    Hi all,

    I never ever really post much on here but i lurk rather a lot,
    However about a month ago my brother left to go cycling to Russia, he has just got into Russia and has been writing up a blog as he goes. I meant to post the link up last month but completely forgot. There is a fair amount of pictures and he has typed up all of his various encounters along the way, as much as i hate to say this he has done an exceptional job on it!

    Enjoy!

    A good and interesting read but I nearly closed the window straight away when it started autoplaying music at me :(

    Cool reading so far, Out of interest are you the brother who just got into CapGemini? Telford by any chance?

    I was going to pass this blog to a friend who works there as he's a mad cyclist too.

    Awesome loving the pictures. The food choice looks pretty tribal protein followed by more protein.

    I have to agree on the music, im not a big fan but it does fit the scene quite well i must say!
    And SpookyWillow, yes thats me just got accepted after the assessments on Tuesday, and yeah it is the Telford branch! Small world!

    In terms of what he eats from what i've gathered its pretty much whatever he can get his hands on at the supermarkets!
