The Centennial Tour – Ride Like An ANZAC!

Join us for a mountain-bike ride that happens once in a century: 100 years, 100 Kilometers in one track that follows the trail used by the ANZAC (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps)

 

The ANZAC warriors conducted their courageous campaign during WORLD WAR I in the Middle East, during which they conquered the city of Beer Sheba from the Ottoman Empire military forces – in what is considered to be the last cavalry charge in modern history - thus freeing the path for General Allenby's British soldiers to advance to Jerusalem and change the course of history.

This coming October will mark 100 years since that heroic battle, and the CENTENNIAL TOUR – Ride Like An ANZAC is among the host of celebratory events designed to commemorate it. This challenging bike ride will be integrated with several colorful and festive events, and will take participants from the Beeri single-track to Beer Sheba Park.
The ride is scheduled for October 30-31 with hundreds of mountain-biking enthusiasts from around the world expected to attend. Typical Australian and New Zealand cultural flavor and events, as well as special ceremonies sponsored by the Israeli, Australian and New Zealand governments are planned for that time frame in the Beer Sheba region.

Most importantly!
The ride is organized by two nonprofit organizations – BUDO FOR PEACE and SHEKEL, and all revenues are for supporting empowerment programs for children with Cancer and people with special needs.

So, open you calendars and save the dates for October 30-31 Centennial Tour! Come Ride Like An ANZAC!
