It would be difficult to imagine a more perfect site for bike riding than the new Katzrin single cycling trail in Katzrin, and it would be even more difficult to imagine a more perfect day for inaugurating the trail than Friday, April 4. At 8 AM, bike riders from all over the Golan Heights, Beit Shean and other areas in the region met at Katzrin's new Mikulov Park to ride the 15 km trail for the first time. They were greeted by Dimi Efrazev, the new mayor of Katzrin, and KKL-JNF regional director Aviram Tzuk, both of whom joined the riders.
Mikulov Park was created by KKL-JNF for the benefit of the residents of Katzrin, the capital city of the Golan Heights. The park expresses Katzrin’s special relationship with its twin city Mikulov in the Czech Republic. Planned by a joint steering committee from both cities, the park includes a Czech-European style garden, a children’s playground, a play area for dogs, picnic grounds and a “clock tower” that is reminiscent of Mikulov. Friday's event included the bike ride, a walk and activities for children in the park afterwards. This was the first major happening at the park, and the city's residents were captivated by the new park's charm.
