Walking/biking tour of Asia

While I read Cool Tools for reviews on hiking, camping, and travelling, the truth is I’m 100% urban bred. My dream, however, is to embark on a solo walking/biking trip through a number of Asian countries including China, Russia, and the Caucuses. I daydream of biking out of my Chinese city into the surrounding villages, and I’m looking for any resources or guides for the uninitiated.
