30 September- 7 October 2018, Bike Palestine

In the last decade, Palestine has taken off as a destination for cycling enthusiasts of all ages both as a place to enjoy the sport, and as a means to explore the cultural and religious diversity and unique beauties of the Holy Land.

A support vehicle and local guide accompany the cyclists at all times.

Palestinians are friendly people, and cyclists can be assured of a warm welcome, particularly in the more remote villages, countryside and Bedouin areas, where the fast pace of modern life has yet to spoil their authentic traditional hospitality.
