Jerusalem bound


No, not the bicycle, unfortunately (as much as I would like to have it in Jerusalem, but it's just too much of a hassle to take a bike on an international flight). But I'm going to bring these panniers (REI "'Round Town" open-top panniers), and maybe the rack, too. I want to buy a used bike there and then sell it to someone when I leave.

Crazy to ride a bike in Jerusalem? Maybe. But Minna says she's spotted lots of riders. And there are cycling advocacy/community groups working to make Israel more bicycle friendly:


Also, there's another Hazon ride coming up. I would love to go along:

Don't you want to bring "my" panniers too? Brian says he's going bicycle shopping in the coming days...let's see what he finds out...

I guess I could (they're light). . . Alternatively, I could take the 'Round Town panniers off the "Junker" and come with two sets of 'Round Towners.
