If the base has any kind of website or office that handles commuting info, check with them. Also waba.org and bikewashington.org for possible routes, and wmata.com for Metrobus and Metrorail info. The trip planner at wmata.com recommends a bus that goes to the Congress Heights station - that may be the closest metrorail station. I do not know the routes at all in that area; the goggle maps bike option uses Suitland Parkway which I am skeptical is at all bikeable. On the plus side, all metro buses have bike racks, folders (bagged) are allowed at all times, and as you may have noticed, GWU is crawling distance from the Foggy Bottom metro rail station.

Wich department are you visiting? A very good friend is a long-time professor I think in Middle East poly-sci. (PM me as I may not revisit this thread for a while)
