It was probably a mistake to volunteer that you are cycling. Just say that you changed your mind and are no longer cycling. Then give the name of a couple of hotels in Ashgabat and Mary (should be easy to find online or in LP), and say you're taking the overnight train to Turkmenabat.

Most cyclists get their Turkmen visas in Iran because they are date specific and it's difficult to plan months in advance when you are cycling.
