Another Jordanian Cycling Star Sets New Speed Record

Yes, I’ve broken my own cycling record, even. I think there are glaciers that can move faster than me. I achieved a blistering speed (blisters to my bum that is) of 3.8 kilometres per hour climbing an off road track to a high plateau above Petra, while accompanied by one of Jordan’s fastest men, Anas, my mountain bike guide. I’m sure he regretted his words, “we have all day.”
