Washington D.C. boasts a tightly woven culture of riding and racing. A passel of nose-to-stem group rides keep D.C.’s cadre of racers sharp, and a windy slice of land less than a mile from the Jefferson Memorial has hosted thousands of lunch rides. The quiet C&O Canal towpath springs riders from the Beltway bustle on a ribbon of gravel, and long routes to Mount Weather — one of the government's famous "undisclosed locations" or up Sugarloaf Mountain offer escapes from the D.C. thrum. Rapha is excited to join the cycling culture in the nation's capital Georgetown, offering gourmet coffee and food, race viewings and group rides — some on well-worn routes and some further afield. Ride with us in the District.
