16 of us set off on a 23 km ride with a bit of everything: sun, sand, sea, mud, uphills, downhills, people jumping out of aeroplanes, greenery...
We rode from Ein Carmel mostly along the coast - Nachsholim, Dror and on. Each bay was tranquil and inspired a kind of Mexican wave with lifting our bikes against the backdrop of the sea. Merrill attempted an obstacle but flew off and has a lovely purple bruise for her troubles...
The weather was perfect and the inlets remind me of the Clifton beaches in Cape Town - one lovely bay after another. David led us along mud puddles and into a bit of mud too - I guess I will be cleaning my bike with a toothbrush again this week.
So, in the spirit of Wordsworth and his daffodils (with a LOT of poetic licence):
We cycled happy and with glee
And whizzed over mud and sand
When all at once we saw the sea
Stopped and were so glad
We lifted up high our bikes
Fluttering and dancing with many likes
