The Ride : Detail
*****************
For your pleasure NoVA CBG presents This Littly Piggy Went to Union Market. Let's ride our bikes down to the Union Market and "pig-out" for lunch.

Union Market is a gourmet food hall in Northeast Washington, D.C. Bon Appétit called it one of the 5 best food halls in the United States. This groundbreaking 25,000-square-foot open concept market is home to more than 36 local and regional food and drink vendors, eateries, and rotating pop-ups.

We will begin at the Washington Sailing Marina, cross the 14th Street Bridge, head down the mall to the Capitol, make a left, and bike lane it all the way to the market. When we are done we will "wee wee wee" all the way home where we MIGHT enjoy a milkshake at Triple Craft for dessert.

Bring a Bike Lock !!

The Meeting Spot:

Washington Sailing Marina - Overflow Lot
1 Marina Dr.
Alexandria, VA

PARKING: https://goo.gl/4P4aVu

We will meet in front of the restrooms at the Washington Marina on Daingerfield Island. The restrooms are located in the parking lot closest to the Triple Craft restaurant. We WILL NOT PARK in that parking lot as it needs to be kept fairly open for the Triple Craft restaurant guests and we don't want to wear out our welcome. Please park in the overflow parking lot and make your way to the meeting spot.
