20111008 Bikers hit the empty roads on Yom Kippur
Israel comes to a complete stop on Yom Kippur. There's no traffic, no TV broadcasts, all restaurants and shops are closed. There's a serene quiet in the air. And in the secular neighborhoods that is just the time for two-wheelers. While some fathers feel it is their responsibility to teach their children faith, prayer and abstention, others take advantage of the empty roads to teach balance and agility. It's almost like a national bicycle day as kids hit the empty streets with their bikes, scooters and roller-blades.
