Point to Point (P2P) – A self-supported social mountain bike challenge, crossing Israel in a unique trail and atmosphere, full of mystery, experience, difficulty and fun. Take your gear and prepare yourself for a race never ridden before!
So, where does “social” fit in a self-supported event? We want to give something different, something that will change the nighttime experience and help riders overcome their difficulties. That’s why we split the track to segments.
Some of the resting points are near a forest, the others close to a village, and only at these points bikers can stop and rest. While resting they can meet other riders, maybe even prepare a fire together and have a beer and help each other fixing the bike. When the race continues, you're on your own, each one with his own struggle.
You don’t have to stop at every point while riding but you must choose in which point you want to rest, and only there.
Each participant must follow 3 Rules:
Biking solely on route.
The race takes place on segments only, your can ride with friends as well!
You can help other riders while staying at resting points, and only there.
While drawing the route, we stick to the following guide lines:
Route is MTB friendly
Easy to reach starting & ending points
