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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
