Museums and Monuments Annual New Year’s Day Bike Ride

Non Members

25 miles. For advanced beginners and above (or beginners who can do the mileage).  The route is flat except for a long, easy climb back to the start.

This ride is a great way to welcome in the new year! Beginning in Bethesda, we’ll ride down the Capitol Crescent Trail (CCT) into the city, stopping at the Lincoln, Jefferson, FDR and MLK Memorials for photo ops and a little history.  Our ride will also take us down the National Mall, past the WWII Memorial, and the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian Museums (including outdoor sculpture gardens) as we enjoy the beauty of the city. We’ll have a rest stop about mid-way at the U.S. Botanic Gardens.

This is a city ride, social pace with attention to all stoplights.  Since it’s a federal holiday, we expect the traffic will be light. As with all WWO rides, there will be a lead and a sweep, and no one will be left behind.

Although this event is free for Premium Members, please register, and register early as there are limited spots!
