Isabelle Ferreira is a teacher in Middletown and a local from Long Branch, New Jersey. She is no stranger to pedaling. Living in Long Branch for 43 years, Isabelle and her team, the Wave Peddlers have been highly active in their community. Being part of the Portuguese, Hispanic and Brazilian communities, they are big believers in and know firsthand how important and necessary it is to be near parks and green spaces for families to enjoy locally. Here are some of their rides:
In 2019, Isabelle pedaled from Jacksonville, Florida. to Long Branch New Jersey solo, after her brother passed away from Brain cancer!
In 2021, Isabelle’s friend Marianne joined her pedaling from Paris, France to Fatima, Portugal to benefit a local church in Fatima.
This summer Isabelle, Marianne and their group of avid cycling women will be riding the NY Empire Trail from Niagara Falls, Canada to Jackson Woods Park in Long Branch, New Jersey between June 24, 2022, and July 7, 2022.
