From Volgograd to Novosibirsk
Hey everybody,

I wanted to ask for some ideas, advices or propositions about a part of my 2013-trip :-)

I'm planning a trip next year from Belgium to Mongolia and back.
To work more easy, I've devided my trip in some parts:
1. Belgium through Europe till Montenegro and Albania
2. Albania to Georgia
3. Georgia to Mongolia
4. Mongolia
5. Back home over Russia

And it's with this thirth part that I have some troubles. I will go from Georgia first to Volgograd (and stay there some days) and than I want to find a good or interesting way to reach Novosibirsk (from N'birsk till Mongolian border is a very great way through the Atlay Mountains, so there is no problem).

Does anyone has some advices or propositions how I can make those 4.000km between V'grad and N'birsk more interesting because (as far as my information gets) this is not such an attractive road, not much to see.
I also thought about taking a train to "overbridge" those kilometers but I cant find any good info about getting the bike on a russian train. Can someone help me with this ?

thanks a lot and cheers, Erik

What is interesting for you?

What kind of riding do you like to do?

If you like off road trails I know very interesting trails all the way from Volgograd to mongolian border.

Hey mates :-)
Sure...even that I'm not that off-road specialist, I would be very interested to have some information about the trails you're talking about :-)
Thanks already !
