The Jordan Bike Trail

The Jordan Bike Trail is a 730km, mixed-surface bike route that crosses the entire length of the beautiful Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Starting from the North in Um Qais and ending in the Southern port of Aqaba, it passes through an impressive variety of historical and natural wonders. The trail begins with rolling hills, olive groves, and farms in the North; continues across the dramatic canyons of the Dead Sea region; meanders through the remarkable landscapes of Dana, Petra, and Wadi Rum – before finally splashing into the Red Sea. There are a number of ways to experience the Jordan Bike Trail, from a fully supported trip without the need to carry any gear or reserve accommodation, to a minimalist bikepacker adventure, or anything in between.

How to use GPX files?

GPX files are GPS exchange navigation files that can be downloaded onto your bike computers so you can access the maps while you are riding your bike. These files can be used in order to ensure that you have a safe ride and you don't get lost along the way. There are many way to import these rides and the most straightforward is to simply download the gpx file and import it manually and or you can connect apps like ride with gps to your bike computer. This is what I personally do with my Wahoo Element computer.
