From the Capitol Hill Bikes Website: "
Meet at CHB, Saturdays at 0800 to go ride a well kept secret of the local cross and mountain bike scene. A cross bike is just fine to test your skills on this course, a mountain bike will be more fun to rip down the trails. Whatever you decide to ride, come join us for an early Saturday cruise.
We will start at CHB at 0800 sharp. It is approximately 11 miles, mainly off road. The ride goes through the Hiker/Biker Trail system of Fort Dupont/Circle/Stanton in Southeast, then continues around the Anacostia River trail. The ride will end at District Doughnut just down the sreet from the shop.
CHB is proud to host the only off road lead ride in the District!
Please be advised: NO road bikes will be allowed on this ride. Also it is STRONGLY reccomended that you bring your own flat repair kit. There will be people to assist you in case of a flat, but we may not have parts for you.
Helmets are required for all rides led by Capitol Hill Bikes."
