Bike Rides Through Chernobyl

This site is currently the hot topic on quite a few blogs and news sites. Elena, an avid biker, has dared to go into the “Dead Zone” around Chernobyl and document her rides on its deserted roads.

Until now, I hadn’t really known much about the Chernobyl disaster and this has really brought forward what effect it had on the people, the surrounding area and the world’s view of nuclear technology. A whole town devoid of life, empty roads, death everywhere. Something you wouldn’t think existed outside movies and sci-fi novels.

Now considering that I don’t live too far from a nuclear reactor myself, I have another reason to move somewhere else. Still, I think the world learnt something from Chernobyl and hopefully, we won’t see anything like it ever again.
