Ride Description

Come join us on an extraordinary journey around Israel as we cycle nearly 400 miles and climb 25,000 feet from our arrival on Wednesday, May 10th to our good-byes on Sunday, May 23rd, 2023 as we celebrate the Start-Up Nation on our classic Spring in the Holy Land People Cycling adventure tour. Highlights are nearly too many to name, but we will check off Tel Aviv and its beautiful beaches and Bauhaus architecture, Old Jaffa, the ‘White City’, the Yemenite Quarter, Crusader castles, the Mediterranean, Mount Herman (Israel’s highest point), the Sea of Galilee, the River Jordan, the Dead Sea (the lowest point on earth) and of course, Jerusalem and all it has to offer. Off the bike, we will conduct afternoon walking tours before settling in for culturally infused happy hours featuring local Israeli wines and craft beers, followed by exceptional Middle Eastern cuisine at our meals. 

Fly into Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV) and take the local train or an Uber to our beautiful beach front hotel, Shalom Hotel & Relax. This lovely hotel is 30.9 K and 30 minutes away on Route 1 door-to-door and this hotel has a great roof deck for Sundowners and even provides free bikes for riding locally.

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 rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
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 bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

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.
