When you're a part of Bike4Chai, you're a part of a dedicated team making a difference in the lives of children with serious illnesses. Your support helps Chai Lifeline, a leading international children's health support network, provide unparalleled assistance and  year-round services  to thousands of families confronting illness, crisis and loss.

Bike4Chai is a premier cycling event for cyclists of varying skill levels. The event will kick off on Wednesday morning, August 17, 2022 with a 50-mile endurance ride and an opening ceremony in the evening.  The ride begins in the early morning of August 18, 2022 with 60, 85 and 100- mile route options that will challenge even the most advanced riders. The continual support leading up to and through the event, combined with the pure joy that greets the riders as they cross The World's Greatest Finish Line at Camp Simcha (Chai Lifeline’s overnight summer program for children and teens with life-threatening and lifelong illnesses), encourages riders of every skill level throughout the ride.

Every rider is fully equipped with everything he needs for a successful ride: Bike4Chai Jersey, two insulated water bottles, Bike4Chai bags, and assorted Bike4Chai gear to meet every need throughout the ride.

Riders partake of wholesome, delicious catered meals throughout the event. The carefully curated menu keeps every rider satisfied and energized at every stage of the ride.

Humble Beginnings
In 2009, a solitary  rider named Dovid Egert, a devoted Chai Lifeline volunteer, raised $10,000 in donations sponsoring a 135-mile bike ride from his home in Lakewood, NJ to Camp Simcha in Glen Spey, NY. His revolutionary ride provided the children of Camp Simcha with the summer of a lifetime; it also sparked an enormous innovation in fundraising.
  
The next year, Yoel Margolese, along with lay leaders Alan Shamah, Abie Maleh and Elliot Zaks were joined by 38 inspired riders and established Bike4Chai. 
  
This summer, hundreds of riders will participate in the 13th Bike4Chai ride, spanning two states over the course of two days. They will experience a cohesive, motivational ride through 100 miles of breathtaking scenery and incredible unity, triumphantly crossing a finish line like no other.
