Isreali National Bike Trail through the Negev Desert?

Does anyone have experience with or information on the four completed sections of the Israeli National Bike Trail through the Negev desert?

This is what I'm talking about... https://xpdtn3.club/trip/the-negev-desert

The trail is mentioned as part of larger bikepacking trip at Holyland Challenge Route, Isreal - BIKEPACKING.com.

The official site is http://theintexperience.com/about-the-trail/bicycles/ but the maps are pretty poor and mostly in Hebrew.

Some guy named Nimi Cohen is supposed to be a local guide but I can't find him on the internet and I've emailed a place called Samar Bikes which supposedly does MTB tours and has local guides.

Anyone know anything else?

I think you will have a lot more luck if you start by leaving "bike" out of the search. Its not necessarily a bike trail, just a trail in general that goes through the whole country, not just the Negev.

Also, Nimi is apparently on instagram, you might try that.

Good luck, looks pretty epic!

The Israel National Trail and the Israel National Bicycle Trail are two different things.

I'm looking for info on the bike trail, not the hiking trail.

I found Nimi Cohen on Facebook. Thanks!
