Is there a better way to start a day's work than riding through green fields, white and yellow daffodil flowers, and orange trees? Can you smell the smells we do?
We have several alternatives to pick from. We have an "urban" route and two "green" routes, which we prefer.
The other "green" route takes us through an open area in the northern part of Tel Aviv. This area is the habitant of animals and flowers and was left undeveloped because of its proximity to fuel and gas tanks, but once these were taken away, construction entrepreneurs want to build there, so there's going to be a struggle between nature defenders and city authorities.
Both Anya and I are XC (Cross Country) mountain bike cyclists, so this natural route helps us "extend" Saturday, and gives us an hour of cycling in the nature. We hope that in 5 years time this area is not paved with asphalt. In part, it depends on people like us to stand and oppose construction plans in the area.
To sum up - if you wish to start your day's work with a smile on your face, cycle to work. If you wish to return home and still have that smile – cycle home.
