finish linePHOTOS: The 100 bikers who departed Asbury Park yesterday for the 150 mile bike tour, have just arrived to Camp Simcha in Glen Spey, NY. The riders were greeted by a huge crowd of campers and staff members who loudly cheered for the riders who trekked the 150 miles to bring some happiness to the cancer-stricken patients.

The bike tour this year raised to date $517, 129.65, with one rider alone bringing in over $40,000. Last year’s tour raised about $200,000. Photo credits: Lakewood Shopper and G.E.R.

  1. The ride was dedicated l’ilui nishmas Yaakov ben Refoel Yitzchok, who was dedicated to helping others, especially the Chai Lifeline kids.

  2. Bikers: the World is Amazed by You!!

    I’m speechless, so I consulted my Thesaurus: Astonishing. Astounding. Staggering. Awe inspiring. And, yes, Amazing.
    Continue caring as you do, for your friends, even the ones you don’t yet know.

    May HaShem continue to bless you.

  3. We are very proud of our son/brother/uncle/hero/cousin DOVID EGERT. You did an amazing job raising all that money for chailifeline.

    The Egert Family

  4. I just spoke to my brother, he lives out west. He used to race bikes and has gone on many long term rides. I asked him if there is a difference between regular cotton shorts and bike shorts. He explained that the difference is that bike shorts have padding on the bottoms and some even between the legs. This is the real reason for wearing them. He said it really makes a difference when racing or going on a long trip.

  5. Chaim Alert! Chaim Alert!

    I don’t know. Their yellow is l’choirah so not matching that it wpould be assur to wear throughtout the year poshut altz kovod habrios. Do you really think tens of children needing a refuah that are cheering these non-tztzis wearing, funny looking shorts mentchen, who certainly never asked a shailoh, feel ggod? Ken nisht zein! We must pu t a stop to this hoilelus! A shanda! A charpa! A boosha! Where is the tzelem elokim? Oy vey! Oy vey! That $517,000 could have been used instead to support my shver who finally wants to retire and learn again!

    Oh, you will have to excuse my ranting, my latest model Blackberry with the 5G network is buzzing and I have to pick it up. It is grada mamash a mechaya – the Internet on this phone works so fast that I minimize my bittul Torah! Which is WAY more choshuv than a bunch of funny looking bike riders!

    WAY TO GO YOEL AND COMPANY! MY BROTHER IS ACTUALLY A COUNSELOR AT CAMP SIMCHA! WE ARE PROUD OF HIM, WE ARE PROUD OF YOU AND THE BIKERS AND DON’T FORGET – WAVE YOUR FLAG BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN OF CAMP SIMCHA!!!

    And to Hades with ‘chaim’…

  11. I don’t know if this is true but I heard that Shaya Luzer Brachfeld, the Speedster, was going so fast, that one of escorting cops pulled him over & almost gave him a speeding ticket !! Another cop told him if he keeps up his torrid pace, he’s gonna make him put on a seatbelt !! Special thanx to Eli Zaks, Shmuel Lubin & P’sachya Skaist for adding a special ruach to the whole trip. Great job, boys ! Tizku L’mitzvos. Dudi B.
