Chernobyl Trip Hoax

Chernobyl Trip Hoax

An article(1) published today in the LA Times (requires registration) finds that the tale of the fearless 'Elena,' who claimed to ride through the desolate and radioactive zone of Chernobyl alone on her motorcycle (as depicted on her website kiddofspeed.com(2)) is actually a fictionalized account.
'Elena' has been identified as a woman who took a tour organized by a Kiev travel agency, and her party traveled by car, "as closed motor vehicles are the rule in the zone, where radiation levels are thousands of times normal in places," the article informed.
