Local Ride, Sept. 11, 2021

This ride took place on the day of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 event. Cyclenix members will not forget the horrors of that day. Most of us were eyewitnesses to that horrific tragedy. We are united in our pledge to never forget the victims, the families and support emergency teams who were there. Terror must not be allowed to win. We ride on but we never forget.

Ride Report - Sat. Sept. 11, 2021 - Kfar Neter Ride -  By אריק

רכיבת שבת

יום שבת, הבטיחו גשם, אך בשמים אין אף עננה
מתייצבים לרכיבה מול פארק רעננה
הפעם מוביל רוכב מחבורה אחרת "לא מכאן"
חבר של שייקה, יעקוב חן, ממש מקצוען

יוצאים בשמחה השבילים מזמינים את כולם
דרכי עפר נוחות עם מהמורות חול פה ושם
ונעים בקלילות לכוון צפון
וחולפים מדרום לשמורת טבע בני ציון

את היישוב בני ציון חוצים כך בכיף
בדרכי האספלט של הישוב איש אינו מתעייף
אבל אז נכנסים לרכיבה יחסית ממושכת
כשהחול פה ושם הופך את הדרך למעט מפרכת

אבל אנחנו למודי רכיבה ונהנים מכל רגע
זו הנאה צרופה לרכוב בחיק הטבע
ומצידי הדרך, שיחי הצבר עמוסים בפירות
לחובבי הסברס כמוני זה עושה כאב לב בצרורות

ואנחנו פתאום נזכרים בילדותנו בעבר
כשקטפנו, נדקרנו ונהננו מסברס קר
אבל אין פנאי להתרפק על זכרון ילדות שנשחק
ממשיכים בדרכנו, כשמימיננו שמורת תל יצחק

ובאופק השלט "איקיאה" ואנו נהנים כך לרכוב
את בית יהושוע חוצים ואוטוטו כפר נטר יגיע בקרוב
ולשם נגיע בשמחה ואהבה
ושם נעשה ( בקטנה ) מסיבה

שניים את יום הולדת היום חוגגים
התאריך המדויק כבר חלף אך הם אינם מודאגים
ברברה בסוף אוגוסט ואריק בתחילת ספטמבר, אך מה זה חשוב
זה הכיף בין חברים שבשמחה מוכנים לחגוג שוב ושוב

אריק שולף למוןצ'לו קר וטעים
עם בסקויטים מתוקים לשותים להנעים
וברברה מוציאה עוגה טעימה נפלאה
ופחיות בירה נשלפות ועכשיו השמחה מלאה

ובצומת נזכרים לשיר שירי יום הולדת בפולנית
שהפכה לשפת שירי ימי ההולדת הרשמית
ועל עקבינו חוזרים כי ברכיבה יש להתמיד
ואחרי בית יהושוע "המאוספלט" דרכי עפר כמו תמיד

והגענו בשלום אל מול הפארק , סוף רכיבה
אחרי שלושים ושישה קילומטר וההרגשה כה טובה
ונודה למובילים שבחרו במסלול כה יפה
ובודדים מאתנו, ישבו להנות מקפה ומאפה

אז נקנח בברכת "צום קל" לצמים וגם חתימה טובה
ולכולנו נאחל שעוד רבות נמשיכה ברכיבה
אז נתראה ידידי בשבת הבאה
בעוד יום רכיבה מלא הנאה

Rider Profile


Family: Father of 3 children and a devoted grandfather of 7 grandchildren (+ 1 in the near future).

Education: Technion Haifa, Faculty of Industrial & Management Engineering.

Work Experiences: A wide variety of work places and activities which included implementation of salary incentive methods, systems improvement, as well as project management, factory construction, logistics and the purchaser for electronic companies etc. For the last 30 years until my retirement I served as Vice President Operations in a large and well known data communications company.

Hobbies: A few ? which I enjoyed for a short while only - a self-defense course, wind surfing, sailing an 420 sailing dinghy, horse riding, Jeep driving.

Others - which I constantly enjoy - reading (especially subjects on meditation, fiction, thrillers, adventures), participating in many different kinds of lectures (Bible research, leaders and people who have influenced world history, globalization, linguistic changes in the Hebrew language, subjects relating to cinematography etc.) walking Israel trails (including the Shvil Israel), traveling abroad and, as (you may have guessed!)....cycling in Israel and abroad.

As I am still quite young, I hope to add a few more hobbies in the future!!


  1. ARRIVE ON TIME - Your time is no more important than anyone else’s. Check the night before for air in the tires and that all is in proper working order.
  2. RIDE PACE - This usually determines itself depending upon who and how many are riding. A smaller group is almost always quicker, while larger rides tend to be more relaxed and chatty – accept this reality!
  3. KEEPING UP - Try to keep up with the pace of the group – it makes for a more enjoyable ride for everyone. If there is consensus that the pace is too fast, tell the leader!
  4. NOBODY GETS LOST - Make sure that there is someone behind you who sees your riding direction. If not, wait until someone sees you before you continue… that person behind you will do the same. If everyone in the group does this, nobody gets lost and the group does not have to stop as a whole. We need to have space between riders – it is acceptable that the group is spread out, as long as you have sight contact with the rider in front of you.
  5. YIELD – YIELD – YIELD - Always keep to the right unless you are passing. If you want to pass, make sure they are aware of your intention. Never change “lanes” before making sure you are clear to do so – sudden moves with no warning can cause an accident.
    If you have to dismount due to sand, mud, a technically difficult uphill, etc., pull off the path, so as not to impede the momentum of the riders behind you.
    Always yield to pedestrians, hikers, horses (all are unpredictable!).
    If a rider approaches from the opposite direction and there is no room to safely pass, be prepared to pull off the path and stop.
    The rider going uphill ALWAYS has right of way.
    Restricted Line of Sight? Slow down, increase your awareness and be ready to stop. If you are coming to a blind curve, ring your bell or yell “BEEP, BEEP”.
  6. STAY TOGETHER –If you head up to the front of the ride or pulling away from the group always wait at the next junction for everyone to catch up. If you need to head back to the carpark, phone the leader, or at very least make sure you ask someone in the group to tell the leader.
  7. TECHNICAL SECTIONS – Always wait until there is a safe distance between you and the rider in front before beginning a technical section. If you end up behind a slower rider don’t ride too close behind, it only increases the pressure on that rider and can cause an accident. Hang back and give both of you space to enjoy the trail until you can overtake safely.
    On a section that you would prefer not to ride, walk well clear of the track.
  8. BE PREPARED - Ride with spare inners and/or puncture kits, tools, pump and basic first aid kit. Always wear a helmet, sunglasses, sunscreen, have plenty of water and some snacks. Do NOT wear earphones when riding – hearing what is happening around you is important.
