In memory of the significant date, the participants in two groups – “avant-gardes” in total drove more than 1000 kilometers around Moscow.

Acting Director of the Military-Patriotic Park of Culture and Leisure of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation “Patriot” Vladimir Gopko took part in the ceremonial finish of the bike ride.

“I am amazed at your courage with which you walked this difficult and difficult route and arrived at the park. Of course, this courage is the legacy of those who stood here in 1941, ”said Vladimir Gopko.

Two vanguards of cyclists with the flags of Russian Railways and the Russian Trade Union of Railway Workers and Transport Builders (ROSPROFZHEL) traveled around Moscow along two routes from the North (Kolomna – Aleksandrov – Dmitrov – Park Patriot) and the South (Kolomna – Tula – Kaluga – Park Patriot), symbolizing the ring, part of which was built precisely during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.

Today, of course, everyone knows that victory near Moscow would not have been possible without the heroic labor of the railway workers, who, working without sleep and rest, ensured the timely transfer of troops to Moscow, the export of strategically important enterprises and the working population to the rear.

On the night before the finish, the participants were accommodated in compartment and sleeping cars, had breakfast in the Army platform cafe. This is a new cafe housed in a retro train. Here anyone can take a seat at the tables of a real restaurant car, which until recently worked as part of passenger trains, or sit in the fresh air under the canopy of a platform next to a historic train, driven by a real steam locomotive.

The start of the bike ride took place on September 21 in the city of Kolomna from the territory of the Research and Development Institute of Rolling Stock. Despite the bad weather, wind and heavy rainfall, railway cyclists rode around Moscow in two beams – a northern beam with solemn events in the cities of Alexandrov and Dmitrov, and a southern beam with solemn events in the cities of Tula and Kaluga. A ring has closed in the Patriot park, which symbolizes not only the memory of the feat of our grandfathers, but also the modern attitude and love for the capital of Russia – the city of Moscow.
