From our partners at DC Bike Ride
DC Bike Ride will be here before you know it! The streets will be closed and you will be cruising traffic-free through DC/VA. Don’t miss out! There’s no better way to see the city and spend some quality time with your friends and family. There’s still time, Early Bird rate will end 2/28. Save $10 before price increases on March 1. Register today!
We have made several improvements to DC Bike Ride to enhance the experience for all of our riders. Our new “point-to-point” course features a new start location in West Potomac Park, just south of the Lincoln Memorial, and the same finish line as last year on Pennsylvania Avenue in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol. With the new start, we can release corrals more slowly to reduce congestion on the course! Not only will the course be longer, the start will be smoother and we’ve also eliminated the bottleneck near the 14th St. Bridge.
With our partner, WABA, we are proud to introduce the new Sponsor-a-Rider Program for 2017. Gearin’ Up Bicycles has just been confirmed as one of the non-profit partners of the program. Thanks to your generous donations, we will be sponsoring 10 riders from their organization!
So far, we have received 312 donations totaling $2,200 and 46 scholarships! We are working closely with WABA to reach a fundraising goal of $4,800 and 100 scholarships. Many thanks to all of you that have joined in our efforts to spread the bike joy!
