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 “D.C. Bike Party: Undercover”, a celebration of all things clandestine. The playlist, which will be blasted through the massive SoundBike DC, includes Booker T. & The MG’s, Reverend Horton Heat, Johnny Cash and tunes of the like. Participants are encouraged to embrace the spirit of The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” video and Spy vs. Spy when dressing for the event—think black and white, sunglasses at night, and fedoras. DC Bike Party, which held its first ride in July 2012, grew to over 450 riders in May for its Daft Punk themed Robot Ride.
The group, departing from DuPont Circle, will set out to complete an approximately 10-mile ride, visiting some of the city’s major landmarks and attractions with a pit stop before ending with a celebration at Hawk n’ Dove on Capitol Hill. The bar will offer happy hour specials all night for DC Bike Party participants.
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:

About DC Bike Party:
The DC Bike Party is a monthly party ride around our Nation’s Capitol, 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.
