Cycling from Russia to China through Kazakhstan

Postby vakamaka » Mon Jul 22, 2019 2:06 pm

Hello,

I plan to cycle this year across Kazahstan. I will cross the border with Kazahstan near Ozinki/Semiglavyy and plan to leave the Kazahstan on the border station Khorgos.

I plan all the time to cycle the road E38 but on the south after city "Szymkent" the road became "A-2".
I am not sure I am allowed to cycling on my bicycle through A-2 road. Hard to find any informations. Can you guys help me? Any idea about this road?

Great to hear that ;-) but what road I should choose after "Алматы" Almaty city? There is a lot of roads and some without numbers.

Maybe I should cycle by A3 and then next A353?
Or maybe A351 and then road without any number https://prnt.sc/okgo4s ;-)?
There is also A353 and R21 possibility

What do you recommend for me?

it depens on you what do you want to detour to - charyn or altyn emel. both roads, southern and northern are ok. the unnumered and then r21 to jarkend is now brand new highway (i partly drove this highway in 2017 but not from almaty, but from the south). the nothern via kapchagay is highway, then to the east is good road.
