#BikeJamboree in Siberia, Russia | @bike_jamboree #ScoutsPoland #Stage7

🇵🇱 and it’s over #etap7. In 25 days we drove on our bikes 1440 km in raw Siberia, without one day of rest, in perfect health and mood. From Omsk, along the border with Kazakhstan on the roads of different quality, rather little with beautiful views of the forests and steppes by Bagan, karasuk, czernovkę, proletarskij, krasny, krasny jar, novosybirsk then along River River River River The car which connects both its edges around 20 km long, then berdsk, burmistrowo, czingis, shipunovo, telemenka, barnaul.

The Frost accompanied us every day, and the sun also didn’t left us almost at all. And Deciding to spread the tent overnight, at the expected temperature falling below minus 25 c is very serious. Believe us, it’s not easy, despite the excellent equipment, the responsibility for our lives when it’s the first time it’s very difficult. For this awakening in the middle of the taiga, in the snow and many wild animal trails, it’s a great experience, which i wish everyone. Thanks to Christopher Kusiaka the unofficial director of navigation and all the rest of our trips for the excellent conduct of us all over the stage and for the excellent cooperation and the joyful moments despite the occasional fingers of the fingers and legs, the feeling of a odpadającego nose that was not easy to find a way to Normal temperature. This is my most beautiful cycle adventure, each one is great, today is the first place, because apart from all the anturażu; the exotics, the climate, the excitement, the people that we have been talking to, mutual sympathy, generosity and hospitality are the greatest treasure of this expedition. Thank you very much all the cheering of our adventure. Zygmunt Piętak and Chris Kusiak.

🇬🇧 It is the end of #stage7. In 25 days, we cycled 1440 km in inclement Siberia, without one day of rest, in a great mood and good health. From Omsk, along the border with Kazakhstan on roads of different quality, rather less frequented with beautiful views among forests and steppes through Bagan, Karasuk, Czernovka, Proletarskij, Krasny Jar, Novosibirsk then along the huge river Ob, where most often in January is formed the official ice road car connecting both its shores, about 20 km long, then Bierdsk, Burmistrowo, Czingis, Shipunovo, Telemenka, Barnaul.

The frost accompanied us every day, the sun did not leave us almost at all. And making a decision to spread the tent overnight, with the expected temperature falling below minus 25 C is a very serious matter.

Please believe us, it is not easy, despite the excellent equipment, the responsibility for our lives, when it is done for the first time is very difficult.

For this wake up in the middle of the taiga, among the snow and many trails of wild animals is a sensational experience, which I wish everyone.

Thanks to Krzysia Kusiak, the unofficial navigational director of this and all our other excursions, for perfecting us throughout the entire stage and for excellent cooperation and joyful moments despite stiffened fingers and toes, feeling of a falling nose, for which it was not easy to find a way to return to normal temperature. This is my most beautiful bicycle adventure so far, each one is great, today it is in the first place, because besides the entire entoruage; exotica, climate, impressions, people we met, talked to, mutual sympathy, generosity and hospitality are the greatest treasure of this trip. Thank you very much to all those who support our adventure.
