The Sdom Mountain 9th Annual Bike Race
will be held in the area of Mount Sdom, close to the Dead Sea, where Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt.

You will be cycling along the winding cliff of the Sdom Valley - An Extraordinary Experience. The route passes between white wadi (dry riverbed) walls, shaped by raging floods, creating a spectacular view.

The race is located in the southern part of the Judea Desert, 100 km. south of Jerusalem and about 17 km. south of the historic fortress of Masada, close to the sulphur health springs of the Dead Sea.
