Much esteemed guests from Boulder, Colorado who enjoyed our Svaneti tour last year have been dabbling in some Georgian cooking.
The valiant project recreated the world famous ‘Georgian Snickers’ - ‘Churchela’ made from walnut pieces on a string generously dipped in Wine Molasses.
The champion sports food delicacy, rumoured to hold more energy pound for pound than even the most high tech sports supplement lasts for an entire season in the guiding backpack.
Back in September we went on a bike tour in Svaneti with a group of great guys from Dubai - Paul, Serge, Ken and Eugine. Our friends arrived early in the morning about 2 o'clock. We picked them up from the airport with the bike bags and headed back into the city centre to the bike shop. We unloaded and assembled the bikes.
We made a trip to Tusheti last week with some six guys from Israel. After a late flight in we hit the road with the 4x4 cars loaded with the trailers with the bikes. On the way we picked up lunch, changed money, and headed for the Gombori pass, Kaxheti and the roads to the high mountains of the Caucasus.
Our guests were experienced bikers. In Israel mountain cycling is very popular. There are many trails and on the weekend the trails can be very busy.
The new mountain bike trail in Gudauri opened on the 9th August with over 50 riders turning out to take advantage of the free gondola up lift and enjoy the newest bike trail to open in Georgia.
