RIDE WHEREVER YOU WANT TO

According to an old Russian saying, "There are no roads in Russia, only directions". Like hundreds of years ago, it's still the same - the "roads" are just ideas for a direction to go in. It means, everything you see around you is your riding terrain. Compared to other countries where you have to stick to the trails, Russia offers a unique opportunity to ride wherever you want to. The main reason for this freedom is the state property of most of the land. Like in the former socialistic times the land actually belongs to nobody. So, if you see, let's say a hill, steep climb or whatever, then just go there if you want to.

95% OFF-ROAD

Hilly, spacious forest-steppe landscapes with a number of lakes and rivers as well as Ural Mountains with altitude differences of up to 2,500 ft., mainly covered by the difficult to access taiga (forest). Unpaved field and forest trails; partly muddy and slippery logging trail with deep grooves and puddles as well as some stones; overgrown, for decades no longer used forest trails with overturned trees; river crossings; gravel roads.

LOCALITIES

Small remote villages and settlements, small towns with mainly Russian, Bashkir and Tartar population as well as the Ufa – the capital of the Russian federal republic Bashkortostan with population of more than 1.1 million.

DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY

Our route is designed for riders with off-road experience. Therefore, it is not suitable for novice off-road riders. However, having good physical condition, riders with limited off-road skills would consider this a challenge, and most definitely possible one. Pro-riders will have a possibility in terms of increasing their personal degree of difficulty. In the relatively easy sections of the route, experienced riders can move alongside the trails and go up to their own riding limits, where less experienced riders follow the guide.




According to an old Russian saying "there is no roads in Russia, only directions"; and like hundred years ago, it didn't really change. The "roads" on the pictures, are just ideas for a direction to go. It means, everything else you see around is your riding terrain. Compared to other countries, Russia offers a unique opportunity to RIDE WHEREVER YOU WANT to. The main reason for this liberty of action is the state property for the most of the land. Like in the former socialistic times the land factually belongs to nobody. So, if you see let's say a hill, just go over it, if you can.

Our itinerary concept takes advantage of this freedom and gives you flexibility in terms of selecting your comfortable DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY:

  • Experienced riders can move "alongside the roads" an go up to their riding limits as long as they can;
  • Less experienced riders can stay on the "road" and learn step by step the advanced riding techniques.

Having TWO GUIDES, which stay in permanent radio contact, we can split the group in experienced and less experienced riders, and move simultaneously forward.
