Women & Bicycles: Learning About Nachotchtank Lands

Saturday, November 30, 2019, 9:00 AM — First and East Capitol St SE

Ride Tags: DC / Free /

As a part of WABA’s Women and Bicycles program, this ride is only open to anyone who identifies as women/trans/femme. Not you? Lots of other WABA events at waba.org/fun. Know someone who should come? Please share this event with them!

Join Women & Bicycles for a morning outside! To honor Native American Heritage Month, we are riding to some of the known sites of the Nachotchtank nation before heading to the National Museum of the American Indian.

Additional Details:
The ride will be at a social, no-drop pace and about an hour of riding with lots of stops on mostly trail with some road riding. We are meeting at First and East Capitol St SE and ending close by at the National Museum of the American Indian. Please bring enough water, snacks and weather appropriate clothing to keep you going – we will be outside until the play at 11:30 am. Also, please bring a bike lock to secure your bike at the Smithsonian and helmets are required by our insurance. (Don’t have a helmet? Email us for a loaner.)

Are you Pistcataway or have other knowledge, including lived experience, that would be valuable to include in organizing or hosting this ride? Please email me at ursula.sandstrom@waba.org – I would love to have a few folks helping to host this!

This event is taking place on unceded Nachotchtank land. (Learn more here.)

Want to take Capital Bikeshare? We are happy to reimburse your fees.

Need accommodations, have questions about access, something the organizer should know about you (ex: severe peanut allergy) or have questions about the ride? Send us an email at womenandbicycles@waba.org.
