VIDEO: 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.
is there a training program?
there are already 28 riders signed up on the http://www.bike4chai.com web site !!
so what time will the shiur by Rabbi Fried be on August 4th?
Are those $$ pledged or in the bank.
In the bank
On the bike4chai website it says that it will take place on aug 3-4th. Not as stated above aug 4-5th. Which one is correct?
They are having it during the 9 days?
3rd and 4th is correct.
Are women allowed to participate?
Unfortunately, there will not be any female riders. Possibly next year, but I highly doubt it.
Why would they choose to do this during the 9 days??
Rabbi Sruli Fried keep up all the great work your doing for chai life line YOU ARE A TRUE TZAADIK
