anyone with a legitimate need, to promote cycling in Moscow, can have this account for FREE.  But you have to demonstrate some commitment to the purpose: bring lonely road riders back to their bikes while living in Moscow.

We are happy to take on new riders, who want to be members or just to drop in.  We do expect some level of road riding proficiency.  If you are a "leisure cyclist", there might be some members or member spouses that can accomodate you.  We can also suggest places and routes for leisure cycling.
 
We offer a variety of City and Country rides at Moderate Tempo's (25-30+ km/ hr averages) and a variety of distances, gnerally 80-100km.  Start times vary as the Sunrise in Moscow changes a lot.  We ride from late March to early
December [yes, below zero...doesn't mean we like it]
 
Typical Rides Include:
1) to and from Krylatskoye, with laps there, 40 km and up
2) city rides including to Center, Sokolniki, Nagantanski Zatan, Moscow State University, The Embankments, Gorky Park - 80-125 km
3) country rides tow the west of Moscow (Istra, Khimki, Skhodnya, Volokolamsk - 100-200 km
 
During Winter we have a trainer that gives us access to the Velodrome for indoor cycling.  It is a world class velodrome, and very fast (on a track bike).  No track bike needed, most of the guys use a road bike on the apron, but the rides are fast, steady and quite challanging with high average speeds, 35+km/hr.  Good fun.
 
 
Contact our members for information on the details of the rides.  We have a mailing list and this is the main method by which rides are arranged.
