Moto sea­son is in full swing! Since the weath­er con­di­tions in Rus­sia do not allow rid­ing a bike all year round, you need to take the max­i­mum from the sum­mer. Our coun­try, with its diverse col­ors and amaz­ing nat­ur­al beau­ty, can give motorists unfor­get­table emo­tions. We have pre­pared for you the top five most inter­est­ing routes in cen­tral Rus­sia, which you can over­come over the week­end and have a great time with friends.

  • Tula-Voronezh

The whole road and the final des­ti­na­tion, the city of Voronezh, are char­ac­ter­ized by ide­al roads, the very move­ment along which is a real plea­sure. The abun­dance of sights and reserved places is also pleas­ing, which are def­i­nite­ly worth a look. Pass­ing through Tula, be sure to stop at the Krem­lin, vis­it the muse­um of the world-famous Tula gin­ger­bread and be sure to look into Yas­naya Polyana — the estate of Leo Tol­stoy. In Voronezh, you can stroll along the most beau­ti­ful wide embank­ments and land­scaped mod­ern parks that com­bine unique nature and infra­struc­ture.

  • Zadon­sk-Lipet­sk

Along this route, there will be so many unique nat­ur­al reserves and, lit­er­al­ly, fab­u­lous places on your way that you will remem­ber this trip for a long time. In the Zadon­sk region is the same Kudyk­i­na moun­tain. Inde­scrib­able land­scapes that evoke peace and tran­quil­i­ty, an alley of fruit trees, an ancient Russ­ian fortress built with­out a sin­gle nail accord­ing to the draw­ings of the 5th cen­tu­ry, amaz­ing instal­la­tions and the star of this place — a 15-meter-high, spew­ing real flame, Ser­pent Gorynych. This spec­ta­cle will remain in your mem­o­ry for­ev­er! Be sure to vis­it Sko­rnyako­vo-Arkhangel­skoye. This is a restored noble estate with a small farm, a good restau­rant and a cozy hotel.

  • Vladimir-Suz­dal

These cities are real archi­tec­tur­al gems of our coun­try. Such a num­ber of mon­u­men­tal ancient Ortho­dox church­es are nowhere to be found: the Inter­ces­sion on the Nerl, the Bogolyub­sky Monastery, the Moth­er of God-Nativ­i­ty Monastery, the Cathe­dral of St. Demetrius, the Cathe­dral of the Assump­tion. An amaz­ing old Russ­ian atmos­phere reigns in this city, which can­not be described, but can only be felt. The next point of your jour­ney along this route should be the city of Suz­dal, because on the first week­end of July there is a large-scale inter­na­tion­al motor­cy­cle fes­ti­val Suz­dal Blues-Bike Fest.

  • Tver-Val­dai

The road here is more dif­fi­cult and inter­est­ing. If this is your first motor­cy­cle sea­son, do not start with this route. Harsh for­est con­di­tions and off-road require some train­ing and expe­ri­ence. One of the bright­est places on this route is Lake Seliger of incred­i­ble beau­ty. Green islands in the mid­dle of the vast expanse of water — this is some­thing bewitch­ing! And not far from the lake begins the Val­dai Nation­al Park — a real nat­ur­al shrine of Rus­sia. The laid eco-paths will allow you to enjoy vir­gin nature with­out harm to it and to us.

  • Vyaz­ma-Smolen­sk

Build your route so that you stop at the Borodi­no Field Muse­um-Reserve. A cult place for our coun­try will immerse you in the atmos­phere of that fate­ful bat­tle. And if you’re lucky, you can get to some his­tor­i­cal event or recon­struc­tion. A day or two is worth spend­ing in Smolen­sk. In terms of the num­ber of parks and archi­tec­tur­al mon­u­ments, this city is in no way infe­ri­or to St. Peters­burg, which is worth only Bologna Park with ele­gant sculp­tures and a green gar­den. So that your motor­cy­cle trip is not over­shad­owed by trou­bles, always remem­ber about dri­ving safe­ty and prop­er equip­ment. Your ammo should con­sist of:

  • A high-qual­i­ty hel­met that should not both squeeze the head and jump off.
  • Motor­cy­cle jack­ets. It should not be ignored even in sum­mer. For com­fort­able rid­ing in warm weath­er, choose a motor­cy­cle jack­et made from light­weight, breath­able mate­r­i­al such as ASPOLIFE.
  • Pants with pro­tec­tion. Motor­cy­cle pants will help pro­tect our frag­ile low­er limbs. Pants Aspo­life have a high degree of pro­tec­tion of all the most vul­ner­a­ble areas. And due to the unique ABS mate­r­i­al, they remain light and elas­tic.
