Every year Israel Riders raise money for the Arava Institute of Environmental Studies and contribute to a more sustainable future. It is with heavy hearts that we will not be able to hold the 2024 Israel Ride. In its place, we are offering a smaller trip to Israel called, Arava Institute Mission: Insights into the Region, which will include an opportunity to bear witness to some of the impacts of October 7th, have an immersive experience day at the Arava Institute and have 2 riding days.
