There are few cycling trips which capture so much of a country's historical, natural and cultural legacies within the space of a week, as this trip does between some of Russia's most colourful cities. The list of highlights are vast, from sightseeing in Moscow, to following mostly car free routes along the mighty Volga River and between such cities as Dmitrov, Vladimir and Tver. In Sergiev Posad, home to one of the most revered monasteries in Russia, the Trinity Lavra of St Sergius, we gain an insight into the history of the Russian Orthodox Church, whilst in Vladimir, the medieval capital of Russia, we view 12th century buildings which survived the city's rich history. Enroute we stay in handpicked accommodation from a restored manor house to a holiday park Russian style, to a city hotel in the heart of Moscow's historic centre.

Whilst cycling is an important component of the trip we also include a master class on making Russian Pelmeni (dumplings usually eaten on New Years Eve) and a chance to explore your creative side during a art class where you will paint your very own Matryoshka, the traditional Russian wooden doll.
