I've been looking everywhere online but I am unable to find any stories of anyone doing off road (or even any kind) of bike touring in Socotra Island, Yemen.
I was thinking about taking my mountain bike and doing some touring and hiking there. I tried to contact what seems to be the only tour operator on the island but they didn't reply. I've not traveled much outside of the US so I don't know how everything there would work out - if I'd be able to just bike wherever I wanted or where I could find restricted places, etc. Anything would be of help to me.
If you haven't seen pictures of the place, they are worth taking a look at:
