This is the official Tumblr account of Bike to the Beach! Founded in 2006, the Bike to the Beach Foundation (B2B) is a 501(c)3 charity that raises money for Autism research, awareness, and outreach.
B2B inspires, empowers, motivates, and mobilizes communities to challenge themselves, to work as a team, and to change the world.
The Bike to the Beach Foundation (B2B) is a community driven non-profit that raises funds and awareness for charitable causes, while promoting fun and fitness through cycling. B2B was founded in Washington, DC in 2006 to inspire, empower, motivate, and mobilize members of the local community to challenge themselves, to work as a team, and to make a positive impact on society.
Now operating in Washington, DC and New York City, B2B’s efforts culminate annually in:
The traditional Bike to the Beach century-ride, from Washington, DC to Dewey Beach, DE;
The B2B NYC century-ride, from Manhattan to Westhampton Beach, NY. Since 2007, B2B’s annual century-rides and various other events have raised over $750,000 for Autism research and awareness. Perhaps more importantly, B2B has empowered almost 1,000 participants and volunteers to join the B2B team and become actively engaged in their community. Together, we know that the team potential far exceeds the sum of its parts. With B2B, there is no personal glory; the struggle and the triumph are shared by the team as a whole.
