This awesome ride is back in action in 2024. It’s still the Real Ride from the Real City but with some new added perks since cycling is only as enjoyable as the coffee and tailgating. This March 2024 ride doubles as a birthday celebration for Anne. Rumor has it there will be cupcakes.

As always, the route features two rest stops with lots of rolling hills and a few lung-inhaling climbs. This month includes an optional Morman Hill out-and-back. We will traverse several urban neighborhoods on well-established bicycle corridors and through some quiet back roads around Potomac. We of course will get to enjoy Rock Creek Park as we return to DC along Beach Drive at the end.

While we look forward to the joys of spinning harmoniously and consciously in pace lines, we are recreational riders and not racers, so we’re prioritizing socializing before and after the ride itself. We encourage all to arrive early before the 9:30 AM ride start to enjoy coffee and a pastry at Blue Bottle Coffee. At the finish line later in the afternoon, please stay and celebrate with us at a post-ride tailgate.
