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? In the Caucasus Mountains in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. 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. But they were treated to the unparalleled hospitality of the Georgian people and the benign indifference of the elements on their quest to reach the magnificent Mount Kazbek.
Will Gadd and Gavin McClurg grab a thermal air lift towards Mt. Robson and then set flight for the Canada-US border.

A 35-day journey across rugged landscapes which is the longest air journey by a paraglider ever recorded.
