The bike ride will be held on Crest Drive, a private 3- mile paved road oval loop  in the South Mountain Reservation on Sunday, April 14, at 9 a.m. The ride’s mission is to bring the growing congregation together as families and to support a healthy lifestyle.

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 abide by appropriate bicycle and safety rules as well as sign a waiver before participating in the ride.
