Be part of this sponsored bike ride through Israel from March 10-16, 2019!
The five day off-road bike ride gives you the opportunity to see Israel like never before. Starting at the Mediterranean Sea, you’ll experience some of Israel’s most stunning landscapes as you cycle to the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee before the final climb to Nazareth.
Starting in Tel Aviv, you’ll climb the foothills of Jerusalem and explore the old city, descend from Bethlehem to the Dead Sea and finish by cycling through the Galilee region and descending through the forests to Nazareth.
The ride is set on non-technical off-road routes. You don’t have to be an experienced off-road cyclist but you will need a good level of fitness. Full support will be provided along the route.
An optional devotional will take place each day.

Funds to benefit Nazareth Hospital Stroke Department
A stroke is a life-changing event which can affect anybody. Every two seconds someone in the world has a stroke. Strokes are the third-highest cause of death in Israel.
Treatment response times play a huge part in patient survival and recovery. Swift intervention reduces the chance of paralysis or even death after a stroke. The people of Nazareth have no access to a dedicated Stroke Department in their own town. Please help us by joining the Nazareth Challenge and help us raise $600,000 to purchase a new CT scanner and develop Nazareth’s first Stroke Department.
