MONTHLY DC BIKE PARTY TO HOLD AROUND THE WORLD THEMED RIDE
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
-D.C. Bike Party Will Ride Through Embassy Row, Over & Around Arlington Memorial Bridge, & Back to Columbia Heights For Free Live Performance-
WASHINGTON, DC – Continuing efforts to capitalize on Washington, DC’s large community of cycling enthusiasts, build friendships with like-minded individuals, and explore our nation’s capital, DC Bike Party will hold an “Around the World” ride to celebrate DC’s transplants from all over the United States and abroad. Riders are encouraged to represent their roots by wearing cultural outfits, or even a sports jersey from their home town. DC Bike Party, which held its first ride in July 2012, grew to over 650 riders in August of this year.
The group, departing from Dupont Circle, will set out to complete an approximately 8-mile ride, visiting some of the city’s major landmarks and attractions with a pit stop near the National Mall in between, before ending with a celebration at Acre 121 in Columbia Heights. Once the riders lock up and enter the bar they will enjoy a free live show from local artist Kokayi.
A map of the complete route will be available at DCBikeParty.com 24 hours before the ride. Riders are welcome to join or depart the group at any point—many riders use Capital Bikeshare.
Everyone is welcome to attend or participate. Full details on the event are below:

Each month, the event sets out to explore the city via bicycle, featuring an ever-changing route, new playlist for the ride, and a new post-ride bar. All post-ride outings are 21 and older. The DC Bike Party is a place to ride bikes, make friends, and have a real cool time.
