This post made me smile this morning – I hadn’t even considered the Islamic modesty laws and how this would affect your trip.
Mention of the hijab immediately produced a mental image of Friedel in the full burqa on a bike valiantly trying to keep up with Andrew.
Presumably you’re both have to keep arms, legs and heads covered up.
Is the hijab under or over the cycle helmet?? 🙂

We’ll have to post a hijab picture one of these days. There are a few further back in the gallery of me wandering around Shiraz but for cycling I have a one-piece cotton one that fits under my helmet. Definitely no burqa required! It’s not too rigourous really… no cycle shorts for me and long sleeved shirts and of course something long enough to cover my bottom. All in all fairly manageable but I am really glad it’s not hot here!
