One of the things we love here at The Hill is Home, apart from Capitol Hill and history, is how friends from all around the city share activities that we are absolutely sure our neighbors –especially our #BikeDC neighbors– will absolutely love.
Which is why we are very happy to share the 3rd Annual Boundary Stone Bike Ride, coming this Saturday, September 19th to a city perimeter near you (literally)! From our friends’ press release, here is the info you need:
Do you like history, biking, and/or adventure? Are you trying to check off all the items on the Washingtonian’s bucket list of things to do in DC? Do you just need something fun and different to do on a Saturday in September?
Whatever the case, join us for a bike ride around the oldest federal monuments, the DC boundary stones! The whole ride (including bike back to Boundary Stone) is a metric century; each side is approximately 15 miles – join us for 1, 2, 3, or all 4!Meet at Jones Point Park (southernmost boundary stone) at
Wheels-up is at 9:30am.
As always, the ride will be sponsored by Boundary Stone DC = ride shirts and an awesome after-party at the bar with specials on DC Brau Brewing Company beers! This year, our new partner Phoenix Bikes will be on-hand at the ride start and rest stop(s) for bike safety and maintenance checks.
We hope you have a great time! And if you want to read about, say, Daniel Carroll of Duddington, one of the men who owned the land upon which the city sits, way before boundary stones defined it, read one of Robert’s columns on the subject– we think you’ll be hooked.
