Take the long tour through the ancient land of Israel, home to one of the earliest cultures of mankind, and the bedrock of the holy bible. This is where it all started.
 
From the No Man's land of the desert, full of sharp mountains, colorful sand and amazing single tracks to the biggest green forest in Israel.
 
We are going to take you on to an adventure from South to North, from East to West. only you, your bike and maybe a friend or two.
 
Cross rivers, swim in lakes, rest for an hour under an old tree, feel the energy coming back...
 
Climb some of the tallest mountains Israel has to offer but from there give your eyes magnificent Panoramic views of the Golan, Desert, Galil, Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv.
 
This journey is not about Getting first to The finish line but to enjoy the moment of breathing freedom.

You'r journey starts now!

No GPX trail will be provided, just a list of checkpoints. Participants will need to plan their route in the most optimal way for them, in order to pass through the maximum number of checkpoints collecting maximum number of points within the event time frame

All we will provide is a list of checkpoints and tabulation of results. Period. There is no race organization, no support system, nothing. You will be completely on your own, just as you would be if you chose to ride any other trail, on any other day

If you want to be included in the "results" you need to follow the rules of self-supported travel and tracking set on the rules page. This means things like support crews and water caches are not allowed. This is done in order to ensure a level playing field

The event will be tracked by trackleaders.com, providing a live map, and stats that can be used to follow along. While carrying a SPOT and being tracked by trackleaders is only mandatory in case you want to be tracked and ranked on the event page, it is recomended and encouraged for all participants for obvious safety reasons
