Good places to ride in the DC area?

I'm staying down in Dahlgren for the next couple weeks. I've got a truck, a GPS, and a bike, and enough gas to get anywhere reasonably nearby. I'd like to hit 20 miles or so of scenic trails this weekend or next... any ideas?

Thanks,
-DR

I have weekend place just below Colonial Beach and ride down there frequently. Here is a 20 miler that you might like :http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united...each/391138562

I either ride over from my house (another 5 miles each way) or park in a Church lot just off rt 3. A 1 mile section of Twiford Road is gravel. I ride a cyclocross bike with 700x32 tires - if you are on road tires you might prefer to skip that part. As you return to the start you will pass Ingleside winery - nice spot to stop for wine tasting. An alternative route to the same area is to park at the Westmoreland Berry Farm and ride out to the route from there - you will see Berry Farm Lane just northwest of Leedsville on the map (up 637 - Rappahannock Road). The Berry Farm has hot dogs and burgers. You can see photos of the route here: http://www.heffernans.org/gallery2/m...p?g2_itemId=23.

I have another route I like down by Warsaw (complete with another winery) but that is a bit of a hike. Let me know if you want a link to it.
