Cycling routes and bike maps in and around


Enjoy bike routes through historic cities or unspoiled nature thanks to the bike route planner. Russia, the country of contrasts, extends over two continents and ten time zones. Russia’s most known metropoles, the old city of tsars St. Petersburg and the modern Moscow are impressively beautiful and are equally attractive as the Russian lowlands’ pure nature. The wide landscape gives an idea of Russia’s size and ferocity, endless birch forests, untouched lakes and former villages seem like a trip to the past.
