What initially began as a means of transportation was actually the setting of an epic story. Two friends (Ben and Joey) found themselves without access to a family car to take them from their homes in Washington DC to the Delaware Shore. No car, no problem! With two bikes, beach clothes in backpacks and the determination to join friends in celebrating their high school graduations, Ben and Joey biked 100+ miles to the beach.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder; the second most prevalent developmental disorder in the world today. Symptoms typically manifest during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Bike to the Beach raises funds and awareness, partners with the community, and inspires cycling enthusiasts to make an impact towards those affected by autism.

Bike to the Beach is not just the host of charity bike events, but a community made up of individuals, cyclists, local organizations, advocates, philanthropists, corporate companies and national partners – all who participate in our mission to promote bicycle riding, raise funds and make an impact on the community affected by autism. Our annual charity bike rides from urban centers to area beaches are made possible by our local partners who offer volunteers, marketing support and provide a local voice in the community.
Bike to the Beach is a cycling organization, a community with a love of cycling at heart. What may be a form of exercise for one, is a means of transportation for another, and an activity to share with friends and family for the next. 87 million Americans ride bikes. There are more bicyclists in the U.S. than skiers, golfers and tennis players combined. Bicycling gets you outside and is convenient, flexible and free.
