Bike 4 Chai Announces Summer 2011 Bike Tour

bike_4_chai_riders_tlsVIDEO: Bike 4 Chai has just announced its 2011 Summer Bike Tour schedule. The bike tour – which gained State-wide recognition last year – will again be biking from Lakewood to Camp Simcha in Glen Spey, NY in support of Chai Lifeline’s seriously ill children. 

In 2009, one biker – Dovid Egert – who enjoyed long bike rides made the trip to the camp in attempt to raise money for the camp, and raised $10,000 for the cause. But then, it went viral.

Last year, 40 Bike 4 Chai cyclists made the 135 mile trip from Lakewood to Camp Simcha, and raised nearly $200,000 to benefit the campers. The ride culminated with a triumphant entrance into Camp Simcha Special where the campers performed a spectacular choreographed wheelchair dance to welcome the riders.

This year’s tour will take place on August 3rd and 4th, and is expected to attract dozens of new cyclists. Since announcing it today, over 10 riders have already signed up to join the tour.

Further details of the trip will be posted as they become available. TLS.
