Russian scenery


Mother Russia welcomed us into her bosom with great weather and scenery, as if in direct competition with Mongolia. The start of the Altai mountains are spectacular, and I’m sure there’s more to come. The big difference here is, you can actually take your eyes off the road for more than 2 seconds to enjoy it!

We rode through amazing gorges, canyons and alongside rivers as we descended from over 6000ft to around 3000. As my thoughts wondered, I realised that I’ve ridden my bike higher than I’ve ever flown a hang glider. I’d never have thought that, I guess I didn’t quite get to the peak of flying – it was still pretty awesome though.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
