The 17th annual charity ride for the Alyn Woldenberg Family Hospital in Jerusalem starts today. Over the years the event has provided the children’s medical facility with much-needed funds, and the organizers are looking forward to a similar financial intake as last year’s return of close to $2 million.

The full Wheels of Love ride takes place over five days, ending with a moving ceremony at the hospital in Jerusalem’s Kiryat Hayovel district, when the riders will meet some of the children and youth for whom they have sweated and pedaled, come rain, buffeting winds or merciless sun, across the country’s roads and countryside for five days.

Each rider pays a registration fee and commits to raising a minimum amount of donations, with the organizers laying on creature comforts, sustenance, medical and technical support and police protection. There is also a one-dayer for those who can’t free up the full five days.

All told around 700 on-road and off-road cyclists, from 15 countries, will complete routes of varying degrees of difficulty before they climb up to Jerusalem on November 10 and receive their medals from the grateful children at the hospital.
