    LONDON, June 1 (RIA Novosti's Alexander Smotrov) - The group of British and Russian motorcyclists has covered the most complicated leg of the route and is approaching the end of the Russian tour.

    It is led by British businessman Nick Lang, who celebrated his 53rd birthday on May 22 in Chita. In the same group are his friend John Raymond, Lang's business partner (Lang owns a tourist firm in Moscow) Russian Dmitri Paltsev and Alexei Nearanov also of Russia.

    RIA Novosti was told at the Red Square PR company, which provides consultative and information support for the rally, that the group has left Khabarovsk and is heading for Vladivostok.

    Motorcyclists were astonished by the majestic beauty of Lake Baikal. It has magnetic attraction, which I'm still unable to grasp, Nick Lang wrote in his diary.

    Not far from the city of Ulan Ude, a suspension in a Landrover suburban vehicle failed. Local mechanics came to help.

    In Buryatia travelers visited two Buddhist monasteries and Buryat museums.

    The most complex roadless leg Chita-Khabarovsk took eight days to pass.

    The city of Khabarovsk welcomed them with much greenery and fruit trees in blossom, Nick Lang noted.

    The rally is expected to be over in Vladivostok in a few days to come.

    The British-Russian motorcycle rally is a charity event. It has collected 10,000 pounds, destined to help ailing and orphaned children in Russia.
