Russia FIFA Cup 2018 - Bike rent/Motorcycle tour across Russia for German Fans

Germany is lucky to play in very good cities, they start in Moscow, then Sochi and finally Kazan. From the beginning it looks like an interesting route for a bike tour - Moscow-Sochi-Kazan-Moscow. Unfortunately, between games in Sochi and Kazan it’s just three days’ break (usually 4 days in all groups) and 2000 km distance, so riding over all three cities will require some effort.  

From our point of view there are two options for German football fans. Either do short ride Moscow-Sochi and then take a plane/train to Kazan, or do full tour but with three intense days riding approx. 650-700 km per day from Sochi to Kazan. We will propose more challenging second option in our overview, but you can always take easier route, its up to you. 

Here how it looks like on google maps - https://goo.gl/maps/XyLzuWFVt5r. Route is fantastic, after several days in Moscow with sightseeing tour it goes through several central regions to the South part of the country, to the Black Sea and sub tropical climate of Sochi city. In the end of June you will be able to swim already. From there you will ride through the mountains to the Buddhist region of Kalmikia. Here we have small desert in Russia with Buddha temples, camels and interesting local food. After you will ride along the Volga river to the north, first through Volgograd (unfortunately no time to stop in the city, just pass through, may be with short one hour stop to see main city sights), then Saratov and finally to Kazan.

 

Kazan is considered to be third capital of Russia. here we have many Muslim temples and special local food and nationality - tatars, leaving here. After Kazan you will ride through several cities of the Golden Ring back to Moscow.
