November 14

Arava Valley –> Eilat

Congratulations, you did it! All 189 participants safely reached Eilat and we couldn’t be happier or prouder.

The last riding day was arguably the best riding day. Chalutzim woke up and got to do what they do best – conquer the climb. Tzofim enjoyed a very gradual uphill for the better part of the morning on an almost completely empty and open road. Shomrim reversed their schedule for the day and went on an awesome tour of Timna. We all gathered for a leisurely final lunch, took team shots, and prepared for an incredible post-lunch ride. This final stretch included an 8-mile descent into Eilat through canyons with a breathtaking view of the Red Sea.

The Ride came to an end with an uplifting closing ceremony where we all got to witness the 2016 Israel Ride slideshow (coming soon to a computer near you!). The photographers, Miriam and Marcos, and our videographer, Michael, absolutely hit it out of the park. With that, we all made our way over to the all-inclusive bar and spent our final hours together reminiscing, laughing, and letting the past week soak in.

To our participants – it was an absolute pleasure watching you challenge yourself and grow over this past week. To the crew – your outlook on life and the work you are doing is truly inspiring. It was a privilege getting to know you. To my fellow staff – you leave me in awe with all that you do and I am so proud to not only call you co-workers, but friends.

We already have 37 riders registered for 2017. Why don’t you join them and click here to register? We are extending the “EARLY” discount code for $175 through this Friday, November 18th.

Thanks for reading and safe travels home to all of our participants…

Yours truly,
