    DC Bike Events

    Saturday, June 6 there are two bike events in the DC area.

    Cyclefest at Lake Fairfax. Sponsored by The Bike Lane to raise money for trail improvement. They have organized rides, seminars, classes, stuff for sale.

    sounds like fun, but ....

    The Wilson Bridge Bike and Pedestrian path opens at 1pm. It'll be great to have a southern crossing of the Potomac.

    WABA is leading convoys to the bridge from various locations, but I'm planning to do my own modified version of the Greater Washington Loop. Starting somewhere in Arlington and going counter-clockwise through Georgetown, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Mt Rainier, NE DC, Capitol Hill, SE DC and getting to Oxon Hill around 2pm. I haven't mapped the distance yet, but it looks to be around 50 miles on the route I plan.

    cross posted on the other Mid-Atlantic forum

    I did the Wilson Bridge Trail. It was amazing! I was really impressed with how much effort went into the trail design, especially at the Maryland end. Here's a link to a handful of photos. Excuse the two pics of my dog. The rest are all from the trail ride. http://www.flickr.com/photos/3458859...7619344116350/

    What time did you cross? Must have been earlier than me, because the clouds haven't broken yet. I was running late and didn't get there until 4:30.
    I'll be posting pics and ride report on my bike blog later this week.

    I was looking forward to seeing "The Awakening" in it's new home, now I'm sad and disappointed. At the old location he looked very majestic. Now he's looking lost and kind of pathetic.
