Moonlight Memorial Monument Ride
Saturday, May 14th

START: PAC Hostel - 11th & K St, NW
Gather 8:00PM - Rides starts at 8:30 PM
See our Nation's Capital as few have. Moonrise is 5:17 PM, so the moon should be very helpful. From the Capitol to the Washington Monument, from the Lincoln Memorial to Hains Point on the banks of the shimmering moonlit Potomac. Illuminated granite, quiet streets, easy parking, and low traffic will make for a memorable experience. Participants will be given a cue sheet and receive emergency mechanical support from roving mechanics on bikes, but organizers request that bikes be in working shape before beginning the 15 mile ride. The ride is free of charge, but we are raising funds for the Potomac Area Council of the non-profit Hosteling International (formerly AYH), and encourage you to consider making a donation (recommended $10).

Bikes must be equipped with working lights, and organizers will have some available at discounts from $9. Support and healthy pre ride snacks and drinks will be provided by Mt Airy Bicycles / College Park Bicycles. Hostel is at 11th & K St NW, near the McPherson Square Metro .Linda and Larry Black [larry@bike123.com] 301/831-5151.
 


Please be aware the ride is on city streets and NOT closed to traffic.
