The seemingly endless golden dunes that cover Egypt’s deserts are perfect for thrill-seekers looking to ramp up the speed on their bikes. Alexandria, the second largest city in Egypt, is the starting point for the annual Cross Egypt Challenge – a 3000km route which ends at the Pyramids of Giza. Outside of this event, less experienced bikers can join quad biking trips along designated paths, while the more experienced can go off-road on two-wheels. If you are after adventure what could be better than zipping through the sand and enjoying the beautiful scenery?
