Abstract: For the plane regions $ {\Omega _1} = \left\{ {\left\vert z \right\vert < R,z \ne 0,1} \right\}$ with $ R > 1$, and $ {\Omega _2} = {\mathbf{C}} \setminus \left\{ {0,1,p} \right\}$ with $ \left\vert p \right\vert = R > 1$, we describe, as $ R \to \infty $, the hyperbolic lengths of the geodesies surrounding 0 and 1. Upper and lower bounds for the lengths are also stated, and these results are used to obtain inequalities, which are precise in a certain sense, for the length of the geodesic surrounding 0 and 1 in an arbitrary plane region $ \Omega $ satisfying $ {\Omega _1} \subset \Omega \subset {\Omega _2}$.
