Interesting, but the title of this thread had me expecting Edwardians doing battle with off road terrain on bicycles not some Swedish bloke in the Himalayas in the 1990's, but impressive none the less.

Quite right :)
It is interesting and I'd love to see the bike Hermann Buhl rode on through Austria and Italy too.
Fascinating stuff.

And the great Bill Tillman's ride across Africa by Bike in the 30ies.
What an adventure.
I wonder what bike he was on?
