PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER TIME for July and August rides - meet at 9:30, leave at 10.
This is a great, close-in 21 mile ride (with a couple shorter options) that is partly on beautiful, closed-to-cars Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park. There's a lot of shade on this ride. Pass through streams, the National Zoo, Washington Harbor in Georgetown, Fletchers Boat House and Bethesda.
After the ride, Bike & Brunch will meet for Brunch at Parkway Deli. This ride is usually well-attended, mostly flat and lots of fun. Again, note that the ride meets at 9:30 AM and leaves promptly at 10:00. For directions, click on the address for the Parkway Deli above.
Come join Bike & Brunch for this fun ride.
All riders must wear a helmet and sign a Bike & Brunch release form.
You should also bring plenty of water for the ride, money and identification. Recommended gear includes bicycle gloves, a spare tire, a pump, weather appropriate clothes and an odometer.
