Riders can choose between the 47 mile Honeycrisp route or the 23 mile McIntosh route. The Cider Ride starts and finishes in DC’s Brookland neighborhood at The Dew Drop Inn.
The route takes riders from Northeast DC out to Maryland’s Anacostia Tributary Trails through Hyattsville and College Park. The Cider Stop is at Proteus Bicycles, just off the trail. The longer Honeycrisp route then takes riders through Beltsville’s agricultural farm lands and to the Patuxent Research Refuge before stopping for a second pit stop in Greenbelt at Buddy Attick Lake Park. From there, the longer route weaves south through Greenbelt Park to the Trolley Trail before returning to DC on more trails. Both routes end at the Dew Drop Inn where riders can pick up a special edition Cider Ride surprise and enjoy a post-ride celebration.
