This year, know that whatever route you ride, you'll be supporting the creation of the Grove Park Canal Access in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Rehoboth Beach and Lewes community leaders have long envisioned canal access points on the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal, from which boat passengers may safely access both communities' downtown areas. The access will also allow paddlesport enthusiasts (kayaks/SUPs) to enjoy the canal. Riders on the 75 Minute route will enjoy a rest stop at the future site of the dock. Thanks for your support!
The Dogfish Head tasting room will be open after the event. No outside alcohol allowed.
What you'll get:Your entry includes a sweet bike route, stocked aid stations, an event long sleeve shirt (as long as you register by 7/15), a stainless steel tall boy beer can (see below), tasty post-ride grub, live music, and two Dogfish Head craft beers (for riders over 21 only - must have ID).
