Arlington to National Harbor and Back Ride

This is a 20 mile bicycle ride starting at the Columbia Island Marina in Arlington (near the Merchant Marine Memorial).

We will ride south on the Mount Vernon Trail, go through Old Town Alexandria, cross the Potomac on the I495 Bridge bicycle path and arrive at National Harbor around 11:00am. We'll stop long enough for lunch and a group photo in the sandlot.  Then back to Columbia Island Marina.

This ride is on established bicycle paths and city streets except for the last 100' into National Harbor which is a hard packed dirt path.  It is for the most part a flat ride.

Bring $2 in ones for the Adventuring trip fee, a helmet and whatever you think will make you comfortable.

    Thank you Chris and Keith for hosting this adventerous bike ride despite the drizzle. I look forward to future Adventuring bike rides as well as Chris leading some of them.

    Great ride, with brave riders dodging rain drops -- luckily just drops.

    Since I live nearer to National Harbor, I plan on biking from there to the island and meet you at 10:00
