Bike Ride- Day 3 – Yerucham to Mitzpe Ramon

Israel Ride 2014__Day 3_1684--141107Our bike ride continued this morning at 7:30. We traveled from Yerucham, a development town in the Northern Negev, heading through Sde Boker (Ben Gurion’s grave site) and then south towards Mitzpe Ramon. The day included lots of head winds and uphill. One particular climb was very steep and leveled out at Nafha prison. All together we traveled 52 miles, climed over 4500 feet and decended 3394 feet.

We had a morning break at Golda Park- a wonderful nature preseve in the desert. Lunch was at Sde Boker.
