We're trying to say YES more this season!

So, we've launched a new "DCBP Presents" series to distinguish our more official "DC Bike Party" rides from the special ones we want to say "yes" to making happen.

This weekend, we'll have TWO "DCBP Presents" rides to Catharsis on the Mall on Friday and Saturday nights.

Then, next Wednesday 5/8, we'll have our annual DC Bike Party Funk Parade ride!

We're VERY excited to raise the roof (and some $$) for The DC Center at our annual Pride Ride this Wednesday evening! Find Soundbike DC before the ride or at the midpoint if you have any cash to give, or we'll have a card reader at the Hilltop where you can donate too.
