I really enjoyed the cycling, in spite of the cold wind at times. I had doubted whether I would keep up (as a 60+er) but was relieved not to be quite the slowest! The cycling was somewhat stage-managed with a Police 4 WD with flashing lights leading us and stopping the traffic to allow us to pass, a cycling guide at the front of the party and another at the back and lastly the coach behind that, to say nothing of the cycle vehicle which raced up and down our column! We were cheered on by children on the route as cyclists, especially western female ones, are very rare! Cycling is obviously not a Jordanian pastime.
