Mountain Biking in Iran
Mountain Biking in Iran is a new activity for adventure travelers who come from all around the world. Iran is really an ideal mountain biking destination, but, unfortunately, it is not yet covered in the press and media. There are many Mountain Biking clubs, and over the past ten years, this challenge has appealed to a lot of women.
Mountain Biking is not a popular activity as it is in some countries in Europe; there is not an exclusive cycling path in the streets of Iran. The mountains offer a lot of good trails and single-track roads which are proper for MTB freaks. There are a lot of dirt roads in our deserts between the villages and also single trails between oases which are perfect for this sport. We also have very decent roads with good quality asphalt in most parts of the country. As Iran is a mountainous country the roads are not flat so you will experience a lot of ascent and descent in most of them. We have created a wide range of mountain biking Iran tours from the Persian Gulf to the Caspian Sea.
Iranian Coast to Coast by Bicycle tour is one of the good examples of our various mountain biking tours. If you check the CYCLING tour tab below the Iran Tours menus in the Adventure Iran website, you will find our Mountain Biking tours from January to December.
In spring, we conduct most of our mountain biking tours in central Iran, where there are mountains and deserts. In summertime, we send our adventurous riders to the high peaks and sometimes to the Caspian Sea.
Our mountain biking tours in autumn could take place in various regions. Autumn is a desert season. Desert of Iran “Dasht-e Kavir and Lut Desert” are perfect for long mountain biking in Iran. Cycling through Iran’s Dasht-e Kavir (Central Desert) is a MTB desert tour in Iran where we can go a considerable distance deep into the desert.
In winter, when everywhere is cold, we have perfect and pleasant temperatures in the south. We also have a couple of tours in different parts of the Persian Gulf. Cycling in Qeshm & Hormuz Islands in the Persian Gulf is the best winter holiday Mountain Biking tour in Iran, which is conducted on the islands of Qeshm and Hormuz. Persian Gulf Coastal Road Cycling is another biking tour of Iran during this time of the year. It is a combination of the coasts of the forever Persian Gulf and the mountainous roads to Shiraz.
