Starting in our warehouse in Tzifririm you will meet your expert guide who will fit you for your high quality road bike. You will set out through the local villages making stops if required at historical and archaeological sites.

As you ride you will experience the beauty of the area with its wide valleys and abundant agricultural and forested areas.
