It was a stretch of winter rainstorms in most of Israel and
most of the trails were unrideable, so my buddy Ron Margolin
and I decided to “open” the desert riding season. This time
we chose the Sugar Trail, an ancient route that was used to
transport sugar cane from the Jordan Valley to Jerusalem.
It is located in the Judean desert, a 20-minute drive from
Jerusalem, and provides some downhill, but mostly 20
kilometers of a sweet, windy singletrack. In the pictures: Ron
doing a downhill serpentine and later blasting a singletrack on a
slope filled by camel and goat tracks.
