After three years of military service in Israel, four months of traveling across Asia and three more months at home, I'm super excited to share a new video!

There aren't many good trails to ride in Israel, and if there is they kept them secret. I knew I wanted to shoot something special for the first time after almost four years I didn't touch my camera.

I was riding one weekend with a good friend of mine and he took me to his secret trail up in the north. The minute we finished the trail screaming like crazy, I knew this was the place that wanted to shoot a video!

In the next video, you are going to experience a peaceful and calm MTB video, but at the same time with a slight randomness. Expect a powerful experience.

 I had the privilege of riding at Mt. Horshan with local Israeli colleagues about 10 years ago while on a business trip. This is clearly a different trail system but I hope my old friends are in the know about (and enjoying) this one...

 To all you know all smart asses,
Most if not all of you, don't know shit about what it means to live in Israel. You don't know how it feels to have buses exploding around you, either in Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, or else were, or what its like to have missiles thrown on your house or city day after day. (I can go on with more examples, like how it feels to call your pals to set a night ride, and before night comes to be immediately drafted for reserved military service on the border with Lebanon leaving your wife and kids back home).
So please do save us your self-righteous opinions, based on half truth fed by biased news outlets.
What you can, and maybe should try to do, is enjoy this nice short edit of 2 talented riders and let us enjoy some MTB riding and shredding, be it on our bikes or watching online vids.
And to the filmmaker and riders... Great work!!!

 ... Good bike's & riders, but seeing the same corner or feature hit from every different angle is still boring because I'm watching the same thing over and over again.. not bashing you, just show more corners or features from One decent angle, not 3+ times of the same old same old~ lol

 @WAtrailmaker: I agree. If someone posted a KKK mountain bike video that would be okay right? Morality has no borders. Political correctness is only social mind control to keep one from speaking the truth. You may want to look into Israel's role in 9/11...
  • + 5
 @Golden-G: I see your point of view. But this video had nothing to do with Palestinians or the Gaza conflict. Just because someone is from Israel doesn't mean they have a part in the things you believe Israel has done.
These guys worked hard to make a nice video. I'm just asking that you not place blame by association. Keep it positive:-)

 @Golden-G: i'm a secular and atheist. I don't believe in god and i don't eat kosher either or strict to any religious customs. And so are most of the Israelis. And i have no any influence about the relationship between Israel to the Palestines. Every Pink Bike user from Israel is a simple person who just like to ride a bike. We are not politicians and we have no any decision about any action between Israel to Palestine! Again- only a humans who love to ride their bikes. Your view is so shallow and narrow.

 @Golden-G:

Comparing Israel to KKK? Seriously? You are terribly misinformed, and making a fool of yourself. As said here: Israel has freed Gaza in 2006! It still supplies most of Gazas electricity and Water - even though they never pay! what world are you living in? 600,00 killed in Syria in few years, more in Egypt, Yemen, Iraq, millions in recent decades - all in Arab-Arab conflicts. less than 1% of these in the Israel-Arab conflict. Actually, the only place in the mid-east where Arabs live without a constant threat to their life and freedom is the "terrible" Israel. The best economic conditions for Arabs in the middle-east are in Israel. The only functioning democracy in the mid-east is... Israel. Just because BDS is "cool" doesn't mean its right. Get you facts straight, and not straight from muslim-funded media and researchers. And until then, please, over here - KEEP IT ABOUT RIDING!

