Famous cycling traveler began the last stage of the round-the-world trip from Primorye

On November 1, the famous Russian bicycle traveler Alexander Osipov began the last leg of his world tour from Primorsky Territory. He will travel about 8 thousands of kilometers through China, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

“One of the routes I ended up here, in Primorye. In 1995 I left Tambov and drove to Vladivostok, then drove across the American continent, across the whole of Africa, crossed Australia and the European continent. Thus, he crossed all continents, but a white spot remained on the map in Asia. Therefore, in order to connect the chain of our routes around the world, we need to travel through Asia from Vladivostok, ”said Alexander Osipov.

The beginning of the November 1 stage, the cyclist plans to complete in 50 days, in order to return home to Tambov, by the New Year.

“I have to buy a Christmas tree at home for the New Year. Usually I start traveling in the fall, because in spring and summer we have an active cycling season in Tambov - competitions, bike rides, bike repairs, ”said the traveler.

Alexander spent the day in Primorye, during which he managed to drive almost 100 kilometers through the most iconic places.

“We drove across all three bridges: the low-water one, to the Russky Island and across the Golden Horn Bay. In general, checking in on a bike on the Russky Island was one of the goals of this trip. It is interesting and very beautiful there. Now you can safely go to Asia, ”the traveler shared.

Having visited most countries of the world, the traveler believes that Russia is the most interesting country.

Tambovchanin conducts all his bike trips with a small baggage, most of which is chocolate.

“I carry only 22 kilograms with me in my bike backpack. Basically - chocolate, this is the only product that can be imported to all countries ”, - said the cyclist.
