Art, Bikes and the City: A DC Mural Ride

Experience DC on a bike and through its beautiful murals. This tour is designed to bring out your creative minds as we pedal to and view DC’s more serene, naturalistic wall pieces.



This event is at capacity. However, feel free to show up for any open spots by noon. The ride is limited to 50 cyclists and registrants will have priority.

Meeting Spot (11:30am):
Park at LeDroit 3rd St NW & Elm St NW
*Ride will depart promptly at Noon

The route is about 8 miles and is perfect for any skill-level: the pace is casual, with mural-viewing stops planned throughout. We encourage anyone to join us who loves public art and exploring the city on two wheels.

All cyclists are expected to respect traffic laws, each other and foster a safe transportation environment. All minors must be accompanied by an adult guardian. The route will be led by a tour guide and volunteer bike sweepers but remember to practice your own cycling safety on the ride. AIGA encourages the use of helmets and does not hold responsibility for your individual safety.

Additional information about the ride will be announced on this page, Twitter, and Facebook

If you have cycling experience and would like to volunteer as a sweeper, please contact the event coordinator.
