DC Jews on Bikes 5th Annual First Ride | Chinatown Park | Saturday, 27. April 2019

DC Jews on Bikes. Year 5. Let's do this. 
Get ready, we're rolling into our fifth season of Jewish biking. Grab your friends and get ready to ride through the streets of our nation's capital on Saturday, April 27th. We'll celebrate the end of Passover together as we ride from Chinatown Park towards Wiseguy Pizza in Navy Yard (202 M Street SE) to stuff ourselves with gluteny goodness and do Havdallah in Navy Yards fabbo green spaces.
The full route can be viewed here.
We'll gather at 7pm, with wheels up at 7:15. The ride should be about an hour. Don't own a bike? No Problem! The start and end points are near multiple Cap Bikeshare docks, and we'll build in stops to dock without going over 30 minutes.
This slow, social ride for Generations Z, Y, and X is suitable for cyclists of all levels. It's the perfect way to make new friends, get comfortable with city riding, find new biking buddies -- or just to "do Jewish" in a whole new way.
We'll explore about 8ish miles of DC -- parts you may not see every day (or you'll see them in a whole new way). After the ride, we'll celebrate havdallah, schmooze, and ingest solid and liquid chametz. 
And as always, it's FREE! (Whoop!)
