VIDEO: Bike 4 Chai 2014; Registration Opens Midnight Tonight With All New Route

Bike-4-Chai-Asbury-Park-2011-picVIDEO PROMO: At midnight tonight, Bike 4 Chai will be opening the registration for their annual bike tour – with an all-new route. The 2014 Bike 4 Chai tour, which will take place July 30th and 31st, 2014, will kick off in Piscataway, NJ heading to Scranton, PA and then to Camp Simcha in Glen Spey, NY.

The ride will be both gorgeous and challenging,” says Chai Lifeline. “With approximately 7,500 ft of elevation on day 1 while cycling through the Pocono Mountains, Bike4Chai will offer a challenge to the best of our riders. Yet, with our SAG system in place it will be doable for our more inexperienced riders as well.”

Day 2 offers some steep climbs, rolling hills and a 16 mile stretch of downhill riding.

“As everyone completes the 170 mile ride through 3 states and comes into Camp Simcha, the feelings of accomplishment and excitement are going to be palpable!”

Here are the links to the tentative routes: Day 1 – http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3793831, Day 2 – http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3793644.

The bike tour – the brainchild of Dovid Egert – during its first year raised $10,000. Last year, over $2.5 million was raised.

While the routes are exciting, challenging and fresh, we always need to remind ourselves why we do Bike4Chai,” says Chai Lifeline.

  1. I was considering giving it a shot, but I am backing out because it’s during the 9 days, I don’t think it’s appropriate.

    Looking out for a schedule change.

  2. Was also thinking of doing it but would not consider it because of the 9 days. I really think the folks at Chai Lifeline should reconsider the date. This can result in a lot of added revenue

  3. its amazing how close minded ppl r !!!!!!!!!!!!! #1 they have a ruv that they consult with and he gave a heter #2 they work around the camp schedule so that the kids that r sick nebach should have a good time and enjoy so before u jump to conclusion think a bit of what the point of this and and what they r trying to gain here

  4. Do u ask a rav for a heter to do drive ur car during the nine days??? Maybe ur kids ( if u have any) shudnt go on a bus during the nine days?? Did u get a heter for tht?!?

  5. Sorry, this is an event that is scheduled based around the Camp’s schedule, a camp for children who face challenges every day of their life. We are in it for the Mitzvah, the Chessed, the Bein Adam La’Chaveiro, I see no issue of nine days here, this is a Mitzvah’s Tzedaka Ride, we are shelichei Mitzvah! “V’Sheluchei Mitzvah Einum Nizokin”

  6. @Bike4Chai participant 5th time:

    Gut gezukt! You guys were awesome! Every single one of you riders have a special z’chus and a special place in Gan Eden.

    Pesach time, we work hard and are supposed to sweat cleaning and preparing for Pesach, it’s brought down that when one sweats cleaning for Pesach, he is sweating out the bad hashpaos and is somewhat of a kaporah for our avonos.
    I’d like to suggest the same here, the sweat that the riders sweat (and it’s lots of sweat) should be a kaporah for the avonos of Klal Yisroel. Maybe with the z’chus of this phenomenal organization, along with the participation of the hundreds of riders, Hashem will bring Moshiach tzidkeinu. At that time be”H, Camp Simcha will be a very pleasant memory in the minds of those special neshamos who were healed with his arrival and the geulah shelaimah.
