This group was started so that we at Capitol Hill Bikes can share the passion of cycling with our customers and friends. The employees at Capitol Hills Bikes love to talk about riding, so now you get to see us doing the actual riding we talk about!
This is meant to be an informal group riding experience. We have a no-drop policy, which means if you fall behind, don't fret! Someone will drop back to help you back to the group, or to hang out with you until you catch your breath. Group rides will have ride leader(s) who will set the course and pace of the ride (remember, no dropping!). Leaders will also make sure everyone makes it back to the start point.
If you are just starting out in cycling, welcome to the sport! Please make sure you are ready to take on this kind of physical activity. If you aren't we'll try to set up rides to ease you into it. The rides will be very accommodating to varying skill levels. We may even split the group so that one can take an easy route while the other takes a more challenging route, a big ride such as Pelotonia or a bike tour, let us know! We can try to make the ride challenging enough to get you better prepared for your ride. email Kevin @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-544-4234
