The first bike ride is hard to forget. Your parents letting go of your bike seat for the first time. Them cheering behind you. Your fears falling away. Your lungs filling with fresh air. Relive the moment. Recapture the freedom.
DCBR gives you the chance to connect with fun-loving active types, just like you. Grab your friends and family, and let's go for a bike ride! A picture paints a thousand words, check out photos from DCBR 2016 HERE.
GREAT PLACES at your own pace
Cruise the streets at your own pace and have the city all to yourselves. Just you, two wheels, and some of the most iconic sights in the world. Stay tuned for the 2017 course!
Great Purpose for everyone in the city.
Proceeds from DCBR benefit the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and their street safety programs supporting DC’s Vision Zero Campaign. Learn more about how you help us make streets safer for all HERE.
Great Party for a photo finish.
End your epic journey at the Finish Festival. Last year, riders celebrated on Pennsylvania Ave. near the Capitol. DJ Questlove from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon headlined the 2016 Finish Festival! 2017 musical acts and entertainment info coming soon.
