Having just completed the 300 mile Brita Climate Ride, which finished in Washington, D.C., I can tell you that it is one of THE most amazing cities to bike through! The combination of Rails To Trails routes and monumental buildings left me awestruck.
Here is a message from one of our partners:
“Bike DC is a noncompetitive bike ride held on Saturday, October 17, 2009. It is your one opportunity each year to enjoy our Capital, our community in a very special way by bicycle on car-free streets. See the expected in a new light: the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the White House, Embassy Row, the Pentagon, the Marine Corps and Air Force memorials. And explore the unexpected: the George Washington Parkway, Twin Oaks Estate, the Whitehurst Freeway and much more.
Join with your family and friends through a car-free District of Columbia and Arlington. There is a family friendly 12 mile route and a more challenging 25 mile option. Kids under the age of 15 ride for FREE!
Bike DC’s principle beneficiaries are the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and the American Heart Association. To register, visit the website www.bikedc.net”
