  • Ready, Set, SUP

    August 19, 2018 | Stadium Armory Metro Station 192 19th St SE, Washington, DC 20003

    We’ll be biking through the beautiful Anacostia River Trail to go stand up paddlboarding (SUP) on the Anacostia River at The Ballpark Boathouse. Stand up paddleboarding combines, kayaking, surfing and canoeing all in one. If you always wanted to try this, come join us. I’m going to be learning how to do it too so I can cross this off my bucket list. Afterwards, let’s grab ice cream at Jubilee! See you there.
