Fort Dupont Weekly Group Rides in August

  • Fort Dupont Visitor Center

    Fort Dupont Drive SE, Washington, DC (map)

    38.879902 -76.956284

  • In August the Fort Dupont group rides will be held every week instead of every two weeks. The rides will also be held on Wednesday instead of Tuesdays.

    I lead this rides in Fort Dupont along the hiker-biker trail and other trails in Fort Dupont. The rides is August will be held on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th starting  at 6:00 PM.

    We meet in the main Fort Dupont parking lot behind the visitor center on Fort Dupont Drive SE. This is about 0.25 miles from the intersection with Randle SE/Minnesota Ave SE.

    The map below shows the best riding route from Capitol Hill. When you are on Pennsylvania, be careful crossing the ramps to the Anacostia Freeway. I cross them nearly every day on my way to work in Suitland, and cars here are not too aware of bikes.

    Terrain:
    Intermediate. There are exposed roots, log and waterbar crossings, loose gravel and some climbs that may be challenging to beginning riders.

    Pace:
    Casual to slightly moderate. This pace will definitely be casual; nobody will be left behind or quilted into going faster than they want. When possible, a second leader may take a faster group up ahead. This is a social ride designed to get people out on these poorly known trails.

    Requirements:
    Even through the trails are not super technical, you will need a mountain bike or a cyclocross bike in good working order. All riders will be required to wear a helmet and sign a waiver. This is a MORE MTB group ride so everybody has to sign a waiver.
