Cyclists will ride from NoMa to the Atlantic Ocean to promote autism awareness next month.

Nonprofit organization Bike to the Beach is slated to host its 10th annual charity bike ride on July 29. Locals can sign up for the 100-mile bicycle ride, which begins at Storey Park in NoMa, or the 60-mile ride, which begins at Wye Mills, Md.

Regardless of where cyclists start, they’ll finish the ride at Dewey Beach in Delaware.

More information about the event from Bike to the Beach:

Bike to the Beach DC is where our story began. What started in 1999 as two friends on a mission to make it to the Delaware Shore from their homes in Washington DC has evolved into the notable 501c3 organization of Bike to the Beach for Autism. In its 10th year Bike to the Beach has hosted 40 charity bike rides, raised $ for autism awareness all thanks to our community of driven individuals wanting to make a difference.

Whether you are an avid cyclists or a novice to biking, Bike the Beach offers a fully supported charitable biking event. The structure and and community has been designed to empower individuals to achieve their goals, whether it is for physical fitness, a personal challenge, to raise funds for autism awareness or all of the above.

This year we are offering 3 ride-distance options and multiple ways to participate. Challenge yourself with the 100 mile Century Ride from Washington, DC to Dewey Beach. Or opt for the new 60+ mile Metric Century ride option. Share the experience with your family – persons on the autism spectrum or children under the age of 15 in our 8-mile Family Challenge. Whatever the distance you chose, all B2BDC riders will end their ride at the oceanfront finish line in Dewey Beach, DE.

We look forward to celebrating you, honoring your achievement and applauding you in your efforts to support the millions affected by autism worldwide.
