Day-of-ride

  • Be in your designated corral by 7:45AM – If riding in a group, be sure to plan a meeting time and place at the start line; DCBR is a self-seeded event which means, you are able to lineup in any corral (except for the VIP First Wave) you deem appropriate with your expected pace.
  • RESERVE YOUR PARKING AHEAD OF TIME! – We have partnered with two great partners: Parking Panda and Spot Hero to help you reserve and prepay for parking near the start/finish line or along the course. CLICK HERE TO RESERVE NOW.
  • Find your designated corral – Each corral will be clearly labeled. For full listing of corrals please review the Event Guide.
  • All riders must maintain a 6MPH pace – At approximately 10:30AM if you are unable to maintain the 6MPH pace, you will be re-directed to the Finish Line at the 10.4 mile mark, (prior to crossing the 14th Street Bridge). From that point, it is 2 miles to the Finish Line. See Event Guideor see course map here.
  • Have your RIK visible at all times – Attach the bike sticker to the top tube of your bike, affix the bib to your chest and wear your helmet sticker on the front of your helmet; you may be asked to leave the ride if any element of your RIK is missing.

CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU. HAPPY RIDING!
