Bike the Beach has been an annual fund-raiser for more than 25 years. This year's festivities will be held on Sunday, Sept. 23 at Jennings Beach in Fairfield. An additional option, Hike the Beach, a 5K fitness walk, is available for supporters who are non-cyclists. The walk is on a level route in the Fairfield beach area.
Bike/Hike the Beach is designed for bikers or walkers of all ages. The bike tours feature a variety of routes from leisurely to challenging, accommodating serious cyclists as well as families out for a Sunday ride. Riders start and finish at Jennings Beach, Fairfield, and may choose a 10, 20, 45, or 62-mile route. All routes are along the scenic CT coastline, with the longest passing through Fairfield, Southport, Westport, Norwalk, and Darien. The first 350 registrants will receive a souvenir T-shirt.
