Рассказ по-русски

English narrative

11-Feb-2006 -- We arrived at the small town Bododuhiv (30 km from Kharkiv) on the Kiev-Kharkiv train on Saturday, at 08:45. On the street is frost, it is -10 and snowing. We quickly prepare our bikes, and head out on our way. We planned to pass from Bogoduhova to Poltava (around 150 km) on roads of regional quality, having visited on the way a point of crossings, 50N35E. We arrived near the place at 15:00, because we deviated from the route and for two and a half hours had to walk on foot in deep snow...

The Point was located 300 meters from the road, on the small elevation, not far from the village Kolontayev. Taking the necessary photos and eating the remainders of the chocolate, we leave for the rest of the way, since we overcame exactly half of the way, and from Poltava another 75 km remain. Toward the evening it became still cooler and it is very slippery. We arrived in Poltava at 21:30, and in an hour on the Poltava-Kiev train headed home.

Рассказ по-русски

11-Feb-2006 -- Мы прибыли в небольшой городок Бододухив (30км от Харькова) на поезде Киев-Харьков в субботу, в 08:45. На улице мороз -10, идет снег. Быстро собрав велосипеды, отправляемся в путь. Мы запланировали проехать от Богодухова до г.Полтавы (около 150км) по дорогам районного значения, посетив по пути точку пересечений 50N35E. На место прибыли около 15:00, так как по дороге отклонились от маршрута и два с половиной часа пришлось идти пешком по глубокому снегу...

Точка оказалась в 300 метрах от дороги, на небольшом возвышении, недалеко от села Колонтаев. Быстро отсняв необходимые кадры и перекусив остатками шоколада, отправляемся в дальнейший путь, так как мы преодолели ровно половину пути, и от Полтавы нас разделяет еще 75км. Под вечер стало еще прохладнее и очень скользко. В Полтаву прибыли к 21:30 и через час на поезде Полтава-Киев отправились домой.
