Everyone that can please come out and join us for the 1st annual DC BMX ride and swap meet on Sunday, April 29th, 2012. We will be meeting at Gravelly Point Park, George Washington Memorial Parkway, Arlington, VA. , 22202. The park has no physical address so it's a bit of a pain to find on the GPS. If you have a smart phone just drop a pin on it. I'm also sure some of the guys here can help with better directions. The Park is located right across from Reagan National Airport. A little noisy but really cool if you bring the kids, planes taking off and landing all day. Parking is also FREE there which is a big plus! There are also plenty of tables and large grass area for a picnic, don't remember if there are grills or not but I will find out and post and update.There are at least spot o pots as well on the grounds. The ride is an 8 mile ride it sounds long but its a really easy ride with plenty of areas to stop rest and for photo ops. We pass the Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, White House, Washington Monument and the Capital Building. We will be meeting between 10am and 12pm and riding out at 1pm so bring stuff you want to swap or sell there should be plenty of time for that. Bring your family as well they are free to hang out at the park and picnic if not up for the ride. The ride should go about 4 hours or so depending on the group size. The are plenty of street vendors along the way if you get hungry or want a drink. We also stopped at a nice sports bar with and outdoor area on the pre ride if you'd like to grap a beer or more. Don't care if you ride New, Mid or Old school just bring you bike hang out and ride.

Thanks to Larry "lillaRe" for the logo if all goes well we will have FREE logo stickers to hand out. Here are a few pics from the pre ride and a map of the route.

I can't believe I've been a member here for almost 6 years now and have never posted. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)

Anyway, I am super psyched for this ride. It's going to be a blast for sure.

DC Fall Ride

- Sunday, October 7, 2012
- Gravelly Point Park, Arlington VA. 22202
- Meet between 10-12 am and hopefully roll out around 12:30.

There will be a swap meet/meet & greet before the ride, so feel free to bring any bikes/parts you want to sell.

Our usual route is highlighted on the map below, but we may break off that route and hit some new spots this time. The usual route is 8 miles, but it's mostly flat and we usually stop at different locations to take pics, drink water, etc, so it's a pretty easy ride.

Ride what ever you want, as long as it's in good working order. It would be nice if everyone brought a BMX bike, but we're not going to tell you to go home if you show up on something else. It's all about riding and having a good time, so I hope to see some of you there.

Feel free to ask questions if you need more details.
