The Jordan Bike Trail is a new, long-distance, mixed-track cycling route connecting the length of Jordan from Um Qais in the north to Aqaba and the Red Sea in the south. The aim of the trail is to connect the diverse geography of Jordan; and allow riders to see many hidden treasures of this wonderful Kingdom, meet local people, and experience the delights of the food and hospitality.
Ten days along the Jordan Bike Trail allows us to experience the “real Jordan” – in the rural countryside, small villages, and city centers outside of Amman. Experience true Arab hospitality along the trail, meet locals who offer us tea, and ride alongside numerous shepherds in Jordan, their flock, and of course, their dogs.
- Cycle on the newly created Jordan Bike Trail
