Next ride: Saturday, July 21 SPLASHDOWN!

Cool off with us in the splash park at the newly-renovated Joe Cole Recreation Center. Once again, we'll start out at Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in Brookland and coast downhill along the Met Branch Trail. After a quick swing through Near Northeast, we'll bike up to the Rec Center for some noisy, wet fun in their new splash park. Afterward, anyone who's hungry can join us for lunch at The Argonaut, one of H Street's most kid-friendly dining establishments.

more details below the break!

UPDATE: by popular request, we WILL be doing a meetup at J.O. Wilson!

We'll have three four meetups plus one optional meetup (depending on local interest): one at Turkey Thicket in Brookland, one at Met Branch Trail and R Street NE, and one at the southern terminus of the Met Branch Trail. If anyone from Capitol Hill or Near Northeast would like an additional meetup in their neighborhood, we can will also make a slight detour to pick up more friends at the front of J.O. Wilson Elementary School at 6th Street NE and K Street NE.

Be sure to bring swim diapers, sunblock, and anything else your family will need for extended outdoor splashtime.
