Bike4Chai is an exclusive cycling team of varying skill levels, who commit to train and raise money to benefit the children of Chai Lifeline.
Day 1: A breathtaking 100+ mile ride through the mountains and roads of Connecticut, New York and Northern New Jersey with approximately 7500 ft of elevation. The route will challenge even our more advanced riders, yet the SAG support and overstocked rest stops throughout the ride will make the ride doable and enjoyable for less experienced riders as well.
Day 2: After riding 65 miles and climbing approximately another 4500 feet, the Bike4Chai ride culminates in an extraordinary entrance at the world's greatest finish line; dancing and celebrating with the children of Camp Simcha Special!
The Finish Line: If not for Camp Simcha, it would be impossible for the children of Chai Lifeline to enjoy a summer camp experience. Camp Simcha is an amazing overnight summer camp designed to meet the medical and social needs of children and teens with cancer and other serious illnesses. They do everything their healthy peers do – and more. Helicopter & motorcycle rides, incredible concerts and interactive shows, and days jam-packed with activity give them the sense of normalcy missing in their everyday lives. The friendships and memories of camp life help them through the pain, isolation, and loneliness of illness and give them the courage to keep fighting the devastating effects of life-threatening illness or serious chronic and genetic conditions.
