near Velikiy Novgorod, Новгородская область (Россия)
The route is quite easy as it passes along smooth and flat roads. There are several sections where the road is not perfect and dirty and you can happily avoid them: a) the second turn to the lake near Sergovo (you can enjoy the lake views at the first point in Yerunovo), b) the eastern road from Sergovo to the mill (the western road is smoth, they make two sides of triangle as you can see on the map), c) the last part of the road to St. Michael Klopsky Monastery.
Note that if you follow the route clockwise you will have to go from the highway to the Yuriev Monastery against traffic as there is one-way traffic. But this road is shared with pedestrians so I had no problems with riding bike.
The only wooden mill in Novgorod region that is situated in its original place. Its all grinding mechanisms are in good condition and visitors have an amazing chance to see them closer and learn about the mill working principles.
Note that you should book an excursion beforehand.
