Last year, with 150 riders, the non-profit organization raised a whopping $550,000.
This year, the organization is aiming for $1,000,000.
Chai Lifeline tells TLS the first 100 riders in this year’s fundraiser will be receiving a special free pair of Cycling Socks. Other incentives can be found on the Bike 4 Chai website.
Bike 4 Chai offers several different options for the bike-ride. Riders can choose from a 50, 75 or 100 mile ride the first day, relax in a beautiful resort overnight, and then ride the remaining 50 miles into camp.
The 150 mile and 2 day trip will kick off from the Berkeley Hotel in Asbury Park on Wednesday, August 8 at 7:00 AM, and conclude on August 9, 2012 at 4:00 PM.

Attn motorists: On behalf of the Lakewood riders, please slow down when passing a bicyclist and if possible allow for extra room between your vehicle and the right shoulder.
Looking forward to ride with all of you.
If you don’t own your own bike and practice regularly, there’s no way you’re gonna make it. This is a grueling ride.
