After leaving Cappadocia and passing the Black Sea coast Marc and his “Beyond” bike now entered Georgia. He just cycled to Ushguli, the highest permanently inhabited place in europe (2100m), crossed the Zagar pass (2623m, 7degree) and could only manage about 30-40km a day (even including downhill) due to real bad tracks, heavy rain, snow, landslides and lots of river crossings… due to the current thunderstorm that invaded Tiflis he is currently awaiting to travel into Georgia’s capital. Watch the pics he took on his way and stay tuned!

The word ‘epic’ is often over used, but when it comes from our friend Marc Maurer, who last year rode from Cologne to the Caspian Sea and decided rather than to fly home, he’d just turn around and ride back… we had to pay attention.
Marc’s journey is fully justified as ‘epic’ he left mid May headed for Istanbul, Turkey and the Caucasus Mountains. His journey will total 4000km, passing through culturally rich regions of Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and finally Iran.
His daily companion will be our prototype ‘Beyond’, a bike built and designed to be capable for virtually any adventure you have in mind. Feel free to follow and to share Marc’s project in case you’re into bike travelling, foreign countries or stunning photos.
