Transportation: We will be going by 15 passenger van unless we get over 40 to join in which case we will go by Charter Coach Bus.
WE WILL TRANSPORT YOUR BIKES FOR YOU in a cargo van or truck!
Last year's ride was limited to 15 and we oversold. This year, we have a scalable transportation model - and if we can sign up 40, we will go by coach. Otherwise, we will go by 15 Passenger vans. So bring your friends along! The earlier we reach the higher number, the more chance there is we go by comfortable motor coach!
A number of people have expressed interest in going down early - we will work to coordinate among those a way to support the option - let leader know
Lodging: Double occupancy in REALLY NICE hotel rooms located in a DC suburb along the Red Line Metro (A different one from last year)
Meals: You are responsible for your own food expense. There will be many options available.
Mileage: Mostly flat, some easily manageable hills, We will scout the rides before we go
Leaders: Allan Friedman and Sarit Levy - if we have enough trippers for a second 15-passenger van, Nikeisha Smothers will be a third leader

Further details of the individual rides will be posted as available, here’s what’s available now:
The cost for 3 days of riding and 2 nights Hotel accommodation is $399 (double occupancy)!
We will be staying in a close Maryland suburb outside DC. We won’t have to deal with DC traffic this way, get a MUCH better deal on a nicer hotel, and can do quite a bit of riding through Beautiful scenery, and because of proximity to the Metro - enjoy night riding in DC without having to deal with getting back by bike.
Rough Itinerary (last year we did Mount Vernon on Friday and may do the same - we adjust based on weather and traffic realities encountered on the actual trip)
Friday we will leave by 8am (earlier if possible) and arrive around 1pm to our hotel. Plenty of great meal options right near where we will start riding.
We will ride into DC and then around all the monuments and then pick one of a number of places to eat near the Metro. NO MEALS INCLUDED - so you can spend as much or as little on food - but we will make sure you have many options from which to choose. We will see the monuments at night and then ride the Metro back to our hotel.
Saturday - there is a local ride similar to the Five Borough Bike Tour in NYC - only about 20 miles in length and priced at $50 - INCLUDED IN OUR PRICE!!!. Details for the rest of Saturday will be provided and worked out with those who sign up. If we can't see the sights at night Friday due to whether, a second option will be tonight. This give us two options in case there is rain on one of the nights in DC.
Sunday we will ride out to Virginia, seeing Arlington National Cemetery and then the sites on our way to and back from Mt. Vernon - DC namesake George Washington’s home. We will arrive back to the city before sundown and have an early dinner in the city before heading home.
All of the above is subject to change after we do our scout trip based on route conditions and conversations with those who sign up.
We will leave back for New York after an earlyish dinner - so it’s three pretty full days of riding, sightseeing and fun dinners with 5BBC members who join.
For more information, please e-mail email@example.com and include a phone number and best times to reach you if you would like a call back
We hope to see you on this ride
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Running weekend trips is challenging in an all-volunteer non-profit. In order to assure the financial viability of a trip - the club has a firm NO REFUND policy for any reason. At the same time, if the trip sells out and there is a wait list - we will try to refund where possible to sell the spot to someone waiting for one to come free due to unforeseen circumstances.
