Saturday, September 12

Capital Crescent Trail

Meet at Bethesda Pool

6300 Hillandale Road

Bethesda, MD  20815


Meet at pool between 6:30 - 7:30 AM. We will line up and depart in small groups of 8 to 10.


We will ride to Black Lives Matter Plaza (approximately 11 miles one-way).


If you do not want to ride the trail back, there will be a group returning by Metro.


We invite MRPA members and guests to join us at our first event “Ride for Justice and Equity”. This cycling event will work to promote solidarity among organizations advocating for human and civil rights, and will also serve as a pledge that MRPA will empower under-represented groups and individuals and support the Black Lives Matter movement. “Ride for Justice” will be a kickoff event, setting the stage for future events that will encourage wider public discussions on topics about social inequality and systemic change. MRPA has always provided a safe and friendly place for members of the public to gather and enjoy recreational activities. However, now more than ever, we will continue to improve and foster an environment of acceptance and unity.


Money raised from this event will be used to fund MRPA scholarships specifically for its minority members.
