Dedicating 10 weeks to unplug, challenge my body, savor the hypnotic cadence of a road bike tour.
This year, the New York Ride & Retreat will be hosted at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center! If you’ve never been to Freedman, you’re in for a treat! Home to the Adamah program, the sprawling site hosts an organic farm with orchards, permaculture planting, bees, chickens, and ducks. The dining hall prepares amazing delicious, local, sustainable kosher food — using pickles, jams, and goat cheese that are made on site, as well as produce from the farm. The center hugs a beautiful lake you can walk around and borders on miles of hiking trails in the rugged Berkshire hills. Day one of the Ride will explore farms and countryside in northern Connecticut. Day two will take us on rail trails into New York City. On both days, we’ll have a range of different route length options, as well as options for non-riding family members to participate on crew or to cheer from the sidelines. Registration is currently $175 for adult riders, but prices increase on February 15th. Learn more about Adamah, hosted by Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center.
