Day 0: Preparation and departure
Today I want to tell you about my plans for the May 2013 bike trip.
There are many ancient castles in Ukraine, but I saw almost none of them and decided, as a training before a bike trip to Turkey, to go to Western Ukraine, where there are the most castles.
The bike ride was registered in the Zaporizhia IWC as 1 class.

This is my first hike, which I want to describe online as I go, let's see what happens.
In the morning I took a picture of the beauty on the bridges across the Dnieper. I came to work with a bike already fully equipped, the employees checked it out :)
I did not work much in the office and went to the railway station. We agreed with the participants that we would meet at 12:45 at the Zaporozhye-1 railway station, I was very worried that someone from the group would be late, in the end I was the only one late :)
On boarding the car, the conductor asked what kind of demonstration we had with bicycles :) Probably, this was very unusual for her, they explained that we were going on a bike tour in Western Ukraine.
It was not the first time for almost everyone in the group to ride bikes, so we quickly plunged in and played monopoly and munchkin until nightfall. Grisha turned out to be a cheater in Munchkin, and Sasha - in Monopoly) tomorrow we arrive in Lviv around noon. Went to bed early.
I slept very well on the train) It's a whole day trip, so you can have time to relax before the trip.
