More than 700 bicycle riders from 11 countries around the world are expected to participate in next week’s 13th annual Wheels of Love trip to benefit the Alyn Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Center in Jerusalem.

They will start on Sunday, November 6 from Kibbutz Sde Eliahu in the Beit She’an Valley and pass through a very scenic route, ending at the hospital on Thursday, November 10.

The participants hope to raise from sponsors more than the amount – $2.3 million – collected in the trip last year.

The funds will go to rehabilitating children and teens suffering from motor, sensory, respiratory, communications, behavioral and cognitive disabilities.

After beginning at the kibbutz, they will ride to Ashdot Ya’acov, natural springs in the valley and the old bridge. On Monday, they will proceed to the Almagor Beach of the Kinneret and to the foot of the Golan Heights to Safed and Peki’in.

Tuesday will take them to the Western Galilee, Kfar Hoshen, the Beduin village of Arab el-Aramsha, while on Wednesday, they will proceed to Tefen, Segev and Beit Netofa, stopping for a bus tour to Tzipori and the Dor Beach, where they will camp out.

On the last day, they will reach Latrun, Sataf and Mini- Israel, and via two routes will end up at Alyn in southern Jerusalem where the children will await them with cheers and medals.



Registration is still open at alynride.org.
