This year we introduced new tour along the Caucasus Mountains, its a one-way ride from Sochi to Vladikavkaz (and vice versa). Very nice, interesting and picturesque route.
One of the first groups that did that tour was a group of friends from Saint-Petersburg, some used own bikes, several rented our bikes. Guys came with their own support vehicle, so two RMT guides were on the motorcycles.
This year weather is very abnormal. Usually in May in the Caucasus Region its already +20 degrees and very comfortable weather for riding. But during first half of May arctic cyclone came to that region and it was +7-10 during the day and during nights in the mountains, especially at the 2000 meters attitude and higher there was even snow.
Well, we are made not of sugar and rain or snow cant stop us from riding, just strange weather, not usual for that time of the year. Global climate crisis...
Anyway guys had a great ride, it was challenging and fun, but memorable and exciting. Well done boys!
Below are some photos from that tour, we hope in the coming decades no more such surprises from weather in May..))
