This road (or better to say, this track) runs up along the valley of the Kizilkol River, from its emptying into the Malka River to its source near the Palnbashi Saddle. The place in the picture is called as Irakhiksirt Tract. Its surface is slowly ascending from East to West (from the left to the right). Somewhere at this place, there was a German military airfield during the WW II.
In the background you can see the both summits of the Mount Elbrus, eastern (covered with clouds, 5621 m above sea level) and western (5642 m).
GPS coordinates: 43.42796 Lat, 42.48123 Long, 2900 m

Une belle image estivale avec les montagnes enneigés et les nuages qui semblent s'y accrocher. On dirait que les cyclistes ont perdu leur chemin.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

один велик на четверых? ))) Отличный задний план, и композиция классная. Путешественники сверяют по карте свои планы. А один не интересуеься. Целый фоторассказ получился.

very funny title. I like the cyclists in the foreground, they add some life and interest to the composition. The clouds are a nice decoration too. Very well done,

che meraviglia questo paesaggio! Poco tempo fa facevo mountain bike e ricordo che era bellissimo quando ci fermavamo per una sosta, ma in un contesto del genere dev'essere proprio emozionante. La foto è meravigliosa, complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio

fantastic view of the Elbrus. I haven't seen the summits of it. From here it seems not so difficult to reach it. Nice scene from thre hiking. And what they decided? Brave men (you too!) to go biking so high.

With all my friendships and a very good WE,

Impressive summit of Mount Elbrus completely covered with snow and a nice contrast to the good sun pleasure cyclists that at one stage the hard way. Nice contrast in colors also with this high hill, whose green and white background underlines the blue sky. A fantastic panorama.TFS.
Enjoy the weekend. Best regards.

Хорошее утро Sergiy,
It seems you had a wonderful bicycle touring with nice companions. Luminous impression of Mt. Elbrus as highest mountain in Europe is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing a nice summer sunshine.
Best wishes, Hisashi

How is the experience to see such beauty live, when so much good in the photo.
Image quality really brought to perfection with a beautiful composition.
Nature is a wonderful,technique is excellent and the people are there to be mediators.
Yesterday I went to grade this your work but I am weak to holy so I first commented on the monastery.
Really fantastic job
Best regards dear friend

a beautiful and interesting composition with the majestic and famous mountain in the background and the colourful biker group. I like especially the contrast between the white mountain and the green meadows.
