|Vladimir sent me all these photos.
About 1/3 of the time we found a campsite that had some improvements on it. This one had a pretty nice table.
|A fairly typical market in a small village inside one of the ubiquitous log cabins.|
|This is Timothy and I in Novgorod. You can get another glimpse of the Novgorod Kremlin behind us. The size and construction of this Kremlin is fairly typical for that era.|
|Tver on the first day of cycling.|
|Here's Richard and I on one of the unpaved roads we took. I had a run-in with a local about an hour before this photo was taken. I was riding about in the middle of the road by myself. A car came up behind me and honked so I started pulling over to the right side where I should have been in the first place. The driver was meanwhile trying to pass me on the wrong side, and had to bail off the road when I started moving over. He got out and cussed me out thoroughly in Russian. The rest of the gang caught up a few minutes later and we got his car out and sent him on his way... Oops!!|
|I did my first off-road riding with the bent on this trip. This obviously isn't serious offroading, but it's the only photo I have. The bike did fine off road, and better than I thought it would. After Russia and Vietnam, I feel ready to tackle just about any route. The Moscow Times used this photo in a story about the Moscow Cycle Club. You can read the article here.|
