J-Cycle 10: A Bike Tour of Historic Jewish Detroit

It's our 10th-anniversary bike ride of historic Jewish Detroit!  This year, we're featuring Jewish connections to the auto industry, including Beth Olem Cemetery, the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, the Meyer & Anna Prentis building at Wayne State University (featuring a presentation by a Prentis grandson), and more.  It might be our best ride yet.  Starting and ending at William G. Milliken State Park in Detroit.  18 miles, 5 stops, about 3 hours long.  Start times vary.  J-Cycle will run rain or shine, but will be canceled by 5am on Sunday, October 10 if severe weather is threatening.  Please watch your email!

 

NEW THIS YEAR: There is also a bus option.  Same tour, but from the comfort of a (half full, socially distanced) charter bus!  The bus will leave from Congregation Beth Ahm (5075 W Maple Rd, West Bloomfield, MI) at 9:30am.
