When I was at Tel Shiloh last week for Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers, I saw this little sign. Yes, that's the sign of a designated bicycle path. And yes, it is a bit rocky. That's why I didn't take it all that seriously.
When I was young we rode our bicycles on the road, even busy ones, but we didn't go riding on unpaved surfaces. Even if the bike was sturdy enough, isn't it harder and more dangerous?
On Friday we had a family hike/picnic Israeli style at Nachal Shiloh, a fantastic spot just on the other side of the main road, across from Tel Shiloh, just south of Givat Harel.
We were rather surprised to see lots of cyclists.
And there are special bike path logos, too.
I had no idea that there was such a popular and delightful tourist spot right near home.
