    Default WABA Launches Family Friendly Sprouts Ride

    WABA has launched the Sprouts Ride this year, a family friendly ride in DC with 5 and 15 mile route options. This is a great ride to bring the kids on or for the cyclist that wants to get more familiar with DC (cough - Chris B-cough).

    If you’re not interested in riding, please sign up to volunteer.

    Ride details and registration for riders and volunteers is here: https://www.waba.org/blog/2019/03/the-sprouts-ride/#faq

    Is the route set yet? Just curious where it will be going. I won't be back on a bike by then, but hope it's a big success

    The 15 mile route will hit the Mall, Wharf, and ART. Starting and ending at REI, it's an easy 14 miles to head down to the Lincoln Memorial, loop back to the Wharf, head over the river on S. Capitol to Benning before working back west...so maybe something like that?

    Details, for those who like those kinds of things, seem to be: Sunday, April 28, 2019, maybe starting at noon? and maybe start and end at the REI at 201 M St NE, Washington, DC 20002

    For those people who know people, WABA's site could be more clear on these details.

    I'd guess a rolling start from 11ish to 1 or 2 based on the volunteer listings, but yes: some clarity would help.

    I had a great talk with Colin @WABA who set this up. (I think it's Colin). I think this I a great new ride and way to get newer folks or curious friends involved in the bike community. Esp. Because right now the price is $20 ( I think). Food music riding. I'm gonna invite some friends!
