Veggie Biking: DC Loop with lunch at DC Vegan

July 31 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm GMT-0400

Please join us for another Veggie Bike Ride looping around DC and Bethesda area.

We’ll meet at 9am on Sunday Jul 31, 2022 in Rock Creek Park, at [Parking Lot 1](https://goo.gl/maps/F6r1z1EmtrAQtSLM9).

We will ride up Beach Drive (which is closed to traffic on weekends) all the way to the Temple and then head west/south towards Bethesda downtown. From Bethesda we will take the Capital Crescent trail to Georgetown, almost 9 miles of downhill riding. We will get on Rock Creek trail from Georgetown, diverting to DC Vegan. After lunch, we will trace our way back to Rock Creek trail back to the starting point.

This event is for those who are fully vaccinated only. Also please do not attend if you are sick or have been near someone who thinks they may have or have been exposed to COVID-19. VSDC greatly appreciates your cooperation.
