There are events, there are races, and then there are epic rides. Starting at dawn and not ending until near dusk (there are a few exceptions), cyclists start the journey from Capitol Hill traveling to the Southern Maryland, have lunch, and then venture home.

Many thanks to Kip Pierson Photography for not only taking a bunch of great shots but also helping out when some of our volunteers didn't show up.
Thanks to all the people that filled out the survey. We had some great suggestions and testimonials. There were about 130 people that filled it out so we have a good idea where to focus our efforts for next year. We appreciate all the kudos as well!
And the survey winners are: Jeff Brown, Michael Werz, William Garcia, Zollie Fogg, Min Park, Sean McCallum, Peter Hancock, Matt (no last name from Fairfax Station), Michael Smith, Tony Fanning.
Your prizes are going out in the mail soon!
While most of us are still recovering from 2012 we have had an overwhelming response from riders and volunteers to come back in 2013! Many of you are asking what the date of the event is for next year. JULY 6, 2013. If you’re from out of town, make sure to arrive early and catch the best fireworks display in the country - July 4th on the National Mall!
Registration will open on October 1, 2012.
We’re happy to annouce that Reach Above, on behalf of Total 200, made a $6,000 donation to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for 2011. We could not have done it with the generous help of our volunteers and wonderful sponsors. We look forward to our continued support in 2012!
