It's a nice idea. Might drop off in the winter months though.

Personally, I'd lose the EU pop up cookies thing. People detest them.

Its just a seasonal tour June till September, were not running bike tours in the winter, cycling is pretty big you can expect 4-10 people per tour usually every day of the week in the summer we already did a few this year ,we are top of search in Google and Bing for that tour so Im expecting lots of happy travellers at some point..we checked out the competition several years ago even been on their tours undercover  :smokin:

We just added a helicopter tour for next summer they don't advertise for foreigners so were doing it..

Stevieboy, you may need to supply electric bikes for some of the more matured members of the board should they show any interest.... :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

Russia has come a long way when it comes to cycling over the last few years, when I first arrived here hardly any cyclists about, today there are new cyclist lanes .. dedicated cyclist roads coming up all over the town, any weekend in the summer your out there are literally thousands of people out on their bikes from all ages , everyone is cycle crazy suddenly over the last couple of years , some days its hard to believe how many bicycles are out on the streets .. of course its great for your health also .. we usually do about 100-120 miles a week during the summer, I can cycle forever of course St Petersburg is flat so its not to strenuous.

They are building a new dedicated cycle road Moscow - St Petersburg - Moscow with stops along the road, accommodation and so on , were doing it as soon as its finished a few hard days cycling for that trip.. ;D

As for the crazy drivers.. yeah plenty of them I have had a few wanting to get out of the car for a fight  :laugh:
Actually lots are up for stopping the car and getting out or following me down the road shouting abuse :chuckle: :chuckle:

Can anyone help? I cannot see many images posted. I am using Firefox.

I believe this is a good concept for when tourism is less restricted by the pandemic.
