In 2018 we scouted Altay and in 2019 we will do first tour over this area. From our point of view one of the best destinations in Russia for riding. Untouched nature, perfect roads with gravel segments, no cars, rivers, mountains. Its a round tour from Novosibirsk to the Altay region and back. In 2019 its a scout tour and price is lower than it will be in the future.
