Tehran: Cycling - Mountain Biking

Modern and traditional, secular and religious, rich and poor

If you are a traveller passing through Tehran, cycling may seem a very viable option, and indeed there is probably no better way to see a city. However cycling on Tehran’s roads is probably just writing an invitation for trouble as many motorists (including pedestrians) seem to have less respect for the cyclist than they do for their fellow road users. Do not cycle in Tehran unless you are at a very advanced level of riding.
