J-cycle is a bicycle tour of Detroit designed to celebrate the exciting developments happening in and around the city and to explore its Jewish history in an up-close and personal way. Now in its seventh year, the all-new route focuses on the Jewish community’s move northward: from NW Detroit to Oak Park. The ride will begin and end at the Northwest Activities Center, formerly the Jewish Community Center, on Meyers and Curtis in NW Detroit and will include a variety of sites including neighborhoods, schools, synagogues and parks. A post-ride, picnic lunch (kosher) and celebration will be held at the NW Activities Center.
Check-in opens at 8:15 a.m.
First group will depart around 8:30, with groups leaving every 15 minutes or so.
