Route 60 was packed on Jerusalem Day with around 500 Israeli settlers making their annual bike ride from Hebron to Jerusalem in memory of Yitzhak Buanish. Who was Buanish and why has his death inspired this physical act of remembrance?

Host Laragh Widdess tells Buanish’s story, the story of the Middle East Conflict’s volatile epicenter, and goes back to her roots with the story of Ireland’s Rás Tailteann cycle race, the perfect example of conflict – and resolution – written into sport.
