Last summer we rented bikes in Montenegro, packed up two panniers each and hit the road, heading from Podgorica to Plav and Gusinje, then to Koplik (Albania), Shkodra, eventually to Tirana, and finally back up along the Albanian coast to where we first started.
Part Two covers our trip from Gusinje, Montenegro to Koplik, Albania. We knew it would be a tough day, but we didn't know it would be this tough. After 12 hours of steep inclines, rocky roads, dehydration and low morale, we finally got bailed out by an Albanian family headed to the other side of the pass and made it to Koplike, just 30 km from our original goal of Shkodra. Note to self: never assume there's one more grocery store higher up the mountain.
