Nizhny Novgorod - Vladivostok: on a bicycle for 175 days

Nizhny Novgorod - Vladivostok: on a bicycle for 175 days

On November 13, Alexey Mylnikov's bicycle trip from Nizhny Novgorod to Vladivostok ended. “175 days. 9802 km. Almost the whole country is behind. And then I suddenly reached my goal !!! Friends, no matter how I tried for the last few days to realize the fact that this moment was approaching, I could not. I still do not understand what is happening. Obviously, only one thing - now I'm entering Vladivostok! ”, - the traveler shared on his social network.

Alexey Mylnikov kicked off 23 May 2014 year from Nizhny Novgorod. "When I planned my trip, I expected that 9000 km, 7 main federal routes, 7 time zones, 18 regions, more than 50 cities, including 7 million + hundreds of smaller settlements, are waiting for me. Also, as far as I can, I plan to deviate from the main route in order to visit the following places: Cheboksarskaya HPP, meteoritic Lake Chebarkul, Korkinsky coal mine, Krasnoyarsk HPP, Krasnoyarsk Pillars National Park, Olkhon Island on Lake Baikal, Buddhist complex "Ivolginsky datsan", - he said on the eve of the trip.

And now the dream came true! During the trip, Alex shared his everyday impressions, paying attention to details that can not be found in any guidebook.

Here is what he writes about Birobidzhan: “First of all, I was extremely pleasantly surprised by the high level of culture among the townspeople. And this is manifested primarily, in my subjective opinion, in the culture of communication and driving. No matter how hard I tried to listen to the conversations of the most diverse people, during 2 full days of my stay here I never heard a single obscene word !!! The drivers were amazed by their exceptional law-abidingness: no one drives behind the stop line; no one rushes from their place to a blinking traffic light; in front of pedestrian crossings they stop, barely noticing a person walking on the sidewalk. Drivers do not create a nervous atmosphere. I became a participant in a funny but indicative case: the minibus driver, without interfering with other participants (one was on this section of the road at that moment), slowed down in front of me, seeing that he was blocking my panoramic view when photographing ... Surprisingly, with all modern appearance and infrastructure, the atmosphere here is still saturated with the Soviet spirit.

At the end of the journey, the author gives an overview of the Russian roads: "Summing up the results of the road quality, the best will be the P297 (especially the Transbaikalian region) and P255 (from Novosibirsk to Irkutsk). As for all the other federal highways that I managed to drive, there are undoubtedly excellent quality sites: with bumpers, smooth surface, clear markings, no potholes and patches, a wide shoulder. However, most of them require major repairs. "

What is not a modern Radishchev to you ?!
