Details from Nelle at WABA:


Join us for our first Women & Bicycles ride of the season. Peak blossom is right around the corner and warm spring weather, so we're going to take a leisurely tour around the blossom-dense Hains Point.

Yep, leisurely. All of our group rides are no-gal left behind social rides.

6:00pm Gather at the Smithsonian Metro Stop
6:15pm Quick new rider skillshare
6:30pm Begin ride
7:00pm Snack break!
7:30pm Return to the Smithsonian Metro Stop

-Are you new to bicycling?-
Fantastic! Glad you can join us. We will start the ride with a quick skillshare on bicycling and city streets. Group rides are great opportunities to hone your bike skills and gain experience. Throughout the evening we'll answer questions and highlight the ins and outs of bicycling in our city.

-How to get there-
Metro, bike, bikeshare, walk, or drive to the meeting location. We'll meet at the Smithsonian metro station, conveniently located by a bikeshare station.

-What to bring-
Bring your helmet, water, snacks, clothing that will keep you warm, and your bike lights! If you're bringing your own bike do a quick scan and make sure your tires are inflated, your brakes are in good condition, and everything is in its right place.

If you're renting a capital bikeshare, remember that you will be charged for any time you have your bike longer than 30 minutes. We can swing by stations along the way to avoid these charges.

Invite your friends and see you on two wheels soon!
