About 45 miles round-trip and the first time Adventuring has ever done a bike ride to the Fort. Ft. Washington is an interesting historical site on the Maryland side of the Potomac River and it commands a lovely view of the river and the Virginia shoreline. Our route will follow the Mt. Vernon Trail to Wilson Bridge, National Harbor and then down suburban Prince George's County roads and streets to Ft. Washington. Given the length of this ride, a few stretches of busy road, and a longish climb as we approach the Fort this ride should be considered intermediate to advanced. My average moving speed is 11 MPH, but you're welcome to ride at the speed you're comfortable with. All riders will be given a cue sheet. Pack a lunch or pick up something to eat as we pass through Old Town. Bring a water bottle, $2 for the trip fee, and $3 for the park entrance fee. Please RSVP if you're planning to come so I can contact you if I need to make any last-minute changes due to weather.
