DC Bike Ride: Saturday, May 19, 2018

DC’s only close-road bike event, DC Bike Ride is 1 day of 20-miles and 0 cars.
It is a car-free celebration of bicycling in Washington, DC and the only day you can adventure around your city by bike with no cars.

DC Bike Ride is a fun, recreational ride for all biking abilities. The event is for all ages (three and up). The ride starts in West Potomac Park and finishes at the U.S. Capitol on 3rd St SW. Participants can see the city like never before as they take in 20-miles of car-free, safe streets and beautiful skyline views.


DC Bike Ride brings the DC, VA and MD biking communities together to celebrate life on two wheels. The event provides a safe and welcoming space to come together and celebrate something we all love: safe bicycling. A portion of proceeds benefit WABA and our Vision Zero advocacy and community outreach work to make streets safer for all. Learn more here.


Experience 20-miles of your city completely car-free. We work with the city to close down the roads so that you can have them all to yourself. DC Bike Ride gives you the opportunity to bike on streets, such as the Whitehurst Freeway, Rock Creek Parkway, the 14th Street Bridge and the 9th St SW tunnel, that you would otherwise never be able to experience on your bicycle. View the 2018 DC Bike Course Map here.

End your day of car-free, fun-filled streets at the DC Bike Ride Finish Festival in front of the U.S. Capitol on 3rd St SW with great beats, eats, and fun for all ages.


We can’t pull it off alone. This event needs many, many hands to make it a continued success! The DC Bike Ride is a significant fundraiser for WABA and we’d love your help to make it great! Volunteer here.

organizers of DCBR are paying for 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.
