🇵🇱 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.
🇬🇧Like the rivers Irtysh and Om meet in the Omsk city, so did stage six with stage seven. For us this is the end of an amazing, tiring and fruitful journey, for Zygmunt and Krzysztof this is just the beginning😁 Siberia is beautiful, hopefully it will be friendly fire the next stage of #BikeJamboree!
We would like to thank organizers for starting such an interesting project – without them we would probably not dare to come here 😄 We also want to thank those who made our journey safe and comfortable: @Kross, @Crosso, @Pajak, @Primus, @Regatta, @Medyk, @ZHP and @ZHR.
It’s time to say goodbye – Mantas Gmitrzuk, Ania Rupniewska, Łukasz Tomala and Andrzej Przybylski. Be prepared! Будь готов!
🇬🇧We’ve been amazed by Omsk for a couple of days and this is mainly because of the people we happened to get to know here. We met Lubov Nesetrova the chairwoman of the Centre of Polish Culture and Education “Polonez” in Omsk. Tatiana and Svietlana who are members of this organization were or guides in the city, took us to delicious restaurants 😋 and taught us how to play a Russian boarding game.
We also talked about #BikeJamboree in Caritas, where children spend their winter holidays. We really like Siberia 😄
🇬🇧We’ve just started! How spectacular it was!🚲
In Kostanay we were staying at the parish of the Assumption of the Blessef Virgin Mary. We were hosted by the polish missionaries: priest Sławomir and sisters Joachima and Goretti. What they do is impressive! They build catholic community, help not only local people but also such vagabonds like us.
We couldn’t have thought of a better farewell comitee. Thank you! 😁😍
About #BikeJamboree Project. #ScoutsPoland
“Bicycle relay that has never been done so far. Around the World! Two years ago, when we organized the Bike Jamboree 2015, we travelled from Poland to Japan to finally come to World Scout Jamboree in Japan. We liked it, so now we are moving on. We will start at 27 May, 2017, to reach World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia by cycling for the next 2,5 years (July / August 2019) and then return to Poland. From Gdansk to Gdansk: 35 thousand kilometres, 34 phases/stages, 21 countries. Through the most beautiful areas of the northern hemisphere. Why? To promote Poland, to experience adventure, and to show how important scouting can be in the today’s world. However, we do not invite only scouts to participate in our expedition. Adventure is waiting for everyone!”
“We want to show that Scouting is an extremely interesting social movement involving young, ambitious and unconventional people. People who can work together independently of the political situation in the world. They do not know prejudice against other nations or religions. They disagree with the world’s widespread inequalities and actively work towards positive changes in their environment. Scouting is the elite of today’s youth.”
This is a sample of some of their photos during first stages of #BikeJamboree. Poland to Kazakhstan.
