In 1820, it took 150 horses, 10 camels, 28 oxen, 30 Cossacks and 91 days for a Russian delegation to travel from the border fortress town of Kyagt, Russia, to Beijing, China. The journey was recorded by George Timkowski in his book "Travels of the Russian Mission through Mongolia to China".

"I will lead a nomadic life retracing this journey which also follows the historical tea and trade route through Russia, Mongolia and China, crossing mountains, rivers and the Gobi Desert, using my Radical Design wheelie".
