I don't have a bike
No problem, we provide bikes and helmets for all ages and sizes.
What sort of a person goes on a bike trip?
Our tours are highly sociable affairs. Many friends return week after week, and some have been regulars for some time. They are outgoing, open-minded active people who want to get as much out of their weekends as possible.
Where do we start from?
Normally, we meet in Amman and drive to location (obviously to escape the city) to start our ride from a convenient, attractive and car-free location. So we can start from Petra, Aqaba, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea and any other city in Jordan
What are your safety policies?
Our experience in running tours and our knowledge of the local environment enables us to minimize risks and dangers; we make sure all participants wear good-quality helmets and understand the rules of the road. However, in case of any mishaps all our leaders are trained in first aid and rescue and have comprehensive instructions on what to do and where to go for further treatment.
What if I get tired mid-way and cannot continue?
The support vehicle (truck behind the riders) will pick you up.
How do I know a certain trip is suitable for me?
We normally grade our trips as beginners, intermediate or advanced. Beginner rides are normally around the 10 kilometers on flat road that lasts for approximately one hour. Intermediate rides are for people with some previous experience, not necessarily cycling, who feel comfortable with their fitness levels (regular gym goers, etc) and last around the 20 kilometers with some minor hills. Advanced rides cover distances of 60K or more and require skill and endurance.
The last time I cycled, I was 10 years old!
For most people, cycling is a natural motion, not to be forgotten since age 10. The first new minutes might feel funny but that great feeling of a 10 year-old will be back.
What should I bring?
For a short bike ride, you will only need your two legs, a small snack and a water bottle. Other important items might include: Sunglasses, sun-block and a padded cycling shorts.
Are the rides suitable for youngsters?
The rides are suitable for ages 12 onwards; some younger children might be able to join if they feel comfortable with their riding skills.
What are the rental/hire bikes like?
We only use aluminum frames, Shimano speed gears, front shocks and ‘V’ brakes. All our bikes are constantly serviced by our team to insure a fun and safe ride. They won’t let you down, we promise.
