Albania - Where the Balkans meet the Mediterranean
Image supplied by Far and Away Cycling
Albania is a place that most people overlook. After having been there, I am not sure why that is. There is history. There are mountains. There is the Ionian coastline. There is little traffic. And the food in Albania is ALL organic. And it is inexpensive by European standards. The people are friendly. There really isn't anything not to like.So, we intend to take full advantage of it.
This tour starts in Tirana and then heads the long way around Lake Ohrid through Macedonia. We then cut South to the border with Greece riding in the valley below the the impressive snow covered Grommerz mountains before hitting the Ionian Coast and heading back north to Tirana.
We visit Unesco World Heritage Sites along the way. There also is substantial climbing. It takes some effort to get to Albania. It is not on the beaten path, but for me, that is actually a big attraction.
