PHOTOS & VIDEO [UPDATED 10:15 AM] At 7:30 AM sharp, a ribbon was cut for 200 bikers making their way up to Camp Simcha, raising over $1.6 million.
The bikers will ride for two days with a sleep-over on the way, ending the tour in Camp Simcha in Glen Spey, New York.
Dovid Egert, the lone rider in 2009, was among the 200 riders this year.
“It all started four years ago, I was little nuts in my head!”, says Dovid. “I decided to bike up to Camp Simcha, because the camp said there are no bikes on the bus. I said no problem, so I biked up to camp without the bus!” That year, Dovid raised $10,000 for the camp for ill children.
Like they say, the rest is history.
The bike ride then went viral, and by the next year there 40 bikers, and last year 150 bikers.
The bikers wer sent off with a medical staff as well as with Hatzolah and Chaveirim volunteers. TLS.

Mr. Conservative. Last I checked cars are not supposed to pass a bicycle that’s on the road.
Thanks for showing your true face, you only write what/when YOU think is right/wrong with complete disregard to the law but totally biased.
Mr Conservativ, last I checked its illegal to pass a bicyle driving on the road.
Thanks for showing your true face. You only write what you think is right or wrong with complete disregard for the law but totally biased.
Mr conservative you are out of line this time! The cars should slow down to pedestrians and bike riders alike.
There were so many “shorts” on the ride, they had to bring an electrician along!
We’re rooting for you, ELI FELDMAN!!!!
