South Potomac Waterfront & Rock Creek Park

We’ll depart Colgan’s heading east to Mount Vernon then take the George Washington Parkway all the way to I-495 north of McLean. Along the way we’ll stop for a water break at Gravelly Point Park just north of National Airport. We’ll cross the river on I-495 getting off on the Clara Barton Parkway heading south on the north side of the river. We’ll hop off the Whitehurst Freeway at 27th Street and head north on Rock Creek and Potomac Parkway. We’ll continue north on Beach Drive NW to Park Grove 10 where we’ll stop for a water break then turn around and head back. From Rock Creek we’ll continue the ride along the waterfront on Ohio Drive. Then we’ll hit I-395 and ride down to Springfield to the Austin Grill for a late afternoon lunch. Bring water. It’s usually hot and sticky in mid-July.

    Hoping to see some Sunday rides so I can become a member. My work schedule means I would have to use 9 hours of vacation time in order to do Saturday morning rides. I can do Saturday afternoon rides if any of those are planned.
