November Update


Dispatches from The Daily Rider

Update to COVID-19 Procedures and Operations

Greetings from TheDaily Rider, WFH edition! We’re staffing one mechanic in the shop per day so our output is going to be limited. Please understand that we are doing this to keep our staff employed, and to continue to limit the spread of transmission. See our original post on our procedural changes here: and our Monday 3/23/20 update here:

For easier tracking purposes, please consider text based communication methods with us. We’re monitoring our email (info AT thedailyriderdc dot com) and Twitter @thedailyriderdc very attentively.

Repair Update

As of March 17th, we are suspending our repair intake to allow our repair staff to catch up. You all really like zero-contact repairs! We’ll put more updates here and on social media as we are able to accept them. Since every repair intake requires us to sanitize ourselves before leaving the shop, cleaning the key box, cleaning your lock, and cleaning the touch surfaces of your bike prior to entering the shop, we are not currently accepting small repairs such as flat tires or brake adjustments. We do apologize for this, but this procedure takes us significant additional time.

Should you wish to schedule a repair for the upcoming week (March 23-27) please contact us via text or email regarding your service needs and we will attempt to place you into our queue.

Delivery Update

We’re experimenting with delivery for a few days and had our first drop-offs yesterday (March 16th). For this we’re asking that orders are a minimum of $35 and can be carried on a cargo-bike. Additionally, the delivery area is obviously restricted to inside DC, but we’ll be making case-by-case decisions on distances.

Yuba Mundo Package Special $1,899


Cargo curious, but also looking for a good deal? We’ve been fostering this last remaining Yuba Mundo Cr-Mo for a while, but its really time to find a forever home. To make this transition from our shop to your family easier, we’re adding some great add-ons that will make it painless.

A cargo bike isn’t really much of a cargo bike without some accessories, so we’re including several of our favorites to make your bike useful from day one.

We’ll start off with the Monkey Bars. If you’re looking to keep your passengers safe and seated, this part is essential. We’re also adding some Soft Spots to keep them comfortable.

Speaking of safe and secure, we’re adding a Pin Lock so your bike doesn’t roll away without you (we suggest adding a chain or U-lock of your choice as well).

To cap it all off, this package includes the upgraded Stand Together kickstand, offering some stability in an unstable world.


Purchased separately this would be nearly $2,500 worth of bike and accessories.

Full Package: $1,899. No substitutions, please.

Marin Fairfax 1 Arrival

2021 Marin Fairfax in blackWe received hundreds of calls and emails this summer asking about the Marin Fairfax 1. They sold out in almost every size by June, leaving us with no stock and no idea when they would return. Since this bike was featured in Wirecutter as the best hybrid commuter bike, we made sure to have some as soon as they returned.

This hybrid is ideal for fitness riding or commuting across DC. With flat bars and a wide 21 speed drivetrain, the bike is ready for weekends on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and weekdays downtown. Wider hybrid tires and disc brakes make this bike an all season, all-weather transportation solution.

We received word today that the Marin Fairfax 1 order that we made in May will arrive this week. If we had you on the list of pre-orders we’ll be reaching out as they are assembled. If you wish to get on the list, please call or email the shop.

This order only has medium and large sized Marin Fairfax 1 models, so if you’re between 5’5″ and 6’1″, these should fit you.

Want to test rideĀ  before purchase? Call us 15 minutes in advance and we’ll get one ready for you to ride. Arrive with a mask on and a credit card and ID for us to hold during your ride.
