ULTIMATE ISRAEL RIDE DESCRIPTION—MAY 3- 17, 2022

SPRING IN THE HOLY LAND

Shalom! Ever cycled in a place where your guide stops by the side of the road, points to a nearby landmark, pulls out a book, and reads the description of what you are looking at from the Bible?

Ready to celebrate what we all hope are the waning moments of the pandemic by cycling in one of the most highly-vaccinated countries in the world?  We have just the place for you—Israel! A place with layers of history on every hill, delicious Mediterranean food on every corner, and excellent infrastructure for cycling. A place full of history, but also a modern, thriving, diverse culture and economy --- in many ways, one of the greatest success stories in modern history.

Our ride, “Spring in the Holy Land”, or “Ultimate Israel”, will allow you to experience this fascinating country while enjoying some beautiful cycling routes, learning about the ancient and modern history from excellent local guides and taking advantage of some nice creature comforts.  We will be cycling between world-class hotels during a time of year when the weather in Israel is ideal for being outdoors.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
