CORE Presentation - One Bicycle vs. the Russian Wilderness

One of the world's last great unbroken wilderness regions, the Russian taiga stretches nearly 10,000 km from the Pacific Ocean to the historic cities and palaces of Eastern Europe. Until recently the only way across this vast boreal forest was by train: the fabled Trans-Siberian Railway. But with the opening of a new road, it is now possible to traverse this landscape by car, or like Sean Nichols did in 2016, by bicycle. Join Sean as he recounts his adventures crossing the forests, plains, mountains and lakes of Russia from Siberia to Tatarstan and places in between. And along the way discover how to deal with the obstacles such a journey presents – from flat tires to encounters with wildlife, mosquitoes and perhaps the biggest obstacle of all: the formidable Russian Bureaucracy! The meeting will also include club announcements, updates and a short slideshow from the Name that Flower Contest. Winner to be announced.
