 It's how the Three Wise Men reached Jesus. No camels, they took a Yeti instead. :p

 To expand westsyderider`s fact: And then he shredded the sh*t out of them...

 Due to misinterpretation of the bible, common belief is the wisemen came by camel back when in fact they only carried camelbacks for hydration...

 "Jesus rode for yeti?"...Yup, but I think he rides for trek now Wink

 - The 3 wise men climbed up the mountain -Minnaar, Atherton, and Smith - only to race down and see Jesus was there already.

 For a second there I thought the front guy wasn't wearing a helmet. I was about to cause a scene over how this picture got POD.
  • + 1
 What does the rider wearing/not wearing a helmet have to do with the picture being chosen for POD? Last i checked it wasn't Helmet Picture of the Day.

And who cares if the rider wears a helmet or not - their head, their decision.
  • + 7
 Helmets are required for POD, look in the FAQ.

 "If you are going to submit an image or video for POD/VOD review, please ensure it is promoting the use of a helmet, because safety comes first."

Wow...thanks mom.

 So nice to see this picture, not only because I know the trail and Reuben personally, but also because I'm the second rider in it. The one "with the helmet..." Smile

So a bit about this trail, nick named the "sugar road". The name comes from a few centuries ago - this trail is actually a pilgrims trail from Jericho (at the bottom) to Jerusalem (at the top). It was used to transport people and goods, such as sugar....
It's pretty cool to ride a trail so old, and it is actually not so remote as it looks. Just a short drive from the city of Jerusalem and you're out in the desert (dry side of the mountain). This trail is usually ridden downhill and then we take a shuttle back up to the car. It's a nice and flowy ride, about 24k long, with some amazing views.
Our desert for sure has more epic trails to offer, but this one combines a lot of fun and good accessibility.

 To anyone who thinks that the first guy isn't wearing a helmet: he is its just a bronze colour and it blends in a bit.
