Attention Baltimore bike riders – now is your chance to race for a healthier community! The third annual ECORIDE will take place June 5, 2011 at Pearlstone Conference & Retreat Center in Reisterstown. Race-length ranges from six to 62 miles, and all proceeds go to Kayam Farm, the country’s first and most-prominent Jewish sustainable farm.

“The more I work with Kayam, the more I realize what a unique asset it is to the community,” says Micah Coleman, Chair of ECORIDE 2011. “Baltimore is blessed to have a gem like Kayam. We should all take advantage of what it has to offer, including the opportunities to support it.”

ECORIDE begins at 8:00 a.m. at 5425 Mt. Gilead Road. Cost is $36 per rider. Teens 13-16 can participate in ECODASH at 10:00 a.m. That course keeps youth on the Pearlstone property and includes an obstacle course. For full details, visit

ECORIDE is part of day-long farm experience. Post-race, families can take in ECOFAIR, music, moon bounce, organic treats and more! Kids can even meet – and pet! – Kayam’s animals.

Pearlstone Conference & Retreat Center and Kayam Farm are agencies of THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore. Learn more about healthy living opportunities in Jewish Baltimore>>
