The Chinatown Progressive Association plans the Chinatown Bike-a-thon as a green and healthy fundraiser to support youth leadership and a brighter future in Boston's Chinatown. The ride is approximately 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. 

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. 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.
