Ride
 
If sharing wide sidewalks with pedestrians doesn’t sound like an option to you, you can ride along one of the picturesque bicycle paths of Minsk:
 
  The Main Cycling Track   passes through almost the whole city by the water (find the map here). It is about 26 km long and you’ll be surrounded by greenery and nice views almost all the time.
 
  The path around Cnianskaje Water Reservoir   (about 8 km long) is a beautiful route pretty far from the city center.
 
  Choose  the path in Lošycki Park   for a calm and relaxed bicycle walk. It goes through a mysterious and loved by locals park in the southern part of the city.
 
 


 
Repair
 
In case something unfortunate happens to your bicycle, head for Garage 38 (Praspiekt Niezaležnasci 44b, garage 38).​ It is a free DIY bike workshop in the city center founded by Minsk Cycling Community. Their volunteers will help you to repair or customize your bike.
