This year is the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Join us for a fun and fascinating ride to explore our city’s and country’s herstory. DC was one of the primary battlegrounds for the women’s suffrage movement, and amazing sites and stories abound. In addition, there are countless incredible women – artists, journalists, entrepreneurs, activists and politicians – who have left their mark on the city and county. Join “111 Places in Washington That You Must Not Miss” guidebook author and tour guide Andrea Seiger and Jeff Miller, the DC Cycling Concierge, on an 8-mile ride to check out numerous sites you may not have ever noticed but will now. Come learn and explore some of DC’s rich herstory, from Mary McCloud Bethune to Clara Barton, from brothels to temperance, from our beloved cherry trees to rulings at the Supreme Court. All people and all types of bikes welcome.
