Daring Deeds - real stories, expeditions, road trips and adventure

Holyland MTB Challenge - Sun, Sea and Jerusalem

By Paul Errington
22, Jul, 2014

Considering what is going on in Israel currently, Paul's tale shows how nice visiting Israel can be

Waking in our dusty clearing we were soon rolling and the trail we couldn’t find the night before was just as elusive in the daylight.  We resorted to bush whacking through the vegetation until we popped out on to a very distinct trail.

Today’s goal was Tel Aviv and beyond. The promise of a roll along the coast and plenty of food options on offer spurred us on.

The days riding would see us skirt the Israel/Palestinian current border.  While doing so we witnessed car loads of Palestinian’s being dropped off near a gap in the fence where they would exit to waiting cars on Israeli soil before being sped away.  Another highlight as to just how real and raw this event can be. This was TV esq images occurring right in front of us.
