The most powerful stories of the Bible are those of journeys. Abraham finding Mt. Moriah, Moses crossing the desert and Jesus traveling to speak the word of God are just a few well known examples. In many cases, the journey is no less important than the destination itself, a concept that is slowly being forgotten in our day and age. Traveling by bike can take us back to those days where our personal journey was part of the pilgrimage. By biking in the Holy Land we better understand many of the geographical challenges that were part of biblical times. Cycling also allows us to be part of the land rather than to just see it passing by a window. For those who seek challenging courses, cycling around the Sea of Galilee is a fairly easy ride, yet it certainly provides an intimacy with the land and a spiritual connection. The pace of traveling by bike is the most important element, fast enough to get from place to place, yet slow enough to see and appreciate the land, meet the locals, smell the flowers and taste the locale cuisine.  Another aspect of cycling is city tours; you see the city in a whole new perspective that allows for personal connection.  Especially in a place like Jerusalem, even if you\'ve been there before, riding through the alleys and sidestreets will provide you with a an entirely new perspective of the city, its people, history, its geography, the architecture and day to day movement of life there.
