Beat The Heat

Join District Cycle Works this Sunday morning as we host a road ride from the shop to Kensington, Maryland, and back. We will end the morning at Cafe 2622 for refreshments and recap unless the group decides otherwise during the ride 🚲

We will be looking to hold a 16-17mph, “conversational” pace. Understanding heat will be a factor, we may make adjustments to pace and route in the interest of the group.

It's going to be VERY HOT.  We ask that everyone keep their own heat threshold in mind.  For personal safety, if you don't do well in the heat, the day might be better spent on the trainer.

While we will do our best to accomodate everyone, we ask you come ready with everything you will need for 3+ hours on the bicycle (nutrition, tire and tube repair, fully charged electronics.) There is a map of the route below for you to bookmark and download to your Wahoo, Garmin, and/or iPhone to ensure you are able to find your way back if you get separated from the group. If you need assistance doing so please let us know.

Also, WATER!  We recommend bringing TWO full bottles for this ride, and ideally with electrolytes.  You might also consider brining an extra frozen bottle for your jersey if you tend to be on the thirstier side.
