See what it's like to ride

For the past decade, Chefs Cycle has challenged award-winning chefs and culinary community members who want to push their limits by completing a three day, 300-mile ride while raising funds and awareness in support of No Kid Hungry.

About No Kid Hungry

No child should go hungry in America. But millions of kids in the United States live with hunger. No Kid Hungry is working to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive. Chefs Cycle provides an opportunity for chefs and culinary professionals to spearhead funding for No Kid Hungry’s mission and crucial work to end hunger in America. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty.

When No Kid Hungry introduced Chefs Cycle, I signed on – in fact, I haven’t missed a ride since the launch. It was appealing because I was seeking a healthier lifestyle – life in the kitchen with limited time for exercise takes a toll. When we climb these hills for Chefs Cycle you realize that the pain endured is making a difference in a child’s life and work every stroke of the pedals. It makes each mile worth so much more.

It was amazing to see everyone come together for such a great cause. We all have such busy schedules and crazy things happening in our venues every day. What we can accomplish united in our industry is setting the tone for our children's future. Hopefully it is also setting a new model on how restaurants are giving back more to their communities than ever before.

The idea of taking a few days off work to ride bikes under the guise of it being a charitable endeavor sounded perfect to me. That first ride, from Salinas, CA to Santa Barbara in June 2016 turned out to be the most challenging thing I had ever done on a bike. What I learned about myself, my teammates and about No Kid Hungry in those three days changed my life. I am a father of five children, and a chef whose mission in life is to feed people. I cannot imagine what it would be like to not be able to provide them with proper meals each and every day. Since then, Chefs Cycle has become something I look forward to and plan for every year. Raising funds to support No Kid Hungry and working to end childhood hunger in America has given me focus and purpose. Why do I ride? Because I can, and because together our voices are louder and our efforts stronger.
