Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center, Falls Village, CT
Registration for the 2016 New York Ride & Retreat is now open!
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 experiencing the beautiful outdoors, 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.
Upcoming Events and Rides
2015 Riders! Bring a friend. The first 30 of you who do get a free well drink on us! Meet, mingle and reunite with old friends and new at this relaxed night out.
Join us for a beautiful 30 mile autumn foliage ride along River Road.
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!
