This year marks the inaugural Tour de Torah family bike ride hosted by the Temple B’nai Abraham Men's Club. The bike ride will be held on Crest Drive, a private paved road in the South Mountain reservation on Sunday, October 23, 2011, at 9:00 AM. The goal of this ride is to bring our congregational family together to do something fun and healthy and to raise funds to benefit restoration and refurbishment of our ritual collection.
Adults and children can enjoy riding the Crest Drive and Bear Lane loops traffic free! The route will be clearly marked and riders will be asked to follow the marked direction signs to ensure a safe flow of bike traffic. We will also have volunteers on the course to ensure a safe and fun ride. One loop is approximately 3 miles.
The Tour de Torah is open to all ages. All riders are required to wear a helmet and abide by appropriate bicycle safety rules.
Registration begins at 8:00 AM. The ride will start promptly at 9:00 AM. Once the ride begins, you will have the option to do as many 3-mile loops as you would like. There will be refreshments, music, and kids’ activities during and after the completion of the ride. The event co-chairs are Men’s Club members Scott Mager and Jason Wiseberg. Some of the corporate sponsors supporting this event include Hartzband Center for Hip & Knee Replacement, Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning, Leav & Steinberg LLP and Hauptman & Hauptman, PC..
The individual entry fee is $18. Additionally, there are different levels of sponsorship opportunity. For any questions, please contact the temple office at 973.994.2290.
