General info

Pristine, rustic and varied: these are just a few of the keywords that can be used to describe the area around Tbilisi. Hikers and culinary fans already know the region, mountain bikers are still rather rarely seen, but this does not make the region any less interesting. The Caucasus offers sandy, dry and stony enduro trails, most of which meander along a mountain ridge forever. The extensive network of trails, however, must be reached by "bike climbing" or pushing - wide forest roads like in the Alps are not to be found here. On the way, however, you also get to know the local people, who always give you a warm welcome. It can happen that you are invited by a shepherd on the mountain for a meal or for a schnapps in the distillery.

Accommodation
& Catering

Upon arrival in the Old Town of Tbilisi, you will check into your rooms at the 3* hotel near the Old Town. This is an ideal starting point to explore the beautiful city center. Breakfast at the hotel is plentiful and very good. In the hinterland - both in Telavi and in Tuscheti Park simple and rustic but very cozy guesthouses welcome us. The food served is always delicious and sumptuous. Especially for the delicious stews and the preparation of sheep meat Georgia is known.

Catering

In the hotel in Tbilisi you will have a delicious breakfast and 1x lunch. In the guesthouse in Telavi half board is included. For the 4 nights you will be spoiled with full board.

Equipment

The most important equipment is, of course, a fully maintained and fully functional mountain bike with at least 140 mm travel. Safety equipment such as helmet, gloves, sunglasses and knee protectors is mandatory. It is important to bring enough spare parts, especially spare tires, since there is only in Tbilisi the possibility for the purchase of spare parts. On site there is the possibility to book a rental bike from Scott and Specialized. However, the recommendation is to bring your own bike.
