Description

The Shaharut – Timna segment is the longest and most remote of all the Israel Bike Trail segments. It’s a challenging segment that clearly defines the concept of desert cycling.

The route reveals some of the most unusual desert scenery in the country, and perhaps even the world. You’ll pedal past undulating layers of limestone, chalk and flint as well as veins of plaster and sandstone.

For more detailed information, please refer to the official website.
