Mountain Biking on the Banks of the Ural River, Kazakhstan


Contributor and pilot Seki created this drone video of an epic mountain biking trip in western Kazakhstan.  The spot is Polousov Yar, on the banks of the Ural River.  The river is by far the most important waterway in this landlocked Central Asian country.  It runs over 2.4k (about 1.5k mi.), making it the third longest river in Europe after the Volga and the Danube.  In the Western Kazakhstan region, it runs a southerly route to its discharge, a delta in the (inland) Caspian Sea, near the city of Atyrau.
