#1: The point of 46N 30E

(visited by Ilya Pavlov, Roman Varbanets and Sasha Krupitsa)

English narrative

Рассказ по-русски

11-Jun-2005 -- Наше путешествие на велосипедах в точку 46N 30E началось 11.06.05 в 7-00 от Затоки (пригород Одессы). Ехали вдоль моря по косе 10 км до поселка Курортное. Затем выехали на трассу и ехали по ней в сторону села Сергеевка. Когда GPS указал, что точка находится в 10 км строго на север, мы свернули с трассы и поехали вдоль полей по колеям от тракторов. Прямо на точке 46N 30E оказалась местная машинно-тракторная станция и коровник. Как оказалось, можно было к точке приехать значительно проще, если бы доехали до самого села Сергеевка, хотя так оказалось интереснее. По дороге было несколько падений, но обошлось без травм. Всего путь от Затоки до точки занял 70 км из них 30 по песку и полевым дорогам.

English narrative

11-Jun-2005 -- Our travel on bicycles to the point 46N 30E began 11.06.05 at 7:00 from Zatoka (a suburb of Odessa). We went along the sea on a beach 10 kms to the settlement Kurortnoe. Then we left on a highway and went on it in the direction of the village Sergeevka. When the GPS specified that the point was 10 kms directly north, we turned off the highway and went along a field in a tractor track. Directly on the point 46N 30E there was a local tractor station and cowshed. As it appeared, it would have been possible to arrive to the point much more easily if we had reached the village Sergeevka, but this looked more interesting. On the road there were some falling, but nobody was hurt. In all, the route from Zatoka to a point took 70 kms, of which 30 were on sand and field roads.
