State's Longest Bike Path Dedicated

The longest bicycle path in the country was dedicated, Friday morning, at the Park Yerushalayim-Emek Ha'arazim (Jerusalem-Valley of the Pines Park). Plans are for the 10km/6mile path to be expanded to 42km/27 miles.

The Jerusalem municipality points out that the path in the park is part of a route that encircles the city, a wide-ranging panorama project that connects the city to nature and enables riders to experience views of nature with the capital's heritage.
