Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike - 19 Dec 09

Hello my Fellow travelers!

I just booked a place on this trip - the last one I hear! so feeling lucky and looking forward to it and meeting you all.

If you are online before we leave - would be great to hear from you.  Any preparation tips to share?  Otherwise - see you at the airport. :-)

Regards,

Magda

Hi Magda, 

Its good to hear from someone else on this trip. Only a month to go, I am looking forward to some winter sun. I am a bit of a weekend cyclist and have not been on a organised cycling trip before, I generally trek and have also done the EBC. I have wanted to visit Jordan for years, getting on a bike sounded like a great way to get an overview without sitting in a van for hours, it will be a change to be in a hotel bed most nights,  I am looking forward to the night under the stars.

I am trying to get out and put some miles in but it is not so easy with it being so dark (and wet as I live up north) after work, I don’t want to be at the back in granny gear ;-)

 See you soon.

Martin

Hello MartinGreat to hear from you!  I am counting the days now, with some apprehension I must say, as my training doesn't seem yield great returns.  Cycling just an hour a day, downhill, with the wind behind me, cannot possibly be the reason, can it? ;-)I just came back from a hiking trip to the Black Mountain in Brecon Beacons NP - atrocious weather, fantastic bunch of people, great fun - so the jury is still out there on cycling vs hiking I must say!I've been on a Cycling Safari in Ireland some 10 years ago which was great if a tad hard work (hilly!) And I was fit then...  So don't worry - this time the granny gear is all mine!On a (slightly) more serious note - I am really looking forward to this trip - a dream destination for a number of years.Also, I would love to chat about the EBC when we meet as I was planning on trekking it but didn't happened.Hope you and everyone else is doing fine and getting ready for the trip.  Look forward to seeing you in +3 weeks' time!Best,M
