2019-05-27 10:00:00 2019-05-27 10:00:00 America/New_York Memorial Day Ride - The DC American Civil War Forts What better way to celebrate Memorial Day then by riding your bike in the Nation's Capital to all 16 Washington, D.C. American Civil War Earthwork Forts of Fort Carroll / Fort Greble / Fort Stanton / Battery Ricketts / Fort Davis / Fort Dupont / Fort Chaplin / Fort Mahan / Fort Bunker Hill / Fort Totten / Fort Slocum / Fort Stevens / Fort De Russy / Fort Reno / Fort Bayard / Battery Kemble in honor of the veterans who fought in the War (1861-1865) between the States! The ride will take us on a 40 mile loop around D.C. to the Forts with 2,800 feet of climbing. This is a no drop ride, and you should know your ride ability level to determine if this is a ride for you! The pace will be moderate as we will be riding through the city with a lot of stop and go riding. The whole ride should come in the 4 hour range. However, feel free to break off from the ride at any time should the need arise. Meet 9:45 AM the BicycleSPACE Downtown shop on 440 K St NW, Washington, DC. Wheels roll at 10:00 AM sharp. Water, restrooms, bike pumps at ride start. We will stop along the way for breaks and quick eats at a convenience store. However, I advise bringing your own riding eats. Also I may have some cue sheets for the ride, but best that you download them and print them out from the PDF file provided for this ride posting. For those traveling to ride by vehicle, please take note parking is meter free on DC's streets on holidays and there are various parking garages and lots within the immediate radius of BicycleSPACE. You can also check out www.spothero.com for parking availability and discounts on nearby lots. And for those traveling by Metrorail, take the Green line and get off at the Gallery Place Chinatown station. Exit the station on 7th St NW and head north 3 blocks to K St NW. Make a right on K St NW and BicycleSPACE is 3 blocks on the right. For directions to the BicycleSPACE, please feel free to call the shop at (202) 962-0123, or use Google Maps.
