Accessible Cycling Track in Givat Hatzir

Who you will helpFor cyclists with physical, visual, or cognitive impairments, traditional cycling tracks are not safe or comfortable to ride. Impaired riders utilize assistive equipment to support their cycling, like tandem or hand bikes and visual aids. To make cycling accessible to everyone, JNF Israel is creating first of its kind cycle track in Israel to accommodate riders of all abilities. The trail winds through gorgeous oak forest groves and colourful flower regions and will serve Galilean residents as well as the Bedouin communities of Zarzir and Manashiya-Zebda
