Ever wish you could just zoom down a major road with no traffic?
Ever wish you could just zoom down the street with no traffic or smog? In Israel, nobody drives on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews. The streets are empty and it is a day many secular Israelis take advantage of to bike the streets and highways of the country.

Yom Kippur starts tomorrow night so it's a *little* late to book your ticket but when you do, El Al is the only airline in the world that will let you take your bike on board FOR FREE - no bicycle fees, no overweight/oversize charges, zilch.
Forecast for Saturday in Jerusalem is 80 F high / 61 F low, sunny, no humidity, and I for one will be taking advantage of it :D see you guys here next year!
