GEORGIA

Ride at the crossroads of continents in the Caucasus Mountains

A relatively unknown cycling destination, we’d be looking to take you off the beaten track - if there was one. We’ll mix newly paved tarmac, broken military roads and hard packed gravel tracks as we climb through an unspoiled landscape of remarkable beauty and diversity. But there’s more to Georgia than that, with a fascinating combination of cultural influences from all directions. Expect outstanding cuisine and hospitality, particularly in the booming capital of Tbilisi. A journey into the unknown not to be missed.
