Bike to the Beach is a community of people who combine biking, purpose, and fun to inspire individuals to overcome obstacles through personal challenge and to inspire the larger community to raise funds and awareness for Autism, the most prevalent developmental disability in the world.

 

WHAT WE DO

Bike to the Beach is a 501(c)3 non-profit cycling organization that:

  • Hosts bike rides from urban areas to nearby beaches
  • Raises money and awareness for autism

Impacts the community through local programs

Our bike rides and community programs promote an active, socially and environmentally conscious community committed to achieving a healthier lifestyle and finding solutions for the millions affected by autism.

WHY WE DO IT

We ride because autism is the second most prevalent developmental disorder in the world today.

  • Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with autism
  • Autism affects 1 in 68 children

We ride for the love of cycling, and a healthy lifestyle.

  • 3 hours of biking per week lowers the risk of heart disease by 50%
  • Biking gets you outside, relieves stress and creates a way to spend time with family and friends

Who We Ride For

  • Person's Info10 Years ago, we found out our first born, Cameron was Autistic. It was the most crushing news any parent would have to face. But it is Cameron who lifted me up. His spirit and genuinely is unmatched....Last year, Cameron bravely met the challenge and became the youngest person EVER to complete the 106 mile Bike to the Beach Ride.

  • Person's InfoI ride for Scott, my brother, an adult with autism. When I crossed the finish line at B2B DC biking with Scott, in the Family Challenge I saw and felt first-hand all of my fundraising efforts come to fruition. Earlier in the summer Scott learned how to ride a bike in just 5 days at the B2B iCan Shine Bike Camp. Scott inspires me every day with his accomplishments, and when I ride, I ride for him.

  • Person's InfoMy autistic brother Brendan has never believed in the words "no" and "can't". As a result of the challenges he has overcome and continues to face on a daily basis, he has become an inspiration to many, in particular, my dedication to B2B. Hugging my brother after crossing the finish line makes all of my training and fundraising efforts worthwhile knowing my efforts aid research and help families such as mine to defeat autism. This is why I ride.
