 Led by the chief forest ranger, Gili, the weather could not have been more perfect for the 9 riders. Instead of the Hoshaya loop, we did the Alon Hagalil loop together with the Resh Lakish and Solelim loops. Climbing height was the same but it added an extra 3.5 miles to the original ride. 1234129/188
