|Riders Joel Reinstein, Geri Shatz and Vivian Wong in Yerucham Lake Park|
By Bob Weiss, Yerucham Task Force member
We just completed the first ever Ride for Yerucham and we can’t wait to get started on next year’s event.
The ride from April 2-6, four days of off-road Negev spectacle and a blessed day of spa relaxation, was centered in Yerucham, which I would argue is the most interesting town in the Negev. Each night we stayed in the lovely Desert Iris Hotel, and biked out each day to a different place in the Negev. We were furnished with new mountain bikes and helmets, and had professional guides and support every mile of the way.
