Last day in Iran. We set out in the dark and get one of the most impressive sunrise so far when the sun comes across the mountains on an empty dessert road.
We directly climb for 40km to a pass at 2000 meters before descending most of the afternoon. Temperature has risen again and makes cycling tough. After 250km we reach Shiraz, the end of leg 1.
Time to prepare the bike for tomorrow flight to Cairo and do some admin for Africa. 6.000km done now and very excited about Africa.
