Tusheti September Mountain Bike Tour 2015

September 15, 2015 - 11:47am -- admin

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.

The Agency of Protected Areas in The Republic of Georgia.

Many times in my previous blogs here you’ll have heard mention of the APA (The Agency for Protected Area’s) Georgia. I thought it time I should explain a little more about this agency and what the significance of them is, not only to mountain bikers in The Republic of Georgia, but also in the wider Caucuses area. And for that matter not just mountain bikers but anyone with a love for the great outdoors that would pay a visit to this forgotten jewel nestled in the Caucasus Mountains. So who are they? And what do they do?

Georiders - Mountain Biking in the Republic of Georgia

When I was travelling in India in 2009, I often dreamt of going back to Georgia and doing loads of mountain biking. I wanted to get involved in the local biking community and contribute. Back in Georgia, I was lucky to meet some local mountain bikers. I didn't expect to find them because I thought that the cycling wasn't very popular in Georgia and people seemed much keener on burning about in tinted windowed Mercedes and BMWs. How things have changed though! - at least for the burgeoning cycling and mountain biking community.

Curry, Dolma and Wilderness Mountain Biking in Armenia

November 15, 2009 - 8:44am -- admin_2
Tom emailed me last week to tell me he was going to follow an old man on a horse to a hot spring at 3000m. That sounded like my idea of fun so I decided to go to Yerevan and do it. I went to the bus station in Ortachala in Tbilisi at 9.30 am and cycled practically straight onto a Marshrutka (transit van minibus). This dispelled my fears of being able to take the bike in the cramped little bus. I was lucky this time whereas the previous time I had taken a Marshrutka, I had waited for 6 hours for the bus to leave because there were not enough passengers.
