Cycling in Jordan

The desert kingdom of Jordan is full of both historical and natural treasures. The best known is the Nabatean city of Petra; hewn into a sandstone cliff, it became a worthy member of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.

Nature has provided more wonders with the salt-laden waters of the Dead Sea and the wildlife-rich waters of the Red Sea – a draw for snorkellers from around the world. In addition, the desert area of Wadi Rum – where the 1962 film ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ was made – is a beautiful and tranquil place to spend time. Staying overnight in a Bedouin camp you can truly appreciate the night sky; without any light pollution, the starts shine in a light-studded canvas.

Country Information

Exploring Jordan by bike gives you a unique perspective of its landscape and culture. The road network is generally very good with well-maintained tarmac surfaces. One of the most scenic and rewarding routes is the King’s Highway. This good tarmac road weaves its way through dramatic desert scenery with some exhilarating downhill sections as well as a few climbs. A support vehicle is always on hand if you and your bike need to hitch a ride.

Travelling to places like Petra and Wadi Rum by bike allow you to interact with local people along the way and take your time to enjoy the passing scenery. With regular stops to visit Crusader Castles, experience floating in the Dead Sea and try snorkelling in the Red Sea there is plenty of time to rest your legs and get ready for the next ride.
