Ride for the Living

May 9 @ 8:00 AM 2:00 PM

This round-trip ride from Ferndale to the Detroit Riverfront is for riders of all ages and skill levels. Everyone from Slow Rollers (avg 11-12 mph), Cruisers (avg 13-15 mph) and Chasers (avg 16-18 mph).

If you can ride a bike and like hanging out with other cool people, then you can Ride For The Living!

The Krakow JCC’s annual Annual Ride For The Living from Auschwitz to Krakow commemorates Jewish history and celebrates the miraculous rebirth of Jewish life in Poland today. This corresponding 30-mile ride, held by Federation’s Israel & Overseas Department, is Jewish Detroit’s own way to commemorate and celebrate. Plus, proceeds from our ride will directly benefit the Krakow JCC.

We’ll start at Ferndale’s Gerry Kulick Community Center and finish (at our own pace) at Ferndale Project for food and drinks. The first drink is on us!

Let’s ride to honor our shared Jewish heritage. Registration fee includes a Ride For The Living fanny pack and one drink voucher.
