    Rider from Russia

    Dear collegues! I am Andrey from Russia 34 years old. I was born in Ivanovo - the city not very far from our capital. My cycling carrier began in 1990 years when I was 15. My first serious trip was between two towns about 75 km. Further I got carried away and gradually trained to quite good phisical fitness. In four years I could easy pass 240 km a day. But my bike was usual singlespeed. But then there were no internet and bike forums and no cycling clubs in my small town and I traveled alone. Initially my riding stile was by asphalt roads and now I generally ride roads and sometimes for variety I ride by dirts.
    Now I live in Korolev - the surbub town of Moscow and work in Russian office of John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. (American scientific publishing corporation). I am active member of cycling community during last four years and travel by Russia and not far abroad. I have a plan to visit Romania and Bulgaria this year. I study English to travel the Europe and communicate with my easten collegues. I already have one English report about tour by Ukraine and can tell more about travelling in Russia and also can publish English report about tour by Russian Black Sea coast.

    I already posted my report of the tour by Crimea in Blogger's forum. I also have the draft of my tour by Krasnodar Region with a small team. As opposed to the Crimea tour it was a trip in very mattress pace. I can publicate it in Live Journal if you want.
    ("Mattress" pace is very slow and "Elk's" pace is very fast in our slang. "Elk" is very trained sportsmen feeling like racing to long distances. "Mattresser" is beginner or not feeling like fast ride.) I think your have not less peculiar phrases.
    The south of Russia is the most likely area to travel in spring and automn to prolong a cycling season in more warm places. Other places I visited are there I lived. I know good Ivanovo, Yaroslavl, Samara, Moscow regions. I know a little the regions around Moscow and also Penza and Ulyanovsk. What would you like to know?

    I can tell your as soon as I gather a team to travel. It can be I'll ride alone or with one my friend. I plan to ride by Black Sea coast from Nikolaev (Ukrain) to Burgas (Bulgaria) and to cover not large territory of Romania (Galați, Tulcea, Constanța) with two days boat tour by Danube Delta perchased at local agency. The pace is about 25 km/h, the day run is 140 km.

    If your want to hear about classic Soviet racing bicycles the most popular is Старт-шоссе (Start-road). http://www.adslclub.ru/forum/topic57...d1b9cd942af2e6 There is a picture. I see original soviet saddle resembling "Brooks". Now it's not produced but I like it. In the other hand the original Brooks is expensive but worth to buy for its long life. The maximal speed is 70 km/h. It has only one front derailer. But I never had bicycle of this type.
    Your can see more pictures in Google search.
