HOW TO GET TO THE START LINE

We have made a minor modification to the Start Line at West Potomac Park and riders will now line up on the roads surrounding the baseball fields instead of on the grass field. The Start Location is still West Potomac Park (100 West Basin Drive SW, Washington, DC).

There are now two entry points to the Start Line: the original entry point to the Start Corrals is located at the intersection of Independence Ave SW and West Basin Drive, and a second entry point is now available at the intersection of Independence Ave SW and Ohio Drive SW.

See the map below for details on how to get to the Start Line:

We recommend Intermediate riders enter at Ohio Dr SW and Independence Ave SW, and for Beginner and Advances riders to enter at West Basin Drive.

See the map below for corral access points:
