Description

Cycle between the granite and sandstone mountains on the desert sands all the way through the largest Wadi in Jordan. The first 10 km on sand after Rum village are particularly tough but the next 24 km are easier, as they are all down hill. From this point, the caravan sand tracks join a road for just under 10 km. Afterwards, there is a small checkpoint before you enter the highway for the final quick descent to Aqaba. For the final minutes of the trail, cycle along the city streets of Aqaba until turning off to the giant flagpole and Mamluk fortress by the Red Sea.

Physical & Technical Difficulty

Difficult – A mixture of long steep climbs and various track surfaces. Over 1,000m of ascent. Some uphill on rugged terrain requiring rider to push bike. Physically demanding to peddle through Wadi Rum’s softer sand.
