Riding

The very high standard Israel Bike Trail is a combination of flowing singletracks dirt roads, with a few technical challenges that can be easily negotiated on bike or on foot. Bike-friendly for both experienced and casual MTB riders, the trail is well marked and easily followed without a map or a GPS.
Each day, mountain bikers wake up and start biking whenever they’re ready. Biking is either on your own or in small groups – which-ever suits you best. Our experienced mountain biking guides will be last on the trail, bringing up the rear and helping out when-ever necessary.

food

Food and Drink

Each biking day ends with a campfire and cold beer under the stars, leading up to a sumptuous dinner with meat and vegetarian options. Each day starts with a generous Israeli breakfast, then pick up or make your lunch pack, and head out for another incredible riding day in the Negev!

international

International Vibe

Meet people from all over the world sharing all the love to mountain biking. Ride with them during the day, and join them during the evening for a local craft beer next to the campfire. Can you imagine the vibe?
