There are lots of bikers in Kiev, and most of them are communication through the local bike forum. Amongst of topics about bike equipment and maintenance techniques there are topics where bikers can arrange joint bike journey. The journey can be long or short, cross-country or in the local park. Somebody takes responsibility to set the route and timeline and invites other bikers to take part.
I found there a very interesting and unusual early morning journey and recently took part in it. The trip starts at 4.30AM every Thursday and takes about 24km with one stop near the river to watch the sunrise, then eat some snack and drink tea. The one-way route without way to home is here. The average speed was about 17 kmh which is quite hight for the cross-country.
I’d like to thank everybody who was patient to me as a newbie and didn’t steam ahead. Some photos from the trip are here.
