Description

***Please Note: The private guided tour of the cathedral building is limited to first 20 participants registered here at EventBrite -- please use this EventBrite only to reserve a spot on the guided tour, if you're certain you can attend the guided tour.
(Don't use EventBrite if you plan to join only the ride portion.)
Your Eventbrite registration is free; however, the cathedral charges $12 tourist admission per adult when we enter.



Meet:

Saturday, February 22, 8:00am at District Doughnut - The Wharf (5 Market Square SW, Washington, DC 20024)

Rollout will be at 8:30am
Note: If nasty weather is forecast for the ride, I will postpone to another date & notify everyone the night before.

Route:
Approximately 6.5 miles on D.C. streets.
Approximate route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29443536?privacy_code=l9JRtEEI6qNiUtSA
3 brief stops planned en route, for tie-ins to District and cathedral history.

Pace:
Casual city-street pace; stopping for lights and stop signs.
Anticipating arrival at the cathedral by 10:15.
My guided tour of the cathedral will then run approximately 75 - 90 minutes.

What To Bring:

  • $12 for Touring Admission to Washington National Cathedral (cash/credit) payable at entry.
  • Bike lock -- rack available in the cathedral's parking garage; we may need to lock bikes to bikes as the rack isn't enormous...
  • Optional: Camera (photography is permitted in the cathedral)
  • Optional: Additional funds if you wish to help build the LEGO cathedral.

Also kindly requested:

  • Non-cleat shoes to change into (or else covers leaving no exposed metal against the marble floors.)
  • Top layer street clothes to cover any very aero or revealing biking attire. Donning shorts and a t-shirt would suffice.

Note: The cathedral has no lockers or storage for personal belongings, nor is food/drink permitted inside.

Sign Up for the Guided Tour Portion!

Eventbrite registration is required to reserve your spot on the private guided tour.
The guided building tour portion will be limited to the first 20 EventBrite registrants. Please don't reserve a spot via Eventbrite if it is likely you won't attend, and if you reserve & later realize you can't attend, please cancel your registration (or notify me to do so for you) so someone else might take it.
