ChefsCycle Ride Info from Lee Gottheimer + Raffle Prize

May 26th, 2016

Many of you who have been a member of BikingLasVegas.com from the inception know Lee Gottheimer. Lee has been on many BLV rides, charity teams like the BikeMS and Tour de Cure, and has helped to organize fun, impromptu rides for the group.

Lee is a cyclist, but also a very good chef!

Lee has found a ride that is not only challenging, but rewarding. He would like to introduce you to it, and… if you help him raise funds for the event, he will enter you into a raffle to win a PRIVATE DINNER EVENT for you and three friends. All you have to do is donate $100 or more at his chefscycle page and he will place you in a random drawing to win a dinner for four. The dinner will be a home cooked meal for up to 4 people. On the menu is caprese salad, shrimp scampi, and tiramisu. Yum!!!!

Here is Lee’s post inviting you to learn about #ChefsCycle:

#chefscycle is a 3-day, 300 mile bicycle ride that starts June 27 in Carmel, California and ends June 29 in Santa Barbara. Over 150 chefs and restaurant industry professionals will be riding to raise awareness of childhood hunger in America.

The ride is being supported by No Kid Hungry - Share Our Strength, a national organization that provides school breakfast programs, summer meals when children are out of schools, and additional programs for food banks such as Three Square of Las Vegas (https://www.nokidhungry.org/files/pdf/2015/Summer/State_One_Pagers/Nevada-State_One-Pager.pdf).

The connection between chefs, cycling, and charity makes a lot of sense. First, given that our work week usually averages 60-100 hours, we certainly know about physical endurance. Second, our weekends usually don’t fall on Saturday/Sunday, so we can be seen mid-week, riding the Red Rock Loop or the River Mountain Trail, enjoying the solitude of a ride outside and away from the confines of a hot, noisy kitchen.

And finally, all of us in the industry feel a responsibility to feed people - and that includes spending time at food banks, participating in culinary events that give back to the community, and educating our friends/families how to prepare meals for themselves at home.

I first found out about this ride while following a few California chefs’ instagram pages. It just sounded too good to let them have all the fun. So I contacted the program director and signed up. Currently there are only two of us riding from Las Vegas, and I’m the only chef. So we need to make an impact!

I am asking for your help to make a difference.

With over 20,000 miles on my bike - many of them riding with bikinglasvegas.com members - I have never completed 3 centuries in 3 days. I know I can do it, with a little training. But that’s only part of the challenge.

The organization has given me the task of raising $7,500 before the end of June. That is a lot of money! But of course it is all going towards ending childhood hunger for 1 in 5 children across the country (1 in 4 in Nevada!).

Please if you can, I’m asking for your donation.

-in case you want to post it to your facebook/twitter/instagram feed and help me get the word out.

Thank you guys. See you on the road,

-Lee Gottheimer
