Every Mile Counts

Join us on a mission to make a difference for everyone who breathes. This cycling event is perfect as a personal challenge, an opportunity to explore your community, and a way to stay active. The in-person and Ride Your Way options both have amazing support throughout the event! We provide superb organization, beautiful routes, numerous online social events, regular training challenges, excellent fundraising support, and more!

The Reach the Beach OR will celebrate its 31st anniversary in 2021. Our mission is in hyper-drive as we face down COVID-19 through our COVID-19 Action Initiative. The dollars our riders are raising are making a difference at this critical time.

Reach the Beach OR encourages our cyclists to stay active and enjoy time on their bike (practicing safe social distancing) while supporting the work of the American Lung Association. Please review the details below regarding how you can participate.

  • Ride Your Way Plan your own ride on a route and date that works best for you. There is no registration fee for Ride Your Way participants and you are eligible for all the same incentive gift awards as those who ride in-person on May 15th, starting with the finishers medal and tee-shirt for raising just $150 for the American Lung Association.
  • Ride in Person - by selecting one of our four exciting route options. Please note that all of our routes may be subject to a maximum capacity cap due to local and state COVID-19 restrictions and ALA safety protocols. If we are required to limit participation on any or all routes, priority will be given to the highest overall fundraisers, riding as part of a team or individually. A registration fee applies to all in-person registrants and there is a minimum fundraising requirement of $150. Incentive Gifts begin at $150 and will include a Reach the Beach Finishers’ medal and 2021 tee-shirt. (2020 Reach the Beach Registrants receive free registration for 2021 in person ride)
