We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death. Click here to find out more, and please help this fantastic cause. Thanks!

OK, Tango and Cash...

See if you can top THAT! The GPS is a bit inaccurate on this; it cut out before we reached our destination, and we lost a bit at the start. Total distance ~110km. See that climb between ~66 and 92km on the graph? That's 1325m, from the floor of the Jordan Valley to the pass leading to Jerash.

Now, Tango and Cash think that they're tough chappies - anything like that on the Trans-Alp, lads? ;-)

Needless to say, we were pleased to see our hotel in the end...


  1. Well done, Jimmy. Tough stuff indeed - it must have been hell for those guys draggin your skinny ass up that hill!!

  2. All under Jimbo-power. Looked out the back window at Knockagh this morning, and laughed in gentle derision; a couple of months ago I thought the Woodburn Road was a challenging enough wee cycle. But that was then; this is now...
