50 States & 13 Colonies

50 States 2013 - Group shot

The 50 States & 13 Colonies Ride is WABA’s signature ride event and our most popular ride of the year. The 50 States Ride is an urban adventure by bicycle, taking riders for a 62-mile ride down all 50 state-named streets of the District and going through all 8 wards of the city. The 13 Colonies Ride is a 15-mile downtown DC bike ride on the streets named after the original 13 colonies.

Stay tuned for this year’s 50 States & 13 Colonies ride date to be announced in summer 2015.
