Bike Aways

Georgia

This is still in draft form but we’re petty close to nailing down our Georgeous Georgia itinerary. The thing is there is so much to see and quite a few different ways to take all this in and we are researching the smoothest least transferrey way to do it.

This is  going to be our main trip, designed to be accessible to all levels of riders (hardcore and easy going – we can accomodate both).

The names may mean nothing to you at the moment, but trust us, this route is the bomb. It doesn’t include wine country but thats something relatively easy to do as an add on yourself at the end of the trip from Tsbilisi (the capital), or you can join us on the first two days of our Tusheti itinerary, where we will visit wine country on the way to this much more hard core mountain biking destination.
