Registration rates increase on June 5th – sign up today!

Join the People of the Bike for a relaxing and meaningful Shabbat retreat at Hazon’s home at Isabella Freedman, and for two days of glorious cycling through the Berkshires and Hudson Valley into New York City.

It’s more than just a ride: Spend Shabbat hiking on the Mohawk Trail, canoeing on the lake, exploring the Adamah organic farm, and enjoying delicious kosher farm-to-table meals. Practice Judaism in a diverse community, with options including yoga, musical services, and traditional prayers.

Cyclists can then enjoy two days of fully-supported riding: Sunday’s route will explore the Connecticut and Massachusetts Berkshire hills and quaint towns, while Monday will be spent on the Putnam Trail in the Hudson Valley. Non-riders are welcome to join to help crew (a vital and energetic part of the weekend), or just come for Shabbat.
