With cupcake names like

how can we go wrong!!

The ride begins at the boathouse at Fletcher's Cove. From Fletcher's, we’ll take the Capital Crescent Trail to Bethesda, MD (approx. 6 miles).

There ride is smooth, flat, and tree-lined. If you are truly an introductory rider, but you don't want a cupcake, come anyways, the distance for the round-trip ride is about 12 miles. Going northbound on the Capital Crescent Trail has a slight incline and is tree lined and very picturesque. Coming home is downhill so we have that to look forward to.

Please Remember to bring a bike lock !!
