I have a bike, and I like to ride it. I also like looking at maps, and I thought, is it possible to go round a large field on a bike so that the trajectory of my route repeats the shape of the Russian border? Now I don’t remember why, but I decided I would ride for at least two hours, and therefore the field for my experiment had to be really big. Perhaps I was given this idea by the vast size of Russia itself, or perhaps I wanted to achieve a clearer outline with the opportunity to include all the cartographic nuances on the route. So I chose what seemed like a good place (on the satellite picture it seemed like a big flat field) and got on the bike. When I got there it turned out to be a military training ground. But I had no choice: I turned on the camera and set off. The beginning of my route happened to be a road, but I was unable to turn off it. Tall grass, bushes and trees grew by the roadside. It was impossible to say what lay behind them and what would happen if I veered off the road. I just went straight on, in the hope I wouldn’t meet anyone. I often had to dismount and make my way round puddles on the roadside, through dense vegetation. What had seemed like perfect weather proved to be too hot. Occasionally I stopped to rest and explore the area. After a while I returned to the point where I began. The circuit was complete, but the shape turned out differently.
