overview

On a weeklong cycle through the secluded areas of Russia, this exhilarating bike ride will immerse us in Russian history, culture and nature. Covering up to 185km a day we will explore the Russian capitals of St. Petersburg and Novgorod, visit Second World War cemeteries, and enjoy the spa resort of Staraya Russa and the Dostoyevsky museum. Peddling along rivers, and through the picturesque woods of Valday Hills, our adventure concludes with a celebratory meal in Moscow.

This fully-inclusive adventure through Russia will begin as soon you register; you will receive a challenge pack with all the essentials you may need. Not only will we sort out all charity formalities for you, but we also offer pre-challenge briefings and training weekends in the UK where you can meet your cycle leaders. As a team we will board a flight to St Petersburg, ready to take on this challenge bike ride!
