50 States Tour with WABA

Are you looking for DC Statehood? Do you think you might find it if you went to all 50 states and asked folks where it might be? Think that a bit daunting though?

How about cycling all 50 states in the District? You know, each street named after a state? Then join the Washington Area Bicyclist Association’s 50 States Tour.

Next Saturday August 26, starting at WABA’s new offices at the southwest corner of Florida and Connecticut Avenues NW, they will be handing out maps to show you just how to cover the nation inside the District.

Don’t feel like sweating and swearing for 60+ miles? Then downgrade to the shorter 15 mile 13 Original Colonies Tour of each of the 13 original US states.

The only drawback? The ride is unsupported, which means after WABA hands you a map, you’re on your own. So, be safe, and be aware.
