No Roads, No Cars, Just Boats

City bikes in action: 3 best routes this summer

For everyone who has not yet had time to take advantage of bike sharing in the capital, we tell you: from April 27 in Moscow, anyone can register in the rental system and purchase a season ticket convenient for him. The tariffs are different: starting from 150 rubles per day for those who have come on vacation or want to test the operation of the system, ending with a serious decision to purchase a subscription for the entire season until October for 1300 rubles.

beginners need to know: 150 rubles or 1300 is the amount you pay for a subscription. It allows you to use the bike absolutely free for 30 minutes. Then you can park the bike at the nearest bike station and take it again or choose another one from the ones in the parking lot. If you have ventured on a long trip or are very late, then it is not necessary to park your bike every 30 minutes, but you should remember that for every half hour over the stated time you will have to pay 50 rubles.

Together with the editorial staff, we went to an exciting travel to the most visited places in the capital and made up several popular routes this summer.

Route 1. Cultural and tourist: we open the city in a new way

We start from Arbat (opposite or near the hotel Prague, there are four available stations in this area) - we go down Znamenka street (towards the Cathedral of Christ the Savior) - we cross the road towards the Kremlin and get to the bridge, from which a stunning view of the Moskva River and Red Square opens up - we turn around and cross the road towards Red Square - visit Red Square and GUM, take the most important tourist selfies - from GUM we go down a little lower along the main alley and we get to the Central Children's World, where almost at any time of the day and in any weather you can visit the observation deck on the roof of the building absolutely free of charge. View stations location in detail.

Suitable for: the route turned out to be easy and very touristy. In one place we have collected all the most visited places in the center area. So think about it, maybe a friend came to your vacation or is there a reason to get to know your favorite city better?

By time: the whole route took a little more than 30 minutes. If you spend less time on selfies and broadcasts, then you can meet in half an hour.

Where to park your bike at the end: In order to park your bike right near the Central Children's World, you will need go to it through the underground passage, there are other parking lots in this area near the Lubyanka metro station.

Lifehack: if you have chosen Arbat as your starting point and there is no free bike in the cherished parking lot, do not worry! Walking distance from every bike station in this paradisethere are at least three more similar ones. The only inconvenience will be the need to cross the underpass by bicycle.

Route 2. Active: we train with pleasure

We took the bike in the Red October area - returned to the bridge (follow in the direction of the Kremlin) - turned left at the exit from the bridge - got on a wide pedestrian pavement - reached Muzeon - ended up in the Park Gorky - after which we drove to the Oktyabrskaya metro station and left the bicycles at the station near MISiS on Leninsky Prospekt.

Who will suit: the whole route looks like an intense training, because there are so many places, in which you have to drive up the hill or go down from it. For fans of extreme ascents, we suggest changing your path a little and instead of the road to the metro, choose the ascent to Neskuchny Sad. In this case, you can park your bike near the Leninsky Prospekt metro station.

Lifehack: Did the trip take a lot of energy? Take your time to quench your thirst with sweet soda! Surprisingly, the perfect drink to replenish your carbohydrate stores is ... non-alcoholic beer. It will help to quench your thirst and refresh during a difficult climb or a difficult descent. By the way, you shouldn't worry about the figure! For example, one can of non-alcoholic beer Baltika 0 (volume - 0.45 ml) contains only 158 kilocalories. But you still have to drive your bike to the parking lot, remember? This means that on this trip it will be possible to take the maximum ... we are about fun and impressions, not extra pounds!

Route number 3. Friday: bar mode

We take a bicycle in the area of ​​Patriarch's Ponds (the bicycle parking is located in a fenced area near the pond itself. Landmark - opposite the Gorod-Sad store) - and we leave for the most desperate trip this weekend - to begin with, we will make a circle of honor around the ponds themselves and drop into any of the bars that we meet along the way - then we move towards the Mayakovskaya metro station - we look along the way into cozy courtyards (in one of which you can find that very bad apartment from the Master and Margarita Bulgakov) - we arrive to the Mayakovskaya metro station - we park the bike for a short time - ride a swing in the very center of the capital - turn right and drive along Tverskaya in the direction of the center - on the way we look at all the bars and cafes that we liked, - we park, just short of reaching Telegraph and stay to dance all night long in Mumiy Troll Music Bar or To Da Syo cafe (we are guided by the signs).

Important! The editors in no way propagandize indriving a bicycle while intoxicated. Remember that great is also transport and when you get behind the wheel you take on a great responsibility.

Suitable for: those who feel confident behind the wheel bike, knows Moscow well and likes to spend the weekend actively.

By time: the whole trip took us about 120 minutes, we did not rent or change bicycles, so we had to pay 150 rubles for such a pleasure. But, in fairness, along the way there were bike stations where you can easily park your bike.

Where to park your bike at the end: choose any parking lot that you meet on the way to Tverskaya ... Remember that on Friday evening the nearest and desired one may be busy, so check the station's workload in advance through the velobike app on your phone.

Life hack: use a special mount to attach bike on the street, and also enter your pin code again and thereby block the bike. Now you can have fun and not worry about your two-wheeled friend!
