Biking For Peace, American Style In Israel

He may be no Lance Armstrong, but I'd be willing to go bike riding with Josh Spizeman any day of the week (as long as it's not at five a.m. in the morning).

(Israel Today) Josh Spizeman, a young New Yorker and a bicycle enthusiast, has decided to prove his commitment to advancing peace and understanding between Jews and Arabs by going on a two-week bicycle ride across Israel which he calls the "Ride for Peace."

The trip, which has already begun, will take Spizeman from the northernmost city of Kiryat Shemona all the way to the southernmost city of Eilat. The purpose of the trip is to raise money for "Hand in Hand," a center for Jewish and Arab education in Israel.

You can check out more info about Hand in Hand on their site. I'm really impressed by what they are doing, and for Spizeman riding for their cause. Perhaps if they can teach the kids to get along, there may be less tension in the future for both sides.
