Where can I park?
All parking in downtown Bethany Beach is free the weekend of the Ocean to Bay Bike Tour. There is no designated parking for event participants.
Will there be on-site registration?
There may be on-site registration available for the Friday Coastal Cruise on October 16th, however, this is not guaranteed. There will be no on-site registration available on October 17th.
There will be NO DAY-OF registration on April 27th.
What do I need for packet-pick up?
All participants must show a photo ID and provide a signed, wet-ink waiver at packet pick up. Waivers can be printed in advance or signed on-site.
If picking up for a team, or for a friend, please show their photo ID, either the original or a photo (a picture of their ID on your phone will work), and turn in their signed wet-ink waiver.
Why do I need a wet-ink waiver?
We understand that turning in a wet-ink waiver can be cumbersome; however, our insurance provider requires it. If you do not provide a legible, wet-ink waiver, you will not be covered by our event insurance, and therefore will not receive your bib.
Waivers will be available to be signed on-site or print it in advance here.
What does my packet include?
Your registration packet will include:
- Safety pins
- Route Map & Cue Sheet
- Safety information
- Continue the Tour Vouchers (attached to bib)
- Continue the Tour information and weekend event details!
You will also receive your commemorative event shirt at packet pick up. Once you have picked up your packet, we cannot hold on to participant’s shirts during the ride. If picking up your packet the morning of October 17th, it is recommended you leave enough time to store your shirt and any additional items in a secure location.
