A local DC bike shop, The Bike Rack,  brings has two organized group rides for those new to cycling, commuting, or for anyone who just wants an easy pace ride with some nice people.
  Their Saturday ride is designated as an introductory ride. The ride meets at the shop, located at 1412 Q street NW, at 10:00 am on Saturdays and departs by 10:15. The pace is approximately 12 to 15 mph average and the distance is about 25 miles. The ride is led by experienced cyclists who are there to help you enjoy your ride, to answer any questions and to help you to improve your cycling skills.
  There is also added a brand new “Urban Ride” for those who do not have much experience riding in the city. This ride is also introductory and it meets every Wednesday at 6:00 pm at the shop and it’s led by an experienced cyclist. The distance is 6 to 10 miles and the pace is slow, as you will be riding on city streets. This ride is a great opportunity to become familiar with riding in the city while developing your urban riding skills.
  To receive the latest information on any of their rides, join ourGoogle Discussion Group. It’s also a great way to communicate with other riders anytime you want.
  To participate in either ride all you need to do is show up.  Make sure your bike is in good working condition, wear a helmet, bring a water bottle.
