You can ride 1, 2, 3 or all 4 sides of the DC perimeter (if you do the whole thing, it's about 60 miles - add the ride back to Boundary Stone, and it's a metric century ride!).
As always, the ride will be sponsored by Boundary Stone DC! The first 50 registrants get a swag bag (including awesome t-shirt), and everybody who participates in the ride gets a free beer ticket to be used at the bar that night. The after party starts at 8pm! There will be a band, specials on DC Brau Brewing Company beers, prizes, and more! All riders and supporters welcome.
This is an unsupported ride. Our amazing partner VeloCity Co-op will be doing checks and minor repairs at the start, Phoenix Bikes will be staffing a rest stop at the West stone, Bikes for the World will be staffing a rest stop before the North Stone at St. Paul UMC Church & Gearin' Up Bicycles will have you covered just after the East stone (across from Capital Heights Metro). BUT, you should be prepared with everything you might need along the way: ID & cash, pump and spare tube/ patch kit, etc. Most of the ride is on regular roads, which means stopping at lights, avoiding potholes, and dealing with unpredictable drivers. There will also be some off-roading!! Portions of the route are on trails, gravel, and grass, and might even involve crossing a small stream. (Sounds like fun, right?!!)
Whether this is your 1st or your 4th ride, get ready for an incredible day!
Invite your friends, and spread the word! #BSRide2017
