The Korte Vasa plus about ten miles of getting there and back. Yes, I ended up metroing from Metro Center to Brookland instead of riding back up the MBT, but knees were angry with me, so I decided not to push it too hard.
It was in the low 40s when we started, but mid 50s when we finished. The route was down the monuments trail, cut across the top of the Hains Point Loop, back up to Maine Ave, then down around the waterfront to the Titanic Memorial (yes, DC has a Titanic Memorial), and then down and across the Frederick Douglass Bridge, up the Anacostia Trail past the skating pavilion, up to Benning Road, then, down through The Hill (stopping to wave at @dennymayo first), north at the Supreme Court, West on Constitution, up Pennsylvania Avenue’s cycle track, then past the White House, through the GW campus, and then back to the House of Sweden for some thick and delicious blåbärssop.
A good long ride and a good start for the season. I didn’t even die!