 Fair enough. Based on a lot of the comments from the oro-israel side I will disagree. @Eden4:

 Bullshit mate. There are no limits on morality. What Israel has done, is doing and will continue to do to the Palestinians is a ethnic cleansing plain and simple. @chipopo:

 Well said. I am however compelled to stand up for Palestinians wherever and whenever possible. The media is complicit in the evils of Israeli government so very few people are aware of the genocide that is taking place. I am sure that there are many good people in Israel. @WAtrailmaker:

 Zionism is wrong and you know it. I am a moral person and believe in human rights for all people. Prior to israel's existence, jews, muslims and christians all lived in peace together. Israel is an apartheid state. That is a fact. @Eden4:

 @Golden-G: don't let facts mislead your crusade.
Fact is: Prior to Israel, Jews (6 million of them to be more precise) where murdered by the Nazis and their allies, mainly in Europe.
Fact is: about 20% of Israeli citizens are Arabs - their life opportunities and rights are equal to Jewish Israelis, and much better then in any other place in the middle east.
But, Hey, you see your self as so moral, so lets not ruin your self perception with facts.

 Fact only a jew can own property in Israel. You may want to look up the International Red Cross' numbers in Jewish populations in Europe pre 1938 and then again in 1946. Israel was formed at the Swiss Jewish Congress in Geneva in 1918. Oded Yinon Plan for a Greater israel is in full effect. You can not sway me with your propaganda. You are not God's chosen people. @roygold:

 @Eden4: Look what Israel did during the siege of Gaza!!! What kind of a sick government would do this to their fellow human beings! Tzipi Livni and anyone who support the ultra nationalist/zionist government of Bibi Netanyahu are animals!

 @Golden-G: 20.76% of the population in Israel are Arabs (Muslims and Druses by Wikipedia) and they are allowed to own a properties just like every other civilian in Israel. The rights and the conditions of every cotizen in Israel are exactly the same. I've never heard so much bullshit from someone who call to his stuff facts. You are totally f*cked and racist! i'm not gonna continue arguing with someone who says so much bullshit while he call them facts.

 @Golden-G: Sounds like you've been chugging on too much smug western liberal know-it-all Palestinian propaganda and taking it as some absolute truth cos you only want to see and hear what you want to see and hear. Anyone who has an opinion that's not compatible with your 'truths' and your lame at best comparing Zionism with Nazism (2+2=5 does it?!), and you immediately make your argument invalid. All the Palestinian Arabs of the west bank and gaza suddenly feel so much better cos some guy from Canada gave us some harsh truths on a MTB website. Give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back you must be an expert especially with your "Indians come from India" comment, ever heard of First Nations?!

 @Golden-G: Hamas is guilty of crimes against humanity (as is the Palestinian Authority), as well as war crimes as stated by the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group. But we're sure you've conveniently never bothered to take notice or just ignored it.

 @streetkvnt-kvlt: it's not black and white. It is however an occupation and a siege. Resistance is not Terrorism. Israeli/Zionists control the US government(AIPAC), own and control the media as well as the private central bank know as the Federal Reserve. So you will never hear the truth in MSM. You can't sway me with your rhetoric. Google 'The Sampson Option' and 'The Oded Yinon Plan for a Greater Israel' and you will see who the real terrorists are, they're not Muslims.

 @Golden-G: Great, you're one of those "zionists control the media/banks/governments/the price of fish" and other mindless rhetoric nutjobs. Let me guess, you also think Jews and Israel caused 9/11, vaccines cause autism and the moon landing was faked?!

Yeah I'm more than familiar with those 'facts' and 'links' you mentioned, nothing but baseless paranoid conspiracies to suit paranoid egos.You stay in your little tinfoil hat conspiracy shit island and keep spewing your chickenshit to all the other drones. For the record I don't pay any attention to MSM etc.

 @Golden-G: Oh I never said I fall or believe the lies of governments and mass media! Seriously just because people support a country you know absolutely nothing about doesn't give you the right to call people ignorant or stupid. What makes you so f*cking special?! I also never said I believe in a 'god' or any man written religious texts (funny how you didn't mention the Quran). Anybody who criticizes anyone for supporting Israel is either f*cking ignorant and/or f*cking stupid. Btw how're the First Nations Indians getting on that you've so conveniently forgotten about?!


TL;DR Go back to sniffing your own farts and believing everything you see and read on the internet. TUUUUURRRR DUUUUUUURRR f*ck OFF.
