I'm good for this, I've wanted to go to Russia for many years so if funds allow I'll spend a bit more time there. Have to dig out my old Russian text books!

Would it help if the meeting point was changed to 55°45′01″N 37°34′37″E (British Embassy) @FJRPilot ?

So we, as members of IBA UK are only allowed to organise an RTE in the UK? That's rather limiting for LD riders isn't it.
Of course you/we are Dave, this sounds exciting. Just politely pointing out this has ended up under the UK RTE section and not the Euro one. Wouldn't want potential riders to miss out that's all. :oops:

Perhaps we should now have 'World R2E' section or is Moscow Europe or Asia?

I guess it is under the UK R2E's as one of our own is organising it and of course throwing a welcome to anyone who'd like to join in.

Well that serves me right for thinking out loud :oops:

If you put a section for World RTEs John will go suggesting one in the middle of the desert :D

Hi bob, im up for this as a 1+1.
Im not rich by any sense of the word, would anyone else be interested in a savings club?
I.e for arguments sake £50 a month, (obviously thats open to discussion). Then come june next year you can ride to moscow and enjoy life to the full, with money for servicing/tyres to boot.

I think we probably need further & better particulars Mark. Are you suggesting some sort of shared bank account?

I also am not rich and will have to work at affording the trip and I suspect that you and I do not constitute the entirety of the "not rich" subset of the IBA.

I'm still working on a itinerary but as I want to do a few side-trips, St Petersburg and Tallinn among others, I'm estimating a budget of at least £1200 so saving has started in earnest. This may be my only LD ride in 2017.
