Bike to the Beach 2021 -- xMinds Team Volunteers

  • 30 Jul 2021
  • 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM
  • Kensington, MD and Dewey Beach, DE



If you want to support Team xMinds, but you don't want to ride a bike -- we're counting on you to join us as a volunteer!  

Bike to the Beach is an annual fundraiser where local autism organizations raise money by fielding a team to ride from Union Station in DC to Dewey Beach, DE. That's 100 miles. If that's more that you're up for, lots of team members join at the 50 mile starting line or just for the last 25 miles. You have options!

xMinds has participated in this ride for the last 3 years and it raised about half our annual budget before Covid. This year, to maintain social distance, the organizers have limited the number of bike riders to 100. If you want to ride, join Team xMinds here. 

If riding in the hot summer sun for 25, 50 or 100 miles isn't your thing ... we encourage you to join us volunteers! 

xMinds volunteers are responsible for creating one great rest stop somewhere along the route. We'll provide snacks, drinks and encouragement for the riders who come through on their way to Dewey Beach. 

Here are the different ways you can contribute to our effort as a volunteer: 

  • Donate snacks
  • Donate drinks
  • Set up, take down, or staff the rest stop for a few hours on July 30. 
  • Create xMinds signs so riders know who is hosting the rest stop

We know you'll have fun staffing the rest stop on Friday, July 30, but if you can't join us, your donations ahead of time will be very much appreciated.  

Just sign up now, and we'll meet in the spring (virtually probably) to hear what you would like to do. 

Students can earn SSL hours!

In the past this event has been a lot of fun, and lots of families who participated enjoyed staying over and recovering on the beach the next day.

Join the fun and help make this a successful fundraiser for xMinds!
