- Road bike only.
- Extremely technical ride with loads of climbing and loads of downhills.
- Pick a campsite to sleep in the night before as an early start is a must.
- The decent at the beginning is very technical. Make sure you are always in control. The lanes are really narrow at the decent is very steep.
- Once you get to the Dead Sea high way make sure you refill on nutrition. Also make sure you refill when leaving the highway as theres a crazy amount of climbing coming up, lots of heat, and no chance of refilling for a long amount of time.
- The road becomes very narrow. Beware of the Beduins driving especially when on steep inclines.
