We are also looking forward to sharing with you the structure the Cycling Federation of Azerbaijan has built since they started the cycling project in 2011, and sharing its plans for the future.
The Tour covers all seven regions of Azerbaijan in five stages, starting and ending in the capital city of Baku. This Caucasus nation contains nine of 11 climate zones, with mountains, ridges and plateaus covering more than half of the land. On its eastern side, Baku sits on the beautiful Caspian Sea.
