Ride Reports

Ride Report - Jan. 25th 2014 - Home patch report -  By Yvette

An enthusiastic group of 19 riders set off eastwards up Ahuza Street and off into Givat Chen. Riding out through the fields towards Hod Hasharon, it was a wonderful ride. We crossed the bridge over Geha rode on headed on towards the Yarkon. Reaching the river, we turned eastwards riding along the banks of the river. I don't recall exactly where the first large puddle of water (or should I say mini-lake? ) was that had to be crossed but I know that it was the first of several, some of them deeper and some of them shallower. Some people road through quickly, others were more hesitant but we all made it in the end, one way or another. There wasn't a dry foot to be seen and some riders were even wet up to their knees. Ingrid rode through a really deep puddle with style, inspiring all and showing us how it should be done. There was also an incident with some intellectually impaired people in jeeps who didn't realise that driving through water would make it move, causing all in its path to get even wetter feet! It was a pleasure to see a large group of children from the "Noar Oved" out on a day's walking trip, enjoying the joys of nature.

The Yarkon River ride is always lovely, this time especially so, being such a lovely day, with the blue sky and shining sun. We rode along the banks, through Neve Yarak and Givat Ha'Shlosha and on to familiar paths through Elishema on to a well deserved breakfast stop in Kfar Saba at Demo and Cuba (I think). From here the ride home was a little tiring, back through Hod Hasharon and Givat Chen and finally back to Raanana.

This ride was a little longer than usual, just over 40 km but definitely one to be remembered!
