Q&A with Alpinist Kyle Dempster
Bicycling blog “The Bicycle Story” recently sat down with Piolet d’Or award winner Kyle Dempster to talk about his solo bike trip through Kyrgyzstan combining biking and mountaineering.
Having never been on a long distance bike tour, Kyle talks about how the adventure came to be. “Originally it was a trip my girlfriend and I had planned to do together, exploring mountains via bicycle.

Kyrgyzstan, as a climber, is certainly a place that beckons a visit at some point.”
