Jeremy Chernikoff

I’m not sure what I was thinking.

I remember last year’s ride. I felt great as I started off on a beautiful morning - blue skies, open roads, clean mountain air. I stopped on a hill to take a drink. Then I stopped on a hill to get some shade. And then I stopped a few more times. (See where I’m headed?)

Many hours, breaks, miles and one accidental detour later, I did eventually find my way to the finish line.

So yes, I have signed up for second year to ride 55 miles with team Bike NCSY on Sunday, June 24 in the Hudson Valley. This year, I am going in with slightly more experience, a slightly diminished fear of hills (very slight) and an incredible amount of excitement to get back out there.

Most importantly, I am excited to help raise some money for an incredible cause. Bike NCSY will help teens afford their gap year experience in Israel. In the Orthodox Jewish world, a year of Torah study in Israel has become the standard, but many are unable to afford the privilege. NCSY provides kids who otherwise could not attend the dream of spending a year in the Jewish homeland - something everyone should have the opportunity to experience.

I would love for any and all of you to join me for the ride - you can choose distances between 15 and 100 miles so there’s something for everyone. If you cannot join me on the day of the ride I do hope I can count on your support to help me reach my goal. As someone who works for the OU and is involved with the marketing of this campaign it would be truly sad if I can’t raise a few shekels for an incredible cause - so please help me look good by giving early and often - thanks!
