The Chinatown Bike-a-thon is a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in our community. The ride is an 8 or 16 miles on the Paul Dudley White Bike Path along the Charles River.  It is a family-friendly event that promotes healthy living and culminates in a picnic on the Boston Common.  We are excited to continue to grow our Bike-a-thon and to grow our youth program with your help!


The funds raised from the Chinatown Bike-a-thon directly support Chinese Youth Initiative (CYI). CYI provides internship opportunities to high school aged youth from the Greater Boston area, combining an Asian American Studies curriculum with hands-on community service and organizing projects. For over more than 20 years, CYI youth have played crucial roles in the campaign for a Chinatown library, voter registration drives, support for immigrant workers’ rights, establishing the first Chinatown Youth Platform, advocating for public transit and much more.   This year, youth have already won a city-funded feasibility study for a Chinatown Library.  CYI graduates have gone on to become teachers, lawyers, planners, artists, community organizers, and entrepreneurs, all working to make a difference in Boston and in the world.


Ride as an invdividual or as a team.  Prizes will be awarded to riders and teams who raise the most!  Adult riders who raise $500 or more or high school student riders who raise $250 or more aka Super Golden Bike-A-Thon Champion Riders will receive a commemorative shirt!  The high school youth who raise the most will also be able ride the Golden Bike.


  All riders and volunteers will be treated to a picnic in Boston Common provided by some of the best restaurants in the area.  Register or donate now to start making a difference!


Borrowing a bike is available on a first come first serve basis.  If you would live to volunteer for the event instead go here and indicate in the notes what times you are available, t-shirt size, and if you are willing to drive a car.
