Mt. Vernon trail
My sister in law lives in Alexandria near Mt. Vernon. Every time we visit, I bring my bike and cycle into DC to see the sights. A bike is a great way to see DC. Some Alexandria bike shops rent decent road bikes. On the Mt. Vernon trail, you will see many walkers, cyclists and roller bladers. You have to be a bit careful on tight turns. Sometimes you'll come across three little old ladies walking three abreast. One time, there were a bunch of old guys roller blading on the path. It looked like fun, so I bought a pair of K2's. First time out, I was roaring down a hill on the trail, and the skates went out from under me. Two badly mangled elbows! Then I bought knee and elbow protectors, and haven't used the skates since! If anyone wants a good deal (size 12) on them, I will sell it to them cheap. They are in excellent shape.
