Community Bike Ride to DC (downtown and Capitol Hill)
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE'VE MOVED THIS RIDE TO SATURDAY THE 18TH, BECAUSE OF THE FORECAST FOR BAD WEATHER ON SUNDAY.
Please join us for a 33 mile fun ride to Washington DC on SATURDAY Feb. 18 at 1pm. Here is the route:
We'd leave Proteus bikes in north College Park at 1pm, have a lunch break probably around 2:30 at Eastern Market, and head back around 3pm or 3:30pm at the latest I'd think. We may split into groups of faster or slower riders, but no one would be dropped. The Metro (open for bikes on weekends) would be the bailout if the weather turned bad or for any other reason.
The route would highlight several area trails and connectors: The College Park trolley trail, the NE branch trail, the Paint Branch trail, the NW Branch trail, the Met Branch trail, the R street bike route, the 15th Street cycle track, the Pennsylvania Ave median bike lanes, and the fairly extensive one-direction bike lanes on Capitol Hill.
