What you'll do
We'll meet in the morning for a sporty ride of DC's best regional cycling routes and explore scenic roads while we get our heart rate up for a fantastic workout. I'll employ 20 years of local cycling experience to provide the kinds of rides that are the locals favorites. I'll lead you at your pace on the type of route you'd think you'd most enjoy. Options vary from tree lined suburban bike paths and park roads to nearby rural settings. Routes can also include views of DC's historic monuments and views along the Potomac river. We'll avoid the busiest roads, take advantage of those with wide shoulders, bike lanes and infrequent traffic. We'll ride silky-smooth, classic steel, modern equipped 9/10 speed road bikes. We won't miss the best re-fueling stops and cafe stops.
I'm a DC area native who enjoys sharing my love of cycling with others. I'm easy going cycling nut with a keen eye for the details that make for a safe and highly memorable experience. I'm less obsessed with speed and personal records than with the high that comes from riding sweet routes with good people. Sure, I compete in road, mountainbike and cyclocross races but have also personally organized the DC's most fashionable, laid back bike ride in the city for the past nine years. I have enough routes in my back pocket to plan a ride that fits the mood of the day! It's always about fun first.
Bikes & helmets Transportation included if necessary to ride starts for more rural settings.
Where you'll be
