A Pessach Odyssey
David had to take the reins in view of Uri's unexpected absence. He had some 15? riders to take charge of on Pessach eve or is it morning? Most wanted to be back early and that included a returning Prodigal called John.
Barbara and Benny also turned up so it was another cause for celebration. The cold weather prompted a quick departure so David set off to Bnei Zion from where we carried on to Ronit Farm and then Europe Park in Yaqum. The trails were mostly dry with some rutted dry patches but overall, the conditions were more than satisfactory. After losing Haim we had a breakfast stop at Yaqum Black Iris lookout and after Haim's reappearance we started our return journey back on the western side of Road 2. Several riders left the group to return on a more direct route. At Shfayim we turned east and trailed on via Rishpon and then on to Ra’anana via the Herzliya airport route.
Apart from minor tech issues with Sammi’s bike it was by all accounts a Peassach Odyssey of successful proportions.
Thanks to David and the weather and to Alex who came to Dina’s rescue with a loan of a wind proof jacket.
