The next stage our adventure will take 2 more days in Iran before crossing into Turkey for three Days of riding to a rest day in Kars. More hills will factor into our daily regimen including some great views of Mt Ararat. A photo of our itinerary give an idea of the climbing and coasting ahead. Our penultimate day in Iran was fun.
