Get a little exercise and a little culture. We'll meet at the Captial Crescent trailhead in downtown Bethesda then ride the roads to Glen Echo Park.

At the park we'll check out the 35th Annual Labor Day Art Show. The Art Show will feature the work of more than 150 regional artists - both children and adults - many of which are either students or teachers at Glen Echo Park. Artworks for sale include sculpture, paintings, works-on-paper, ceramics, glass and jewelry. There will also be many other activities happening at the park. Check out the website for more information.

The cycling portion is about 4.5 miles each way and travels through residential areas. Please note that this will be road riding, not trails, and, as always, helmets are mandatory!

Those not wanting to ride can choose to meet at the Art Show. The meet time is 12:15. Please allow plenty of time for arrival as parking is a challenge near the Park during this event. When you register, please specify in the notes section whether you are riding from Bethesda or meeting at the park.
