About Us

Kosher Cycle Tours is a road cycling tour company that caters to the Jewish road cyclist.

Founded by a frum road cyclist, the company aims to provide fabulously rewarding, well-supported riding experiences in Europe and Israel, along with great kosher food, minyanim, wonderful Shabbos experiences, & more.

Our destinations & routes offer great cycling, gorgeous views, & incredible memories.

Whether riding peaks or flats, join us for an extraordinary & infinitely rewarding experience.

A Note From Our Founder

Why Kosher Cycle Tours you ask? The idea grew out of my own desire, as a cyclist, to ride in the world’s most beautiful and challenging destinations. But I wasn’t able to find cycle tours suited to a frum lifestyle. Many tour companies run tours on Shabbos, sadly even in Israel.  Food is either not kosher, without hashgochoh, or not up to mehadrin standards. Minyanim are hard to get, if not impossible. So I started Kosher Cycle Tours primarily to address these issues.


If you have landed on this page, I’m confident that your passion for cycling is similar to mine, and you, too, are looking to cycle the peaks of the world. I look forward to welcoming you to the Kosher Cycle Tours family. 


My commitment to you: As a family-owned business, our focus is on excellent service.  When you call Kosher Cycle Tours, you'll reach me. I will be on tour with you, ensuring the experience is top notch. I’ll break bread together with you, and sleep at the same lodgings. When we’re not touring, it's me researching the best routes. I am committed to providing exceptional tours that are challenging, memorable and of course kosher, all in the most economically sustainable way possible.


Wishing you only tail winds,


Aaron
