Welcome to my fundraising page! I am very excited to be fundraising for making our roads safer for cyclists! Thank you for supporting my fundraising efforts.
Dogfish Head IPA
DOGFISH HEAD CRAFT BREWERY AND VELO AMIS PRESENT:
The inaugural Dogfish Head I.P.A. (I Pedal A-lot)!
We are partnering with PledgeReg - an online fundraising tool to make Delaware roads safer for cyclists. Each rider will be given a link to their personal PledgeReg fundraising page. You may also partner with others to create fundrasing teams. Urban Bike Project of Wilmington will be the beneficiary of all fundraising. Riders are encouraged to fundraise for this event, but it is not a requirement for participation.
This scenic ride begins and ends at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and travels throughout Sussex County, Delaware. The routes are mostly flat and almost entirely on rural roads. Distances are 60 Km, 90 Km, and 120 Km. The 120 Km route may include a small section of trail and includes a ferry crossing of the Nanticoke River. The course will be well-marked and aid stations will be well-stocked. However, you are ultimately responsible, so please download maps and cue sheets (available once online registration closes). Event promoters reserve the right to change the route.
A route reveal will coincide with registration opening at noon on May 16th. The event will support both Sussex Cyclists and Urban Bike Project.
Your entry includes not only a sweet bike route, but also an event water bottle, event cycling socks, tasty post-ride grub, live music, and two Dogfish Head craft beers (for riders over 21 only). You must register by August 1, 2018 to receive event socks. The Dogfish Head tasting room will be open after the event. DO NOT BRING ANY OUTSIDE ALCOHOL TO THIS EVENT.
EARLY-BIRD REGISTRATION FEE IS AVAILABLE FOR 1 MONTH ONLY! REGISTRATION FEE INCREASES TO $100 ON 6/15/18 AT 12:01 AM. DAY OF REGISTRATION $125 ONSITE
Remember, this is not a race. Enjoy a gran fondo style ride taking in the history and culture of the southern Delaware with your friends, family, and perhaps new friends you meet on the way.

Urban Bike Project supports Wilmington communities by providing access to bicycling as a healthy, affordable, and practical means of transportation and recreation. Every year we help over 1,000 adults and youth improve physical fitness, relieve stress, gain independence, and save money through bicycling.
In our communities we support…
People: Bicycling for transportation and recreation helps members of the community stay active and relieve stress, improving both physical and emotional health. It’s a fun activity that improves the quality of life for Wilmington residents.
Youth: Bicycling provides youth a means to stay active, enjoy extra independence and build confidence. Bicycle mechanics engage youth in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts.
Safe streets: By helping folks make the move from their cars to bicycles, we put more eyes and ears on Wilmington’s streets and make the city a safer place to live, work and play.
The economy: Bicycling helps to empower low income residents by providing access to employment and other positive opportunities. Bicycling provides reliable transportation at an affordable cost.
The environment: Bicycling instead of driving reduces fossil fuel emissions, making our air healthier to breath. Parking and other facilities for bicycles require less space, leaving more room for parks and permeable surfaces that can ease the burden on our water ways.
