We will bike at an intermediate pace from north Old Town heading north on the Mt. Vernon Trail, then cross the Canal bridge in Georgetown to access the Capital Crescent trail to Bethesda. Round trip is about 27 miles--all flat. Plan on a very brief stop for a drink at Cossi in Bethesda. The return trip out of Bethesda is easier because of the slight downward slope. Please make sure your bike is in good condition. Bring a helmet and water! Street parking is available around the Crown plaza hotel and the adjacent tennis courts.
Bike rentals are available at Wheels & Nuts Bike shop located one block from our starting place at the Crown Plaza hotel.
After the ride, the group will choose a restaurant in Old Town or nearby (perhaps Rustico).
This ride is being cross-posted with a few other meetups.
