Where to Bike in Tel Aviv
There are many bike lanes throughout the city, but if you really want to have a nice ride, visit a park such as Yarkon Park. You can also ride along Rothschild Boulevard, where there are bike lanes in the median. Other beautiful places to bike are the Tel Aviv Prominade and along the beach.
When you visit Israel, it is a great idea to rent a car to get around from city to city. But once you have arrived, park you car, and ride around on a bike so you can see each site you want without the hassle of city traffic and finding parking.
