PPTC Lewes Weekend 2020


April 24-26, 2020

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 80 people so sign up early to reserve your spot. Registration is online only via the PPTC website.

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, 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.  Depending on the ride you choose, some begin at the Beacon Motel and some have a remote start after a short drive to a beach or nearby town.

PPTC member price for the weekend is $295 for single occupancy and $225 per person for doubles; 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). If you are interested in a triple room, please contact Cindy Marisch for pricing and availability. Hotel rooms have two double beds, or a queen bed, or a king bed. All have refrigerators. The Beacon Motel does not allow pets.

The cost of the weekend includes the following:

  • Nice motel two blocks from the center of town and .4 mile from the beach.

  • Locked storage room for bikes or keep in your car.

  • Cue sheets will be available at the Beacon Motel starting Friday at noon.

  • Rides of various lengths available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

  • Ice Cream Social/Welcome Party Friday night at the motel.

  • Breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning at the motel.

  • Lunch fixings for a bag-lunch on Saturday to take with you on the ride.

  • BYO Wine and Beer party on Saturday at the motel before dinner.  Snacks provided.

  • Buffet dinner Saturday night in downtown Lewes, a short walk from the motel (cash bar available).

  • Free late checkout on Sunday with advance notice to hotel personnel.

Your hosts this year are Cindy Marisch and Bettina Myers. Cindy is responsible for registration and cue sheets.  If you have questions about your registration, please contact Cindy at or 571-243-4576. Bettina is responsible for food catering.  If you are vegetarian, vegan, or have any other special dietary needs, please contact Bettina at least two weeks prior to the ride weekend at or 202-577-5278 so we can accommodate your needs accordingly.

Note: Your registration will be under the PPTC group and not your individual names. The cost for the weekend includes food and lodging and cannot be separated. Registration at the Beacon for this weekend must be completed through PPTC online, not directly through the Beacon. If you have questions about the Beacon Motel itself, please check their website
