Getting Ready for Israel

Posted by rabbiart on October 19, 2008

I had been blogging about my preparations for the Israel bike ride on a separate blog, but I’ve consolidated the two sites into this one.  You can read what I’ve been doing so far on cyclingforgoodness.

As of now I’ve raised almost $1900.  So I’ve got about $1700 to go in order to make the $3600 fund-raising minimum. Equally important, I’m in the final push of training before we leave Tuesday night November 4. Thanks to my friend David Sherman, I’ve got a bicycle trainer in the family room.  Except for hill work, the trainer is great, because there is no coasting and no forward motion.  I don’t know what the conversion rate would be, but a solid hour on the trainer has got to be equal to a couple hours of riding out on the street.  Last night I did a solid hour after Shabbes, and I hope to exceed that this afternoon.

I’ll be blogging about our trip and the ride everywhere in Israel where I can get Internet access.  The ride ends in Eilat, and the next day they have added a trip to Petra, so we’re really excited about that as well.  Carol in particular, with her love of archeology, has been wanting to go to Petra for the longest time.
