In this trip we will be biking through the eastern part of Alborz mountain range starting from Tehran by private vehicle to Shirgah in Mazandaran province where biking will start and will finish in Semnan province. The approximate length of the route is 400 Km with lots of ups & downs. A support vehicle will be with us during the trip carrying luggage and the bikes. The road is a combination of mountains, forests and back roads between villages. We will cross small towns, villages, a variety of different landscapes and ecosystems, historical monuments, old towers, springs and rivers. There will be elevation gain starting with about 300 meters and pedaling close to 2000 meters above sea-level. There will be many spots for excellent views of mountains with snowy peaks depending on the season. In this trip the main activity is mountain biking (moderate to challenging) but you should have enough previous experience to handle the long mountain biking. The accommodation in the fields would be local home stay where possible which means there will be no seat type toilets but there are showers every day to start the next day fresh. The food will be local meals in the villages however during the biking days we arrange package lunch and snacks. Water on the Alborz mountain is drinkable and most of the time we will have access to a spring or other source of water although the support vehicle will carry water plus bits and pieces.
