Joel's Ride "Wheels for Meals"

It's been raining and construction is everywhere so we are changing our  ride to a 25 mile FREE training ride on MITZVAH DAY - Sunday, October 18th

Join us for your last ride of the year! Joel’s Ride: Wheels for Meals is scheduled for Sunday, October 18th.  There are four rides to choose from including a 10, 25, 42 and a metric century (62 miles).  Ride times start as early as 8:00 but are staggered so all rides ending at our after-ride event with lunch sponsored by Spin! Neapolitan Pizza as well as some adult beverages.  All rides are SAG supported and helmets are required.  The 10-mile ride is entirely on bike paths and off-road so it’s the perfect family ride.  The 25, 42 and 62-mile rides are through Southern Johnson County.  If you can’t ride, then consider volunteering for our event as a part of this year’s Mitzvah Day event.  Registration can be found by clicking here to go to   Register by October 1st, and get a free event T-shirt.  Joel’s Ride supports the Joel H. Winston Social Justice Fund at Beth Torah.  Registrants are asked to donate three cans of shelf stable foods for pantry donations.

Joel’s Ride thank yous:
We had a great time at Joel’s Ride last year! With 125 riders and a beautiful morning, the day could not have been better. And of course, we couldn’t have done it without the help of so many volunteers! Thanks to: Ellen Taylor, Robin Hendrikse, Bonnie and Mickey Swade, Marcia Rittmaster, Miki Herman, SueAnn Strom, Jeff and Ami Levin, Adam Levin, Janice and Sadye Hendler, Debbie and Oscar Chase, Hannah Luschen, Debbie Leonard, Liam Nielsenshultz, Julie Kaplan, Quentin and Samantha Hammontree, Braxton Hammontree, Mackenzie Hammontree, Callie Eaton, Sara Roth, Kelsey Nance, Sharon Altman, Andie Neuman, Julie Chesis, Jessica Earnshaw, Stacy Wright, Eva Steiner, Mike and Jill Fine, Sam Fine, Tim Fine, and Nancy Milgrim.

And an extra-special thanks to our amazing Joel’s Ride Committee, without whose tremendous efforts, the ride would not have been nearly as successful or fun: Kacy Levin, Jennifer Levinson, Jay Luschen, Keith Gates, Mitchel Krasnopolor, Bob Milgrim, and Noah Dunker.

This ride is in memory of Joel Winston who was always up for a ride.  Joel strongly believed that we’re all responsible for helping others.  We love uniting his passion for cycling with his commitment to those in need.

Thank you so much to all of the volunteers and riders who participated in Joel's Ride on Sunday, June 8th, 2014.


 All proceeds from Joel’s Ride support Congregation Beth Torah’s social justice activities, including helping the hungry in our community.
