Bicycle touring help in Russia

This website seems to be an honest attempt to assist bicycle travelers who wish to see Russia.

This from the home page of the site "Welcome Cycling In Russia - R1 route":

Introduction. Traveling in Russia.

"If you are going to travel in Russia by bike I have good news and bad news for you. Firstly the bad news: things which are often said about Russia are true. It is true that there are territories covered with snow 9 months in the year in Russia. It is true that there are places where it is easier to meet a bear than a human being in Russia. It is true that there are places where villages are located 200 km from one another and cities – 1000 km from one another. And now good news: you won’t experience any of “nightmares” described above on your way. What you will encounter though I will tell you in due course.

1. EuroVelo-1 route in Russia. Velopiter club developed EuroVelo route on the Russian territory, made GPS-tracks and described its every stage. We have chosen more or less quiet roads. But currently the route is not signposted and mostly unpaved. We hope that in the future Leningrad district authorities will signalize the needed roads. . . . "


There is much more on the site.

I suppose it is a little late in the year (September) to be starting a Russian adventure but there is plenty of time for planning next year's trip!
