I am planning to cycle to Tehran/Iran and looking for someone who is interested to join me. This is for next year 2020.

Unless things have changed UK citizens cannot get an independent tourist visa for Iran.

May be the OP is Iranian.
The FCO website says "Visas
British nationals need a visa to travel to Iran. You should make your visa application well in advance of your date of travel. The application process for an Iranian visa can be long and unpredictable.
The Iranian Embassy has told the FCO that to get a visa you must either apply as part of an organised tour, or have a sponsor in Iran. Check with the Iranian embassy for more information and advice."

There are people who cycle tour in or across Iran and give very good reports. Unfortunately they are not Brits, because of the visa situation. Oh to be a Kiwi.
