    Orange is our national color. You are invited to wear orange attire and decorate your bicycle. So, don't forget to wear something orange (the color of the Dutch) so we can recognize each other!

    Note the different starting time from regular E-bike Lovers' rides: We start at 1:30 - 2 PM!

    Donatie suggestion: for this event, we appreciate donations, $10 for DC Dutch or EBL members and $15 for non-members. You can donate here. https://www.dcdutch.org/Doneren

    All proceeds will go to DC Dutch. We will have a donation box at the picnic.

    The ride will be around 20 miles in flat terrain. All types of bikes are welcome. Families are encouraged to participate.

    You don't need to be Dutch or speak the language to be part of this historic event.

    All are welcome. Even if you don't like raw herring, wear wooden shoes, or live in a windmill, the Dutch welcome your participation.

    Bring your food and drinks to the picnic. We will bring Dutch treats and lots of Dutch cycling love.

    ***

    Welcome to our annual DC Dutch / E-bike Lovers self-guided bike ride in Washington DC.

    This tour is for young and old. Families, friends, and neighbors are all welcome. You will bike at your own pace, and it is all about enjoying the scenery and being outside.

    Please plan to start the tour between 1:30-2 pm on Sunday, October 2th, at the Anacostia park DC/roller skating pavilion. There is plenty of parking.

    At the halfway point (Hains point), DC Dutch will provide dutch snacks. You can even bring your picnic and take a more extended break.

    Various monuments can be seen during this route (The Capitol, the municipal Fish Market, White House, Lincoln Memorial, Nationals ballpark stadium, Titanic memorial, the new Frederick Douglas bridge, etc.).

    You need your bike (regular or E-bike) and helmet (required). You can rent a bike or use Capital bikeshare (check closest to the starting point).

    Bring a fully charged cell phone to follow the route. You can also print out the bike route. We will have advanced bikers who are familiar with the app and can assist you at the start of the tour, or you can follow one of the other bikers.

    Also, bring something to drink (water) and snack/food for a picnic (optional) during the tour.

    Don't forget to wear something orange (the color of the Dutch) so we can recognize each other!

    If you have bike trouble during the ride, there will be a “bezemwagen”/ Sweep.

    DCDutch and E-bike lovers are excited to coordinate this annual event for you. Rain or shine!

    Weather is going to be very Dutch-like, wet, but windier.
