Bike to the Beach (B2B) started when two friends, Benjamin Dalley and Joey Schmitz, biked their way from Washington, DC, to Bethany Beach, Delaware. Robby Walsh currently serves as the Executive Director of the organization, while founders Benjamin Dalley and Joey Schmitz still serve as board members.
Passion for cycling coupled with a cause worth fighting for is what prompted the formation of Bike to the Beach (B2B). Years later, it became an advocacy organization with many supporters in Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, New York, NY and Boston, MA.
This nonprofit organization seeks to promote biking as a viable way of commuting and reducing carbon emission. In addition, B2B is a firm supporter of Autism Speaks in its bid to change the landscape for people struggling with autism. Bike to the Beach believes that it can promote an active, socially and environmentally conscious community committed to a healthier life and finding solutions for the millions affected by Autism though its events and our partnerships with Autism Speaks and local Autism charities.
Through Bike to the Beach’s pro-active network, it continues to organize events with the goals of educating urbanites on the several benefits of biking and supporting those who suffer from autism.
