Ride Report - Sat. May 25, 2013 - Netanya to Nahal Alexander and back -  By Frances

18 of us set out from Poleg on a circular route with the midpoint around the turtles viewpoint at Nahal Alexander. We headed off north through the industrial area of Netanya under cloudy skies. Luckily for us, the clouds offered protection for quite a while before we were under the burning sun. We cycled around 38 km with our route taking us on paved roads, sandy paths and a few steep uphills. The compensation was the sight of the blue blue sea along the Netanya promenade.

We passed through some moshavim where we saw some interesting, grandiose architecture and those that had the inclination, feasted on mulberries. We went through, amongst others, Ma'abarot, Kfar Vitkin and Beit Herut. These were established around the 1920's and 30's and still have some of the lovely old stone buildings.

Some of the highlights: Stuart's puncture; (he uses tubeless tyres!) eating ice cream; some steep uphills; a bit of sand; cycling along the promenade.

Due to miscommunication, we didn't have a refueling stop - but those lucky enough, did get a cup of coffee at the gas station in Poleg.

Some trivia: what do you call a group of turtles? A bale/dole/nest of turtles. Now who knew that??
