The following morning after a Georgian feast, plenty of wine and a good night’s rest, some of the group took a walk up to the ancient fortifications before we set off to our next start point. This is where we’d planned to follow a route along a ridge at 3000 meters before dropping into the next valley. We had woken that morning to heavy rain and low clouds, taking a look at the ridge which should have been visible from Omalo we could see it was completely covered in cloud and mist, it didn’t look promising.
Planning this tour with our guests and knowing they were very experienced, highly skilled and in great shape we had decided to take in a few adventurous trails up in the mountains that would challenge even the pro mountain bikers visiting The Republic of Georgia.
“Can you describe the riding (and be honest) in Georgia?” came the question from a well-known Mountain bike magazine editor this week when we invited them over to The Republic of Georgia. Good question, can I?
