All roads along your trip have no big traffic. Roads with big traffic are:
1. Saint-Petersburg - Veliky Novgorod - Moscow (out of your route)
2. Saint-Petersburg - Pskov - Opochka - Pustoshka - Nevel'
3. Moscow - Pustoshka - Burachki - Riga
Avoid them by all means. Use any different roads.

South part of RUS-EST border (South from Peipsi lake) has two crossing points for all citizenships:
1. Kunichina Gora
2. Shumilkino
They work 24h, and open for pedestrians and cyclists.

RUS-LV border has only three crossing points for all citizenships:
1. Ludonka
2. Ubylinka
3. Burachki
They work 24h, and open for pedestrians and cyclists too.

Cycling along Russia in winter is possible, and more or less popular. But, NB! you SHOULD use huge lights and many cat's-eye reflectors and etc. One mounth ago Japanese cyclist Haruhisa Watanabe was hit and died on the North of European Russia. The accident was at night, and Watanabe was without lights and cat's-eyes.

Thank you for your reply. We will be cycling in summer and I imagine a big light is unnecessary.

For me the best map of Pskov oblast is there.

I don't know where is the best maps of Veliky Novgorod oblast; approximate map is there.
The most popular online-shop for books and maps in Russia is Ozon.ru (sending abroad too). Request for Novgorodskaya oblast maps is here. Pskov oblast is here.

The figure of merit of quality of maps is, for example, being of "border crossing point Golysheva" here - on the road Krasnogorodsk(RUS)-Karsava(LV). This customs point doesn't exist, so it must be not marked in good map.


Sincerely yours, Mr. Repovesi
