Event – Bike & Hike 2022

Thank You!

Despite the rain and the unfortunate need to cancel the motorcycle and bicycle rides, thanks to generous sponsors, donors and participants the COBYS annual Bike & Hike raised the second highest amount in the event’s 26 year history.

Thanks to early donors, the Kickstart Fund met and exceeded the goal of $25,000, reaching a total over $26,000, providing a solid footing for the event where over $160,000 was donated and pledged to help COBYS continue to offer services with compassion, dignity and hope – the COBYS Difference.

Together, we are making a life-altering difference in the lives of the kids and families we serve.

You can fulfill your Bike & Hike pledge by credit card here. Please choose Bike & Hike from the Gift Designation options and also provide the person/family being sponsored under the Additional Comments section. Thank you for your gift!

What to enjoy at the Bike & Hike
For our 26th Bike & Hike, we continue the time honored and appreciated bicycle and motorcycle rides and the walk through beautiful Lititz, PA. But to sweeten the event we’ve decided to kick up the ice cream social with a bigger and better Incredible Ice Cream Celebration! Come see and taste the delicious changes.



What’s better than ice cream? More ice cream and more toppings! COBYS is piling on when it comes to ice cream at the Bike & Hike this year. We introduce the new and improved Incredible Ice Cream Celebration. Create a delicious dairy dessert made with Fox Meadows vanilla and/or chocolate ice cream and your choice of toppings. What a great way to celebrate you and COBYS!
