Hey. I think that guy in yellow is riding my bike! One doesn't hear about 'riding to the Dead Sea" in bike magazines. Exotic. I love it.

Did you guys get any fishing in during your trip? Here in Kentucky you wouldn't have had to carry bait, they sell it in the vending machines.

I never thought about winter or mountains in the desert. I did some searching on scorpion's ascent and found it interesting. I really like reading about these types of rides....gives me a chance to learn new things:)
