At 7.00am or very close thereto, 20 Cyclenixers who were prepared to brave the heat set off on a ride, purposely made a wee bit shorter, in an effort to beat the heat!
We were delighted to have our Michal back from her cycling trip abroad and everyone admired her super biking top, bought by her as a memento of the amazing trip she did. It was also great to have Mike back with us.
The route decided on was ALL ON ROAD (too hot to tackle thick sand) and Rafi was our leader. He took us along Ahuza Street and through some of the streets of Herzliya, through the Herzliya Park, across the Herzliya Bridge over the Railway line and on towards the Marina. We hoped for a little relief from the sea breeze (and we weren't disappointed) as we cycled along the pier to the end dodging walkers and a few other bikers, where we took a short break taking in the views. At the end of the pier there's a signal light on top a "not to high" tower and for a good part of the duration of our stop there we witnessed a gentleman who appeared to be doing his best to push the tower over. He didn't succeed, and as we left, we saw him swinging his arms frantically in all directions, probably annoyed that he couldn't budge the tower.
From there it was homeward bound along the Herzliya beach front, through Herzliya, and on to our refreshment stop at Arcafe. We covered 24kms and everyone survived. Another great ride with great company was under our belt.
Keep cool and hope to see you next week.
