Dear friends, we invite you to take a trip on one of the most interesting parts of the First National cycle route of Russia. The estimated bike route will be 260 kilometers, not including all transfers. However, these distances can be either increased or decreased, depending on the group, their physical training and the individual wishes of our guests. A professional sports leader (English or German speaking), a minibus and a car of technical support will accompany the cycling group. Across all the way, we provide your customers with accommodation in comfortable hotels (almost all hotels are 4*).
The bike route will start from the Upper Volga, from the old town of Staritsa, where the river is not that deep. Gradually we will approach the Moscow region and the Volga here will be much deeper and full flowing – surrounding landscapes will change as well, and we shall see more and more grandiose sights and architectural monuments. And the bike tour will reveal the extraordinary originality, the colorfulness of Russian hinterland and the true Russian soul, which is not always possible to experience when you make a trip through the big cities of Russia. You will meet interesting people, who not only love their homeland, but also know a lot about their area, and will be ready and glad to share these knowledges with you.
Our bike route will have its logical ending in a symbolic place for Russian Orthodoxy – in the town of Sergiev Posad, the «pearl» of the Golden Ring of Russia. The tour program is rich in events – we will pass many authentic villages and visit several old monasteries and churches, active and dilapidated. We will also visit a couple of museums and manors, and make stops in the famous Old Russian towns, get several master classes, have fun and rest by the bank of the River Volga. Most of the trip will take place on rural and earth roads in ecologically clean parts of Tver and Moscow regions. Only these two stages will be on asphalt roads with little traffic, and under the supervision of our staff. The first night of the tour will take place in a hotel in the historical center of Moscow, where we will gather all of the participants of the bike tour. After the tour, we will come from Sergiev Posad to Moscow. Those who wish, may continue exploring the capital of our country. We are ready to organize an interesting program on request in advance.
