Israel Road Cycling Challenge
Trans Israel is another initiative from Gran Fondo Travel, a subsidiary of Gran Fondo Israel, producer of some of the biggest cycling events in Israel, such as Gran Fondo Arad - Dead Sea and Gran fondo Hermon. The event is held for the third time, and we promise you a riding experience at the highest level, a journey you will remember for many years to come!
Trans Israel is intended for cyclists from Israel and from around the world, allowing for a diverse encounter among riders from different countries in the unique Israeli Landscapes!
Trans Israel will include two separate events this year:
1. Tour Israel will take place between 18-24.10.2017 (7 days, 6 nights)
The trip is catered to amateur road cyclists who want to combine a challenging bike ride that crosses Israel with visits to sites unique to the country, encounters with the different cultures, tastings of the local cuisine, and most of all, enjoy an exhilarating trip!
2. Trans Israel will take place between 18-21.10.2017 (4 days, 3 nights)
Designed for experienced road cyclists who want to cross Israel from north to south on a challenging bike ride that goes through the varied landscapes of the country, and combine their love for cycling with a trip in magical sceneries!
Israel is a small country that if you live in it, you’ve probably been to most parts of it already. If you live abroad and visited Israel in the past, you’ve probably been to some of the more popular sites.
Either way, the touring was most likely done by car or bus. Experiencing the way from the vehicle’s window and occasionally stopping at a point of interest.
Trans Israel gives you the opportunity to experience Israel like no other - through the legs, through the body, on the bike!
Breathe the cool, clear air of the Galilee Mountains while riding across the Northern roads rushing up and down as they twist and turn through forested landscapes, crossing villages of different religions and overlooking breathtaking views. Go back in time through historical and geological topography such as the Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea, Masada, Ramon Crater, and others that are scattered in every corner of the country and along our journey.
Experience the quiet of the Negev and Judean desert in its many shades of brown, where all you hear is the wind whistling in your ears, while the warm rays of sun take care of your “rider’s tan”.
Trans Israel is almost a personal journey. You will be part of a small group composed of several dozen riders from Israel and around the world. An opportunity to meet new people, make connections and together undergo lifetime experiences. All you'll need to do is get on your bike every morning and spin those pedals, we will take care of the rest. From course leaders, follow cars, technical support, , meals, drinks and snacks throughout the ride, accommodations at hotels and more ...
Waiting to see you on our next jouney!
