9th - April 2016
Twenty-one British cyclists took part in Bike Palestine where they cycled approximately 200 km across the West Bank, starting from the northern city of Jenin cycling southwards through the ancient city of Sebastia, the old city of Nablus before reaching Taybeh. It wasn’t only hard cycling through dramatic landscapes, but also relaxing moments enjoying the easy rides in Bethlehem and Jericho, and even the unique experience of floating on the Dead Sea – the lowest point on Earth.
The cyclists’ rode to the divided city of Hebron, as well as into the historic city of Jerusalem, where on each day were given cultural tours of the divided cities. A farewell dinner party was enjoyed by all at the Grotto Restaurant in Beit Sahour. We look forward to hosting the next Bike Palestine tour in the Fall 2016.
