Today, we rode along the Spice Route. We started out from Zofar at 8.15. The weather was hot. The terrain was mixed. It started with more gravel. We continued up a really steep hill, and then rode through more gravel and wet sand to lunch.
After lunch we took a group picture and then continued along a very rocky river bed for 4km. We then rode up to route 40 on a fairly steep, but rideable incline.
Tonight we are staying in Beersheba. We had a gala dinner in Omer, but this was cut short due at the request of the police and the army. Although Hamas has not fully responded to the IDF's attacks, they are not taking any chances. Tomorrow, we will be bussed to the Jerusalem area for the final day of the ride.
