The 33rd Annual River To Sea Bike Ride will take place Saturday May 6th, 2023. This event is a 20-mile bike ride along the historic route of the Wilmington Beach Car Line.
Purchase t-shirts and stickers with Eventbrite link.
The event has now reached capacity and online registration is closed. However, same-day registration is still an option, and will have a $5 charge. Exact change is required.
If you ordered a t-shirt/sticker but could not preorder a general admission ticket, you will still need to sign up for the ride on the day of the event.
- Helmets are required!
- Check-in is from 6:15 am to 6:55 am at the intersection of Princess Street and Second Street in downtown Wilmington.
- Bathrooms downtown will be limited as most businesses will not be open yet, so it is advisable to go before you arrive. There will be port-a-johns at the stopping point in Wrightsville Beach.
- Cyclists will depart at 7:00 am from downtown and arrive at Wrightsville Beach Park close to 8:15am. There is a 15-20 minute break at Wrightsville Beach Park, where bananas and waters will be available, before beginning the second half of the ride back downtown.
- After the event, the WMPO will host a table at the Riverfront Farmers Market where we will sell any remaining t-shirts and stickers.
All age groups and experience levels of cyclists participate in this ride but must be able to ride 20 miles at a casual pace. Helmets are required and cyclists should give their bicycle a thorough safety inspection prior to the event. Review bicyclist hand signals so you can use them during the ride when turning, slowing, or stopping.
