Questions to are answered by Sergey Kozinov

– How important is it to distribute roles in the campaign and are there any participants who from year to year play the usual roles in your orchestra?

In our group, each participant can play almost any role in the campaign. Those guys who have been traveling for more than a year prefer to choose something they like, so the distribution of roles is quick and painless :)

– Bicycles in the mountains, on passes, in the snow are still exotic, even if we are trying to get used to it. What is the idea of ​​such trips for you?

Yes, the temperature contrast in this cycle trip was a success) On the plains of Kazakhstan, the sun burned us, and on the pass – a blizzard. Due to the large mileage, cycle trips combine plains and mountains, passes and valleys. Similar temperature differences were in the Andes last year, when there were severe frosts on the plateau (4800m +) at night.
