Community Benefits from the Ocean to Bay Bike Tour

a group of people holding a large check

On May 30th, the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated the 2023 Ocean to Bay Bike Tour’s community impact and presented checks to event beneficiaries. This Annual ride brings thousands of cyclists from all over the country to the Quiet Resorts. This year, over 180 volunteers and over 30 local businesses & organization sponsors participated in the event.

As a result of the success of the Ocean to Bay Bike Tour, over $46,000 was spent with local business partners and an additional $11,200 was contributed to charitable organizations and local emergency services.

Event Beneficiaries and Contributions Received:

For their continued support and service during the Ocean to Bay Bike Tour, the Bethany Beach, Millville, and Selbyville Volunteer Fire Companies received $750. The Christian Conference Center, the primary event location, received a contribution of $300, and $500 was raised for the Cancer Support Community of Delaware.

The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays received $1,500.  A portion of the proceeds of the Ocean to Bay Bike Tour was donated to two local, non-profit organizations: Contractors for a Cause and the Justin W. Jennings Foundation. They each received a check for $4,080, totaling $8,160.

The Chamber is grateful for all the event sponsors and volunteers who helped make this event possible. Save the date for next year’s Ocean to Bay Bike Tour which will take place on April 26-27, 2024. Visit
