A ride in Ben Shemen does different things for different people
In some (like Tracy and Talia) it stimulates their excellent poetic talents!
So here’s in rhyme, how we spent the time - to share with one and all ...
This is a tale of a trail
With Cyclenixers galore
And the Ben Shemen forest
For them to explore
Up hill and down dale
Olives and hay by the bale
A view from a lookout
A mouthful of dust
What a thrill, such fun
Nothing better than the morning sun
A beautiful day for a ride
Until, woe betide
A wheel went poof
And the tube leaked jiffa and air
That was the proof
"A puncture" they shouted in dispare
To work they went
Half a hour was spent
A new tube was inserted
(Although at this point I deserted)
I am sure that with tenacity refined
Back on the bike they climbed.
-Tracy L. Amrani
Indeed, puncture repairedAnd now for a touch of reality:
Our numbers pared
And off we did pedal, continuing on yet another hill
And down the other side, what a thrill...
A final look out view,
Back to the parking lot we flew
Time for home made brew
And farewell till next week Cyclenix crew!
