There’s BicycleSPACE (locations Downtown, in Adams Morgan, and Ivy City), which regularly holds a number of different rides, including the Hills of Anacostia tour on Saturday mornings. That one will be a little more difficult.
City Bikes, a long-established shop in Adams Morgan, hosts a ride through lovely Rock Creek Park every Thursday.
You can give the popular DC Tweed Ride a shot. It’s once a year, and it only asks that you wear your finest Jazz Age raiment.
And then there’s DC Bike Party, which is... well, exactly what it sounds like: A rolling monthly party, that begins with a big casually paced group ride, and often ends at a bar that’s prepared to play host to a lot of thirsty cyclists. Danny Lesh is its chief organizer.
“I pull the ‘sound bike,’” he says. “It’s an 800-watt sound system. We play loud music, people dance, and just have a blast.”
