On the final day of riding, we will ride to the southern tip of Israel – Eilat. Chalutzim start with a climb out of the Arava valley (that everyone rode down the day before), one of the steepest climbs on the route. Tzofim will be bused up, and will join Chalutzim for a ride along the Egyptian border. Shomrim will rejoin us from their morning touring for lunch, and we will all end with a stunning descent into the city of Eilat, where we ride through the city to the beach. After a swim in the Red Sea we head to bike packing and a final dinner. Tzofim: 49 miles, 3400 feet climbing. Overnight: Isrotel Princess Hotel – Trip Notes
