Just an hour after sunrise on Friday morning, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai will kick off the Sovev Tel Aviv-Jaffa bike racing day at Rabin Square, by signing the Charter of Brussels, an international covenant to broaden the public’s use of cycling as a transportation mode.

Friday’s massive biking event – the biggest yet to occur in Israel – will feature three different race paths: a 7.5-kilometer trail, a 22-kilometer trail and a 42-kilometer trail, the last of which involves a double loop around much of the city bounds. Each of the routes begins at different times, with the 42-kilometer track starting the earliest, at 7 a.m. The 22- kilometer route departs at 8:15 am and the 7.5-kilometer path at 9:30, coinciding with the start of a spinning class. About 20,000 riders are expected to attend, according to cycling activist organization Israel for Bikes.
