If you’ve ever wanted to bike around DC without having to worry about cars, now’s your chance! The DC Bike Ride, an annual scenic cycling event around the city, is coming up fast and provides riders a car-free experience around town.
On Saturday, May 19, cyclists in the DC area will have access to 20 miles of car-free roads. The DC Bike Ride runs from West Potomac Park (100 West Basin Drive SW) to a finish line location between the Capitol Building and the National Mall.
The ride raises funds for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA). Along with helping organize the event, the group advocates to make cycling a better – and safer – experience for everyone in the area. Riders get to enjoy an unparalleled experience as they ride through the city, across the Potomac, and past the many monuments and memorials that the DC area has to offer.
Best of all, once the ride is over, cyclists get to unwind at Finish Festival. This evening of music takes place at – you guessed it – the finish line. This year’s musical guests are Trouble Funk and DJ Little Bacon Bear. For more information or to register, visit https://dcbikeride.com/.
