Lavasanat
North of Tehran, located in central Alborz mountain range is surrounded by high altitude mountains, protected area and national parks, all crisscrossed with off-road adventure and trails. There is a great wide range of mountain biking routes around Tehran for beginning cyclists up to professional mountain bikers who visiting Iran specially Tehran and has no idea about what activity to do as an entertainment. The region of biking is Lavasanat district and Lavasan is an affluent town as a part of that situated in north east of the capital city of Tehran.  It’s only 35 km far from Tehran downtown which takes around 1 hour to reach Lavasan town.
The area covers a variety of different landscapes and ecosystems which include forests and orchards, beautiful streams, springs and lakes. In spring the villages in Lavasanat in central Alborz are covered by many different plants and flowers and more water flows in the rivers. During the night, the temperature is a little cold but day temperature is pleasant. In summer, when Tehran is really hot, the temperature of the villages is enjoyable because of the mountains around which makes it perfect for Mountain Biking activity. Autumn is one the best time for adventurous riders and we have colorful nature and breezing in the mountain.   
In Lavasanat and village around there are wide ranges of offers for whom would like to cycle on the asphalt road between villages and those seeking challenging mountain biking on a single-track.
