Travel in Russia




Travel Agency Three WhalesE-mail
IDEA OF THE TRIP.We want to invite people interested in cycling Russia and learning more about this big country. Cycling is not the goal of the tour. It is more like a mean of transportation and a way of staying fit. We want you to spend your vacation in an active way and learn a lot of the Russian history. That is why we have our van or a car with us to take you to places in time, give you a lift if you are tired or in case of bad weather. Almost every day has time for cycling and sightseeing. We want you to see as much of the Russian heritage as possible riding the bike rather then using the bus all the time. The tour is escorted by English speaking stuff and all the excursions are conducted by professional local guides. We want to make the trip as pleasant and comfortable for your as possible so NO TENTS we use hotel, NO NEED TO BRING A BIKE you can rent it from us, NO COOKING AND SNACK FOOD we use restaurants, tired of riding a bike - TAKE A BREAK IN OUR VAN.

Almost every day has time for cycling and sightseeing. We want you to see as much of the Russian heritage as possible riding the bike rather then using the bus all the time. All the excursions are conducted by professional local guides. Moreover we have a guide who will accompany you through all the tour and a bike instructor who will be able to solve technical issues.

 
CAN I PARTICIPATE? If you do not have health problems, can ride a bike and make 15 km an hour you can participate.

GROUP POLICY.Each group can not be more then 10 participants. The speed of the ride is determined by the slowest cycler. All participants must stay in group and follow traffic rules. If you are tired let the instructor know and the van will give you a lift.
BICYCLES AND EQUIPMENT. We use mountain bikes since they are more suitable for Russian roads. You can rent a bike from us in case you do not have one or do not want to bring it with you. You are responsible for bringing your own helmet. Helmet is a must.
