Residents across the Capitol Hill area will be pedaling through puddles this weekend, with two major biking events planned over the next two rainy days.

Cycling enthusiasts will brave the weather on Saturday for New Belgium Brewery’s Tour de Fat, a celebration of bicycling and beer drinking at Yards Park. On Sunday, roads around the National Mall and in Georgetown will be closed for the citywide DC Bike Ride.

Steady rainfall is expected throughout Saturday morning with temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s. Less rain is expected on Sunday, though there will still be some scattered showers across the area. Sunday wil also be about ten degrees warmer than Saturday.
