PPTC Lewes Delaware Weekend 2018

April 27-29, 2018

Beacon Motel
514 E. Savanna Rd.
Lewes, DE 19958

Get an early jump on spring by joining us for a weekend of cycling at the beach. Lewes is a small, picturesque, and historic town near Rehoboth Beach. This weekend is noted for its sociability and ease in meeting new people, so come alone or with a friend or spouse. Attendance is limited to 85 people so sign up early to reserve your spot.

Rides range in length from 20 to 65+ miles and are flat, although there are usually headwinds at the beach. Many rides visit nearby wildlife refuges, Nassau Valley Vineyard, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and remote beaches. We also have rides that stay east of Route 1 and tour Lewes or travel to Rehoboth Beach via bike paths. Some of the rides begin at the Beacon Motel and some have a remote start after a short drive to a beach or nearby town, depending on the rides you choose.

PRICE: PPTC member price for the weekend is $275 for single occupancy; $430 for a double room ($215/person); and $540 for a triple room ($180/person); non-members add $25. The prices are the same for non-cycling spouses or guests. If you are coming alone but would like to share a room, we can assign a roommate (double occupancy only). Hotel rooms have two double beds, or a queen bed, or a king bed. All have refrigerators. The Beacon Motel does not allow pets.
