  Tuesday, June 23rd, 2014  - a successful first season

The first ever season of Cross Arabia Challenge kicked off from Cairo on June 13th. For the following eight days, fourteen motorcycle buffs took part in the 2,300 km adventure of a lifetime.

 

These adventurers got to experience riding through some of the most scenic terrains of the Middle-East. Traveling from Egypt to Jordan and back, they rode through 9 cities, vast deserts, two seas and two continents.


Following the three successful seasons of Cross Egypt Challenge, the organizers of this unique cross-country rally set their sight on the Middle-East. With the aim of promoting tourism in the Middle-East, Cross Arabia Challenge was conceived.


The introductory season of Cross Arabia Challenge covered the route between two of the most picturesque countries in the Middle East; Egypt and Jordan. Cross Arabia Challenge 2014 launched from Egypt's famous capital, Cairo, on Friday 13th of June, at dawn.


Fourteen riders headed towards the Sinai Peninsula where they made their way towards the coastal city of Nuweiba. This 640 km ride was the longest one for the duration of the challenge. After spending the night at Nuweiba, the riders made an early start to catch the ferry across the Gulf of Aqaba to Jordan. There, they enjoyed six of Jordan’s top tourist destinations: Aqaba, Petra, Karak, Amman, Jerash and the Dead Sea.


After spending five days taking in Jorden’s sights and sounds, the riders made their way back to Egypt. They spent the night at the world famous resort city of Sharm el Sheikh before heading back to Cairo. The Cross Arabia Challenge concluded at the foot of the Great Pyramids of Giza.


Motorcycle riders from Romania, Brunei, Germany and Egypt converged to Cairo to experience some of the Arab World’s finest cities and its most adventurous roads. The eight day challenge combined an across continent adventure with pure riding pleasure.
