Previet! Sorry I forgot my Ukrainian. Wow! That's a lot of climbing and riding. I visited Ukraine and I hope to return to ride there one day, it's a great country. I would love to ride in Crimea.
Good luck with you your brevet.

rotated to the Nitto Bars and it revealed itself as a Fixie site.

Serhiy, I am very glad to see someone riding long distance from Ukraine. I used to live in Eastern Ukraine and long distance cycling is not very popular over there, people usually ride mountain bikes. How many people are riding with you long distance and how popular long distance cycling in your part of the world? Judging by you Garmin info it is very popular with you
When are you planning the 1200 ? How many people signed up for it?

Thank you for support.

Brevet Karpaty-Podilla is pussible first ever 1200 K long distance trial, which will be organized in Ukraine. Hope also to get sunny and not to hot and comfortable three days for it. Any way it will be started, I think.

In Europe the long distances are very popular, good sample is Paris - Brest - Paris. You possible know this one, it is a famous brevet.

***I'd like to update my Garmin with power option. It would be usefull to get overal data.

I think, you will have some serious competition to recruit international randonneurs, because LEL(London-Edinburgh-London) 1400 km ride is also this coming summer. I have already some friends signed up for LEL. I would like to go home to Ukraine to ride the 1200 though.
