It's the second biggest country of Europe. Still a lot of Europeans don't really know it. And western cycle tourists don't visit it often.This summer we discovered it by bicycle! Here is what we found in Ukraine. Have fun!

MTB tour of the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains
by I.P., tour started August 2011, submitted 30 April 2011
Europe: Ukraine

A mountain bike ride along and across the Ukrainian part of the Carpathian Mountains from the Ukraine-Poland border to the Ukraine-Romania border. The route is approximately 500 km long. It is by no means an ''extreme'' tour (most probably it can be described as ''moderately challenging''). The main purpose of this ride is to map out and document a through-trail that uses forest roads, jeep roads, local dirt roads, and low-traffic local roads where other options are not available.

Ukraine 2002 - Riding in Crimea and along the Dniepr
by Peter Wulff, tour started May 2002
Europe: Ukraine

Having in 2001 experienced how nice a country Ukraine in many ways is, I returned for more riding in 2002. During about two months I rode 3927 km in Crimea and along the Dniepr river. I arrived in Ukraine by boat from Istanbul in Turkey and left the same way. Since last time I was in Ukraine things have improved; better food (now one can have Ukrainian made cornflakes and musli), the cities also look better. Surely Kuchma is doing something right. One thing hadn't improved though - the horrible mentality in most state-owned hotels. Luckily there are several types of alternative accommodation. Ukraine is cheap and during two months I spent less than 1000 USD. On the whole I enjoyed the riding as much as the previous year, not that Ukraine is always pleasant, but it is rarely boring. There is something special about riding in Ukraine, the contrasts, it's socialist history, the absence of western tourists, the light, the Ukrainians, well, I can't exactly put my finger on it but nice it is.

The itinerary/places where I slept was as follows; Feodosia - Ribatche - Jalta - Feodosia - (Kerch) - Feodosia - Strelkovoe - Dzankoj - Feodosia - Otradnoe - Feodosia - Kurortnoe - Sudak - Jalta - Lyubimovka - Pribreshnoe - Mirnyj - Meshvodnoe - Khorli - Lazurnoe - Golaja Pristan - Kahovka - Kamjanka Dnieprovka - Nikopol - Dniepro Dzerzhinsk - Komsomolsk - Chigirin - Cherkasy - Prokhorovka - Kedina Gora - Khorol - Komsomolsk - Dniepro Dzerzhinsk - Novomoskovsk - Vasilivka - Strelkovoe - Feodosia - Belogorsk - Bakshisaray - Inkerman.
