Adventure into Georgia wild Kazbegi Mountain Area
“Mountain biking in Georgia is no joke — this is one of the world’s wildest mountain ranges.”
ADVENTURE FILMMAKER Joey Schusler, Bike magazine editor Brice Minnigh, photographer Ross Measures and mountain man Sam Seward spent half of June 2015 exploring the crown jewels of the Georgian High Caucasus, one of the world’s wildest mountain ranges. With nothing but their mountain bikes and enough food to survive for 10 days, they embarked on a mountain biking adventure where they “overcame countless obstacles and experienced some of the most spectacular scenery and trails they had ever encountered.”
What happens when four like-minded adventurers head into one of the world’s wildest mountain ranges with nothing but their mountain bikes and enough food to survive for 10 days?
The answer? What doesn’t happen? Terrifying lightning storms. Raging-river crossings. Snow-covered glacial pass traverses. Mind-melting descents. Constant fights with vicious dogs. Tense encounters with over-zealous border-patrol guards.
