DC Pizza Crawl
City Tour, 11 mile short route, 21 mile long route
Just about everyone loves pizza but pizza can hang out on your body for awhile if you don't work it off. This ride will allow you to eat lots of yummy pizza and work it off via bike so you can truly enjoy it. Each stop will be a place where you can get a slice or small pizza pie to share with someone so you aren't eating too much along the way. This is a great ride for everyone who loves pizza and not sure where the best places are to get a slice. Each one is also close to a Capital Bikeshare if you don't have a bike with you.
