Hi, I am planning to cycle from Manali around the 26th Sept, arriving in Leh around the 6th Oct.
I understand the weather will be cold and that it is possible the road could be blocked for a few days due to heavy snow - I will have a few days buffer to get to Leh. I have my own tent and plenty of cold weather gear. I have cycled passes not quite as high before (5000m), although it wasn't this cold.
My question is whether it is likely there would be a bus or other large vehicle capable of transporting me and a bicycle on this route at that time? If I have any problems (cold, altitude, too much ice to cycle etc) it would be nice to know I have a backup plan as I will have a flight out of Leh back to Delhi.
Thanks very much for any information.
