Next Time in Israel, Skip the Bus and Take a Bike

Some good news for the hundreds of thousands of cyclists in Israel:

A new bike trail will allow bicyclists to ride across the Jewish State. The first 30 km (18 miles) will be opened during the holiday of Sukkot, six weeks from now….

The preliminary trail will be a circular route from the Ben Shemen Forest, near Modiin, to Nachal Sorek – the area where the villainess Delila, of the Book of Judges, lived.

The second stage of construction will create a circular route between the Elyakim interchange, near Haifa, and the Beit Kama Junction, near Sderot and former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s HaShikmim Ranch.

  1. Yeah, IBEX reunion bike trip! I’d be there in a heart beat! The ride around Galilee was awesome and I bet this would be just as fun and challenging!
