Dear Rider,

Happy New Year.

After a challenging 2020, we enter a new chapter and start planning our annual celebration of life on two wheels in our nation’s capital.

And in this process, we would like to provide an update on the 2021 DC Bike Ride. After careful evaluation and discussion with all of the health & public safety authorities involved, it was determined that to deliver a safe in-person event for our community, we must move the ride date to the fall, on September 25. For this year only, we will trade our springtime cherry blossoms for a beautiful autumn setting.

The new and improved DC Bike Ride will bring all the fun you already know in an outdoor car-free bicycling experience, following safety and social distancing norms. The new date has been officially secured – meaning that unless future developments prohibit us from celebrating together, DC Bike Ride will be back on the road this year!

Mark your calendars as registration opens on February 4!

And get ready for a year filled with activities to keep everyone pedaling – from small social rides to virtual events, and ending with all of us coming together to celebrate at the DC Bike Ride.

Thanks again for your support. Our best to you and your loved ones.

Sincerely,
The DC Bike Ride Team
