2018 is a BIG year for Israeli cycling! We invited two amazing journalists to kick off this year’s events at the Gran Fondo Dead Sea ride. The weather was a little rough but that didn’t stop our influencers from riding up from Masada to Arad, testing some amazing AR glasses inspired by air-force pilot tech and meeting Israel’s first professional cycling team!

We had such a blast with these two amazing writer-athletes and can’t wait for them to visit us again for the GIRO race which, for the first time outside of Europe, will begin here in Israel!
