Ready to celebrate, dance and drink like a fool

“In the cold and snow at the start of November I rolled into St.Petersburg. All of a sudden it was over. Yes I was exhausted but I was ready to celebrate, dance and drink like a fool, to have a drunken conversation with someone else than myself. St. Petersburg is a perfect city for all that and more. For many a night to come I’d close my eyes and go to sleep convinced the road was still rolling underneath me.”

Chris Herwig‘s bike ride from London to St. Petersburg is one of the more interesting, original cycle journeys I have read about. Have a look at his thoughtful photos and read his account of the ride here.
