DC Bike Ride is the region’s only car-free, closed-road recreational bike ride. Register now before the price increases on May 1.
Save even more when you use the promo code POP18 for $10 off standard registration. Kids ages 3 to 7 are always free and youth ages 8 to 17 are always half-price.
Join us on Saturday, May 19 for a fun, recreational, family-friendly bicycle adventure. DC Bike Ride celebrates bicycling as a form of healthy living, fitness, transportation and fun.
Your registration includes access to the closed-road DC Bike Ride course that starts in West Potomac Park — this is the only time Washington, DC closes roads for bicycles!
The 20-mile ride will feature on-course entertainment, music and rest stops as well as a short-cut to the finish that offers a 6-mile course (in case you get tired, are riding with little ones or get hungry for some snacks).
The ride ends with a Finish Festival party with beats, eats and activities for all-ages at the National Mall in front of the U.S. Capitol. DC’s legendary go-go band Trouble Funk and DJ Little Bacon Bear will be performing at the festival. Participants also get a limited edition DC Bike Ride water bottle.
The ride raises support for the Washington Area Bicyclist Association’s work to make streets safer for all roadway users. The event has committed more than $100,000 in support over three years to WABA for street safety neighborhood programs.
No bike? No problem! We partner with Bike and Roll DC to bring you easy bike rentals.
Make DC Bike Ride your favorite spring tradition and join the ride today. Don’t forget to use the promo code POP18 for $10 off standard registration now through April 30.

Thanks to all who emailed the big Petworth development news from the Washington Business Journal:
“A judge for the U.S. District Court for D.C. on Friday sided with the owner of a Shell gas station who wants to redevelop the property into a 57-unit residential project in Petworth.”
Pete’s posts their farewell on Facebook:
“Dear Loyal Customers,
Thank you for allowing us to serve the Columbia Heights and surrounding neighborhoods for the last ten years! Please reach out to any of our other locations for your catering needs.”
Ed. Note: Wawa will be taking over the space, as well as the adjacent Five Guys and Potbelly’s space.
Does anyone know what’s going on with the monstrous wall they’re building on the sidewalk along D street and Louisiana on the north side of the Capitol, blocking pedestrian use (and for how long it will be there)?”

I recently noticed new signs up on the north side of the 1400 block of Morse St. NE that say “Resident Parking Only – 6PM to 3AM – Resident or Visitor Permit Required” threatening a tow and $250 fine.
What gives? I’ve previously lived in Adams Morgan, Mt. Pleasant, U Street, and Petworth, and only saw zone permit parking only or 2 hour limit enforced 24/7. Is this a new kind of restriction, and if so, why those hours?”
This rental is located at 1149 Abbey Place, NE. The Craigslist ad says:

I’m excited to let you know about an update to the campaign to get meal delivery apps to service east of the river communities: Postmates has expanded its delivery zone to serve the entire District! Latoya is now turning her focus to getting the attention of DoorDash and Caviar, so she’s organizing a “Day of Action for Equal Service” this Friday, 4/27. She’s asking people to join the Facebook Event to stay updated on what this coordinated action will be. “
