The Presidents Day Ride is back! This year's ride is all about our nation's first President, George Washington. Tickets are free, but please register on eventbrite so we know how many people to expect.
Why's the Washington Monument multi-colored? Why is the Custis Trail called the Custis Trail and what does it have to do with GW? Explore the border of a 1200 acre plot owned by GW that you've biked past 100 times. See the Washington family pew which has been used by at least 6 Presidents and one British Prime Minister. See the best view of Alexandria!
