Riding bikes at the beach is the best, especially in the morning when it is still cool and there’s a nice breeze blowing in off of the ocean. Each summer my entire family gathers for an amazing week of bonding and togetherness at Dewey Beach, Delaware. We cram way too many people into the same smallish, outdated, slightly grimy house each year, swearing that the next year we’ll upgrade. We never do though. Our beach shack, though a tad unappealing, is cheap, indestructible, and the kids love it.
This past summer we brought our bikes with us for the first time. My 13-year-old niece pretty much lives at the beach all summer so she served as our own personal tour guide. This was especially handy because she knows all the best trails, shortcuts, breakfast shops, and bakeries. Each morning she had a new adventure planned for us. She took us up and down the Rehoboth boardwalk, past all the multi-million dollar mansions, and along some beautiful wooded trails.
Our bikes and the beach shack are both ready for another fun reunion this summer!
