WEST ORANGE, NJ - This year marks the Second Annual Tour de Torah (TDT) family bike ride hosted by the Temple B’nai Abraham Men's Club. 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 funds raised will benefit the Temple B’nai Abraham Jewish Education Program, grades K-12. Please note that even if you do not own or ride a bike, your kids do, so bring their bikes and you can walk/jog the course and let the kids go for a fun ride, (traffic free, flat roads).
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 abide by appropriate bicycle and safety rules as well as sign a waiver before participating in the ride. The TDT Co-Chairs are Men’s Club members Robert Stecklow and Evan Mason, and TBA Men’s Club Co-Presidents are Craig Kantor and Lawrence Moskowitz. Sponsors include CORE Therapies, Livingston Pediatric Dental, Livingston Bagel and the Wiseberg family.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. 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.
