Cycling Russia.

Cycling Russia.

I am attending the world cup in Russia this summer. And I am cycling around Russia at the same time.

If you come from Denmark like me, then you have not been able to travel around Russia without restrictions since 1917. But the FIFA world cup has changed that. With a couple of football tickets and a “Fan ID” I can travel around Russia without restrictions. So this is what I am doing right now. Cycling Russia as a westerner is finally possible.

Fan ID and tickets gives you free travel in Russia this summer.

I started in Moscow two weeks ago. I bought a mountainbike and then started cycling. I spend 7 days cycling to the city of Saransk, where I attended the game between Denmark and Peru yesterday. Fantastic game with thousands of incredibly nice Peruvian fans.

It was a very interesting ride through some parts of Russia, where I was mostly the first western tourist they had ever seen in the small local motels I was staying at.

My next stop is now Samara, where Denmark will be playing Australia in a few days Time. So for the next 3 days I will be cycling around southern Russia. I am right now in the city of Ulyanovsk, where Lenin was born. Hope to see many football fans in Samara from Denmark, Australia and the rest of the world. Let’s meet and party and celebrate the beautiful game  there.

Hope to see many football fans in Russia in the coming days.
