This summer join Hazon on the 2009 New York Jewish Environmental Bike Ride! The Ride is two day retreat followed by a two-day bike ride, September 4-7, 2009.
The Retreat is a multi-generational and inclusive event. Learn, celebrate and relax at the beautiful Shabbat retreat, while enjoying kosher, local and organic food. If you think your CSA veggies are wonderful now, imagine the fresh from the farm produce in early September. The weekend is filled with educational and recreational programming for children, teens and adults. The Retreat is held at Camp Kinder Ring on majestic Sylvan Lake. Shabbat services are organized for every movement.
The NY Ride offers cycling routes for all cycling levels, from 30 to 100 miles. Fun for the whole family! You will experience a beautiful, scenic route in the Hudson Valley of New York, with fully supported bike mechanics, rest stops, and luggage transportation.
Registration is $399. This includes all your meals, lodging, luggage transfer, snacks, bike and medical support and a weekend filled with environmental programming. All participants have a fundraising minimum.
The money raised from the bike ride will go to support a wide range of outstanding and innovative programs in the U.S. and in Israel, such as Hazon’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in North America, and the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, a premier environmental teaching and research program in the Middle East that brings together Jewish and Arab students.
This ride will provide you with a physical challenge, an empowering experience and a welcoming and warm Jewish community. Join The People of the Bike! Register now at www.newyorkride.org.
