Susan Piedmont-Palladino, Museum curator, leads a bike tour of Buzzard Point, highlighting current use, planned developments, ideas to improve the public realm and future connections to points of interest in Southwest such as the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, Nationals Park, the Navy Yard, and adjacent neighborhoods. A peninsula in Southwest D.C. between the Anacostia River and the Washington Channel, Buzzard Point is being transformed from a primarily isolated industrial area into a new mixed-use neighborhood anchored by the future DC United Soccer Stadium.

Participants should be comfortable with on-street riding. The Museum does not provide bikes or helmets.
