Join the Hazon Cross-USA Jewish Environmental Bike Ride

I am one of the organizers of the Hazon Cross USA Jewish Environmental Bike Ride. We are looking for more riders ... you don't have to be Jewish to join us. This is a 10-week ride from Seattle to Washington, DC. Riders may choose to have their gear carried in a van, or they may carry their gear.

Join us from June 6th, 2012 to August 18th, 2012.

The ride is a fundraiser for environmental causes. Shorter segments (Seattle to Minneapolis, Minneapolis to Chicago, Chicago to DC) are also available.

We are going to be eating vegetarian, kosher food only, and observing Shabbat. An important principle for us not only to show what can be done on a bicycle, but also to demonstrate that kosher food can be more sustainable and more healthy. Imagine how healthy you can be after 10 weeks of cycling and eating a healthy Hazon diet.

We are also very inclusive ... all ages and all levels of Jewish observance from interfaith fellow traveler to observant and Orthodox will be welcome and will feel comfortable in our community of cross-USA riders!

Pacific Northwest riders ... Perhaps the first week of the ride (Seattle to Spokane) or the first five weeks (Seattle to Minneapolis) is perfect for you. The first week will mostly follow the John Wayne/Iron Horse trail over the Cascades and into central Washington state.

Seattle to Spokane, June 8-17

9 Days, 6 Riding Days

For this segment of the Ride, participants will experience dramatic landscapes, geological phenomena, and 3,000 feet of climbing. After leaving Seattle we are headed toward Fall City where five miles out of our campsite, we reach Snoqualmie Falls, an 84 meter cascade that always puts on a show. We will climb through the Cascade range on an old rail trail. From Lake Easton we descend on the John Wayne Trail through the eastern Cascades towards Ellensburg, a small city at the center of a flat agricultural basin, the Kittitas Valley. We will take the Fish Lake Trail into Spokane. The bike path is is paved with asphalt near the city, but also has some unpaved parts. We will be spending Shabbat in Spokane and you will be able to head home on Sunday.
