We rode on down Mount of Olives to "Gat Shemanim" and then to the Old city near the Wailing wall .
The ride continued out of the old city via the Jaffa gate and to the new city , passing near the Prime minister suite and near the Knesset and Israel museum .
We passed Mount Herzl that is the national cemetery and rode down a great single track to the picturesqe village of Ein Kerem and on back to Motsa .
This type of ride includes all that Mountain Bike can provide .
Riding in cross country trails in flat area and in steep climbs .
