D.C. Bike Party Joins Capital Pride for its’ 1st Annual “Pride Ride”
WASHINGTON, DC – DC Bike Party, an official event of Capital Pride, will celebrate Pride Week 2014 during the first annual Pride Ride. On June 4th, the popular monthly party ride, which averages between 500-800 participants each month, will ride through DC in neon and glitter in line with this year’s Capital Pride theme “Build Our Bright Future”. Think drag queens on pedicabs and bedazzled bikers! Riders are encouraged to add songs to the DC Bike Party collaborative playlist to hear their favorite tracks through our mobile jukebox, Sound Bike DC.
The group, departing from Dupont Circle at 8pm sharp, will set out to complete an approximately 7-mile ride, visiting some of the city’s major landmarks and attractions before ending with a celebration at Cobalt on 17th and R St. NW.
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.

About DC Bike Party:
The DC Bike Party is a monthly party ride around our Nation’s Capital, with the route’s starting in DuPont Circle on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. The District’s biking community, much like the city itself, is growing rapidly, and DC Bike Party’s goal is to be a positive part of this growth. 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.
