Route guide: Armenia
In June and July 2022, I spent five weeks riding and exploring Armenia’s backcountry and trails, entering from Georgia in the north-east, heading south down the eastern side of the country to the Iranian border, before making my way back up to Yerevan on the western side.
In this guide, I’ve tidied up and summarised and uploaded GPX files of the routes I took into 8 sections for anyone who is considering a trip there. Read on here.
