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.
