Artistic treasures abound throughout DC including a number of beautiful murals that depict intriguing aspects of the city's character and culture. But do you know where they all are?
To find out, join BicycleSPACE and Words Beats & Life Inc. for a special tour that will let you explore and discover some of these great wall art pieces. Your guides will offer unique insight about each mural and explain interesting details about the artists and the history of the works.
Words Beats & Life manages the Murals DC program which, so far, is responsible for the creation of over 30 murals. Come along to see some of the best examples of what Murals DC has done to liven up and beautify the city while promoting a positive outlet for the young people they work with.
As with all our social rides, the pace will be relaxed and casual. We will rest periodically at the mural sites we visit and, along the way, we will set up a pit stop so you can take a break and enjoy a refreshing snack.
At the end of the ride, participants will have the chance to offer support to the Murals DC program by providing donations that will go toward repairing and maintaining existing murals or commissioning new ones.
If you'd like to join our tour, kindly register so that we know about how many people to expect.
Uncover a new side of DC with us--it will be an exciting way to spend your Sunday afternoon. To get an idea of what you will experience, check out the following fun videos from previous Mural Rides:
