Saturday Night Bike Club

A low impact, healthy method of enjoying the DC area. We use our bikes to explore the rich Black history of DC. All levels are free to ride with us, as we plan all of our routes around Capital Bikeshare stations & provide vouchers for said bikes.

Check out their Strava, Instagram, and Facebook for more.

“In our mission to further accessibility of biking & cycling, we recognize that the activity & sport are often dominated by males. This presents itself as a potential barrier for someone seeking to try out biking. This can also manifest as a barrier for improvement, especially when one considers the “bikesplainers” of the world.” – Saturday Night Bike Club
