We met this guy yesterday who is cycling from NW Iran to SE Iran for fun and to promote cycling in a country that has very few cyclists. The 20 year old is taking a few months and will cover 3500 km through some of the most inhospitable places on Earth. You can read more about his wonderful achievement here: www.greenbike.ir
From our unique desert hotel to Yazd took about an hour. This is the site that greeted us!
