Ocean to Bay Bike Tour Cue Sheets:
The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce is very excited to announce the relaunch of the 31st Annual Ocean to Bay Bike Tour for October 16 & 17, 2020. The Ocean to Bay Bike Tour is an annual event that brings 2,500 cyclists of all ages to the Quiet Resorts area during the shoulder season. The Ocean to Bay Bike Tour was postponed from the original April 24 & 25 dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The economic impact of COVID-19 has disrupted The Quiet Resort business community. The mission of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce is to develop and implement destination events, participate in advocacy efforts, and provide opportunities for networking, marketing, and education with the goal of improving member success and enhancing the quality of life in the Quiet Resorts. The award-winning event, presented by the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, offers cyclists a 30-, 50- and Metric Century (62.5) ride on flat terrain. All routes will have the option to participate in person or choose a virtual option and complete your selected route on your own. There will also be a 10-mile Friday Coastal Cruise starting in downtown Bethany Beach and riding north to the Big Chill Beach Club.
