Chefs Cycle is a fundraising endurance event featuring award-winning chefs and members of the culinary community fighting childhood hunger outside the kitchen. Since 2015, the culinary talents who take part in Chefs Cycle raise critical funds, which No Kid Hungry uses to help communities across the country feed kids. (You can learn more about No Kid Hungry's work here.)

Chefs Cycle is returning to Santa Rosa for the fifth year, and we are excited to be back at The Flamingo Resort. Once again, we are excited to offer exceptional riding and reconnecting, all while raising critical funds for the No Kid Hungry campaign.

Event Dates:
● Monday, May 8 (Arrival Day, Opening Dinner)
● Tuesday, May 9 (Ride Day)
● Wednesday, May 10 (Ride Day)
● Thursday, May 11 (Ride or Volunteer Day, Closing Dinner)

The 2023 ride will offer two route options each day of either 100 miles or 100 km. Additionally, riders can choose to ride for all three days, or ride for two days and do a No Kid Hungry mission-centered volunteer activity on the third day.

As in years past, all meals and three nights of accommodations are provided (Mon/Tues/Weds nights). Riders staying a fourth night (Thursday, May 11) will need to work with the Chefs Cycle team to coordinate accommodations.

All riders commit to a fundraising goal of $7,500, and teams can raise money collectively as long as they raise enough to cover a total of $7,500 per rider. Chefs Cycle will provide fundraising support and toolkits to help each rider come as close to the fundraising goal as possible.

Space in the 2023 ride is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

If you cannot join us in person, the Virtual "Freestyle" ride is still an option. The Freestyle ride allows you to ride where you want, when you want, and whatever distance you want. We love seeing everyone out doing everything they can for No Kid Hungry. "Freestyle" rides have endless possibilities and are all under your control.
