Hello it's me Dato. I am Georgia, i am first mountain bike riders in Georgia Tbilisi, i start to ride mtb bike in 1999 year, that time i was only me nobody did it before. I take some old soviet maps and check the routs where was point there only path for hiking and i decide to take there with my bike.
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.
We went off to Svaneti on a bike tour. Our new friend Vako driving in his suped up Delica 4x4 van and his bike trailer arrived we loaded up the bikes and drove over to the Hotel. On the way, I enjoyed sitting high up in this crazy vehicle with the tyres making a noise like the Batmobile.
Sitting down to write this blog it hits me that the last month has been quite eventful for Georiders.
