From our partners at DC Bike Ride:
17 MILES. CAR-FREE STREETS.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, D.C. is becoming a better bike region everyday. We’ve been hinting about a brand new riding tradition coming to the city on May 22nd but we can no longer keep the secret to ourselves. We’re beyond excited to finally announce the Inaugural DC Bike Ride (DCBR)!
Our city has one of the biggest and most welcoming biking communities in the country, and you’re part of it. DCBR gives you the chance to connect with fun-loving active types, just like you! D.C.’s biking culture is something to be proud of – let’s celebrate life on two wheels!
Tell your riding buddies to get ready. The biggest cycling event of the year is almost here. Cruise the city at your own pace. Just you (and your friends), 17 miles of car-free streets and some of the most iconic sights in the world. Ride past everything from the Washington Monument and the Pentagon to the White House and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. All culminating with a huge post ride festival in front of the United States Capitol.
We’re bringing people together for the pure joy of biking in the city you love. Proceeds from DCBR will benefit WABA in their efforts to deliver meaningful street safety programs in support of D.C’s Vision Zero Campaign. Learn more here.
End your epic journey at the DCBR finish line festival in front of the Capitol on America’s Main Street with great food, music and drinks! More information to come on DCBikeRide.com.
GREAT WAY TO GIVE BACK
Spread the bike love and show #bikedc that you love it back. This ride event needs hundreds of volunteers to make DCBR a success and we can’t pull it off alone. Volunteers get a free t-shirt, drinks/snacks, and a free 24 hour Capital Bikeshare membership. Sign up to Volunteer.

WABA is a DC Bike Ride Founding Partner. This means the organizers of DCBR are paying for our promotion of the ride. In addition, DCBR organizers are making a substantial grant to support WABA’s advocacy work and community organizing for Vision Zero. So, while we are not directly involved in the operation of the event, we’re thrilled it’s taking place and invested in its success.
You should sign up. It’s going to be great.
