The quiet highway west out of Baku city. First hills in the distance.
The first decent climb after a few months off of the saddle.
The 'badlands' turned more fertile
Moody rock formations
The start of day two, and a nice view of the distant high Caucasus.
The mountain and river side village of Lahic.
Melting snow means silt filled rivers as this time of year.
A speedy decent on the other side of the valley, and then a climb to here.
Getting closer, but never having to climb then. I followed the edge of the mountains for a few days.
Lovely place to ride, cool and quiet.
Calm in Azerbaijan.
The resort and our home for the night, in Kis
A nice place to unwind.
Not sure why I am a so serious in photos- must be an effect of living in Central Asia.
Caravansary in Sheki
Typical Azeri village street
A the gear, no idea.
My support leaves to head back to Baku, before flying to Tbilisi.
Family outing across the border to Lagodekhi, Georgia
The 'Nye-iz-nia' center. The lady had no idea what Tourist Information was. Nor did she know the 'free Wi-fi' code I badly needed.
So, none the wiser, I pushed onto Tbilisi making this last day over 120km.
Mountain top village of Sighnaghi
And one more. It was nice here.
View from our hotel balcony in Tbilisi
Strange clock near a Theatre
View of Tbilisi from the top of the funicular
Wine cellar tasting session, during which we had the whole bottle.
Whoops. Pheasant's Tears. A very nice drop
