MThA Sports and Tourism Club organised a bike ride

On September 27, a World Tourism Day, members of the MThA Sports and Tourism club took a bike ride to the spring “Gremyachiy Klyuch” also called "Malinniki" which is a well-known place for pilgrimage.

The spring is renowned as the highest natural waterfall in the Moscow region. According to the life of St. Sergius of Radonezh, it was revealed after a prayer when the saint stopped for a rest at that place on his way to Kirzhach. Now there is a small church and a font.

The 40 km route over fields and forest took 9 hours. Getting safely to the place, the riders refreshed themselves in a spring and had a picnic on their way back.
