    With maps in short supply, perhaps four more pictures, of critical turns or road entries would be of better value to the readers thinking about this trip. Also note on the maps in the article any bike shops, hardware stores or places to eat. Also suggest any items you took that proved useful, particularly if it is not available.

    Hi! Just found this site as I am considering a Black Sea/Georgia/Armenia trip at some point in the future. Your route looks great and I was wondering if you could recommend the best cycle friendly brand and source of Armenian and Georgian maps to plan similar off-highway routes. Thanks!

      There aren’t any. That’s why we’re making new ones 😉

      Seriously, the best available maps are a combination of OpenStreetMap based digital ones, old Soviet military maps (via the Android app), and Google Earth satellite. Google Maps is of limited use. And you have to be prepared for all of the above to be inaccurate, especially in remoter regions. All part of the challenge at this point in time.

      What kind of trip are you planning? We’re putting together a prototype bikepacking route on dirt roads at the mo. It’ll be published in April/May if you fancy having a go at it this year…
