What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Park Kultury Metro Station, Ostozhenka, 53/2/8, Moscow 119021 Russia

Way to Park Kultury metro station - 10 minHop on your bicycles; it’s going to be a smooth ride through the streets and parks of marvellous Moscow!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Muzeon Art Park, Krymskiy Val, 2, Moscow 119049 Russia

We’ll begin by passing the vibrant Museon Park which bills itself as an ‘open air museum,’ full to the brim with unusual sculptures and relics of Russia’s eclectic past. Many of them date back to Soviet times, when propaganda was a powerful tool and sculpture was an effective weapon.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Patriarshy Bridge, Prechistenskaya Embankment, Moscow Russia

Next, we’ll glide along the river embankment and across Patriarch Bridge which we think holds the key to the best views in the city. We will linger here to admire and take photos of the panorama of Moscow river, the Kremlin walls/towers, St Basil Cathedral and the statue of Peter the Great.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Balchug St, д. 1, Moskva, Russia, 115035

Balchug Island has a fascinating if somewhat dark history and that’s where we’re heading to next to check out Red October, a former chocolate factory which has evolved into a trendy district buzzing with hip bars and art galleries.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Volkhonka, 15, Moscow 119019 Russia

Cycling by the Cathedral of Christ the Savior we will reach Prechistinka Street where we’ll uncover more Soviet secrets. We will talk about famous Soviet sculptors and architects and see for ourselves some beautiful examples of the art nouveau style.

Next we’ll head to Maiden Field, a residential quarter, where we will learn about everyday life for modern day Muscovites.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Usachovskiy Market, Ulitsa Usacheva, 26, Moskva, Russia, 119048

If you’re feeling peckish, don’t despair because our next stop will be at a delightful food market called Usachevsky (‘Усачевский’). Here we’ll take a lunch break and try some traditional Russian dishes with vegetables or with meat. We’ll also offer you a tasty and refreshing drink that the locals go crazy for.

After lunch we will ride along the river embarkment, passing by amazing views of the city towards our end point. Before you go, don't forget to tap your local guide for more tips on what else to see, do, and eat during your time in Moscow.

Please note: The tour lasts 3 hours and we will mostly be tackling a flat bike road approximately 10km in length. No special physical preparation is required. We suggest putting on some comfy clothes for cycling and comfy shoes. A bottle of water is a very good idea as well!

Duration: 50 minutes
