Ride Reports

Ride Report - Sat. June 30, 2018 - Local Ride -  By Michal

A whopping number of 29 Cyclenixers pitched up for our weekly ride.

Yoavi joined with his brand new Bergamont bike, rocking his 27.5 inch wheels and a blue and orange XS aluminum frame. He got all the attention that he needed and we were off on our way. The beginning of the ride gave us all an illusion that we are going towards the Yarkon, but to our surprise we just took a detour on gravel paths instead of riding on pavements.

Out of Raanana towards Kfar Shmaryahu, where we tried to ride through a bushy narrow path.  Frances stopped and I yelled to her very "gracefully" to move out of the way. Karma did the rest of the work since I found myself lying on my side in the bushes. Needless to say that all the witnesses enjoyed a good laugh.

We continued to ride to our beloved spot on the cliff of Arsuf. The security guard was thanked many times as always when he kindly opens the gate at our arrival. The view is the reason we stop there and it always recharges your mental battery. Rafi's nuts and other varieties of nosh are just an excuse to stay there a little longer. From here the group split up. John and a few others (aka the breakaway group) turned back towards Raanana due to the heat and feeling not on the strong side to continue for too long. The majority of the group continued the regular way coming back via Yakum,  Bnei Zion then Bazra all the way to the Promised Land Landwer.

John, Dina, Yoavi and myself were already finishing our breakfast there to welcome the few Cyclenixers who decided to dine together. Surprisingly only about 8 people made it back to Landwer and it took them quite a long time to arrive with a relatively small difference between the different lengths that we did.

I was informed that this was due to chain problems and not because the breakaway could be perceived as any actual breakaway. Since I was one of the ditchers with John's breakaway group, I can only hope that they all made it back to their destinations safely.

The group did about 33 kilometers of peddling for this home patch ride.
