A little bit definately, but I'm not sure how much, because we couldn't saw how steep that trail was afterwards because of clouds. But riding on (dry) riverbed covered with rocks isn't easy also on lighter bikes.

Thanks, Randel. I've followed your gps track on Google earth and, in fact, I don't think you could have progressed much more. I hope to ride there, maybe this summer, and check it by myself.

Fantastic! Thanks for sharing the journey with us that many will never see it but by your pictures and story.

Great stuff, good reading this RR, that first mountain pass sorta reminds me of a gravel version of the stelvio pass
Nice to see a less explored part of europe

Thanks for the nice RR. Can't wait to see more...
We'll be there in 3 weeks. Interesting to see how Georgia looks like.
If you have useful info, adresses, unmissable places... please share
Thanks.
Ben

Sorry about my slow progress, I just can't find time to write my report faster. I will do an overview about places we found worth visiting in the end of this report.
3 weeks in Georgia sounds great, we only had 9 days and missed many places. I wish you have a great trip!

Hi Randel. No, we won't stay there 3 weeks (we wish we could!). We'll be there in 3 weeks! And we may stay 5 days in Georgia, depending if we can cross the russian border or not. I leave Belgium in 1 week, so, if you have time, I'm really interested in getting some interesting info/adresses/places/... Thanks in advance.
