Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village, CT
Please note that we are nearly sold out.
We have space for 2 more riders in cabins, and limited availability for tenting.
Join the People of the Bike for an unforgettable Labor Day Weekend; two days of magnificent cycling through the Berkshires and Hudson Valley, paired with a relaxing and meaningful Shabbat retreat at Hazon’s home at Isabella Freedman. This is more than just a ride; it’s hiking the Mohawk Trail, enjoying improv performances from the Bible Players, listening to the Moshav Band live in concert, eating kosher farm-to-table meals alongside old and new friends, and practicing Judaism within a community that celebrates diversity.
Cyclists have the opportunity to enjoy two days of fully-supported riding; a Sunday loop through the hills and quaint towns of the Berkshires, followed by a Monday spent on the Putnam Trail back down to NYC. We welcome non-riders to join us as Crew and assist throughout the weekend, or to come for Shabbat only and enjoy everything the Retreat has to offer.

At the Hazon Ride and Retreat, we learned that living Jewishly is much more than lighting Shabbat candles and attending services. We breathed, ate, cycled and lived Jewish values together in one of the most amazing holiday weekends I have ever spent. Best birthday gift I ever gave my husband!
