserleg River for lunch. We have three climbs after lunch with mini breaks in between, we reach the top for a long and continuous downhill all the way to camp. Tonight we stay in a ger Camp, to give everyone a chance for showers, hot springs and actual beds for one night.
Approx cycle distance; 24km (Day 8), 73km (Day 9)
