Event description

Description


What could be better than a regular tree tour? A tree tour by bike! We’ll be meeting at the REI Washington D.C. flagship store in NoMa and making our way over to the Capitol. Along the way we’ll explore some of the most magnificent trees including ancient willow and bur oaks, pecans, sweet buckeyes and giant sequoias. If we’re really lucky we’ll even see the first blooms of some summer flowering trees. The action doesn’t stop there – we’ll head back to REI for food and fun in the historic building where the Beatles played their first concert in the U.S. in 1964!
