  • Bike to the Beach: Family Challenge

    Lewes, DE, US Bike to the Beach

    Bike to the Beach's Family Challenge is a fully supported, 10-mile Charity Cycling event from Lewes, DE to Dewey Beach, DE offered for the first time ever on August 1, 2014. The purpose of the ride is to educate our community about the benefits of cycling, build confidence and community among our youngest riders (including those on the autism spectrum), and to raise awareness and funding for autism.

    Through our partnerships with the Auburn School (Silver Spring, MD), Autism Delaware, and iCan Shine, we offer children affected by autism the opportunity to enjoy biking along the Delaware shore with their families and our community supporters. We end on the beautiful shores of Dewey Beach where we host finish line festivities for our riders, volunteers, and their friends and families. We encourage our riders to stay the weekend in Dewey Beach to enjoy the beach and attend our annual Saturday Crab Feast – a celebration of our ride, cause, and community.

    Whether you have a large family or a small family, older children or little ones who have just learned to ride, Bike to the Beach's Family Challenge is the perfect event for your family. Our ride is fully supported with rest stops, bike mechanics, Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles, and a route marked with turn-signs and road markings. All riders receive a custom Bike to the Beach jersey -- all you have to bring to the starting line is your road-ready bike, bike shorts, and helmet!

    Join us as we have fun, strengthen our communities, make friends, and bike to a beach destination, all while supporting the millions affected by autism, worldwide.
