Ride like an ANZAC!

Join us on the Anzacs Beersheba Battle commemorative mountain-bike tour – 100 years, 100 km, 1 heroic Ride.

We will follow the trail used by the Australian and New Zealand soldiers in 1917, en-route to conquer the city of Beersheba from Ottoman Empire military forces, and open the road to Jerusalem for General Allenby’s British Army brigades.

The ride integrates a host of festive and colorful events celebrating the ANZAC Centennial – including a reenactment of the horse-back charge by Australian and New Zealanders riders.

This remarkable Route will take you from the ANZAC memorial site near Kibbutz Beeri, on the first day, through spectacular parts of the famed Beeri cycling single-track, along Nahal HaBsor and Eshkol Park. In the evening, we will be holding a special Aussie and Kiwi cultural event. On the second day, the ride will continue from Golda Park through Eco Park Neot Hovav and the designated bike path to Beer Sheva. For the last section of the ride, you will be joined by the Community Route riders, including people with special needs and kids fighting cancer.

Organized By

Each rider commits to raising funds to support those non-profit organizations operating in Israel.

Packages

We offer different formats to fit the need of a broad range of riders. Single trails for advanced riders, dirt road and bike path for the others.
