September is full of rides and bike events in the DC area – many of which the BWB leaders are participating in – so we are not scheduling a September monthly ride. Instead, hit the trails, link up with other members, and check out these local rides and events:
— Try a new trail! Some of our favorite local trails include the Mount Vernon Trail, Anacostia Trail System, Indian Head Rail Trail, Paint Branch, Northeast and Northwest Branch Trails, and Hains Point.
