          Washington DC Tour with Baseball Games

    Join us for a fun weekend touring DC and going to Washington Nationals baseball games.  The Nationals stadium has free bike valet parking where you lock your bike in a guarded special location just inside the stadium.  Feel free to join us for all or part of the trip.  Details on tickets, as well as cue sheets and maps, will be provided when the trip gets closer.

    Saturday (20 miles) – Meet at Best Western on Glebe Rd at 10 am.  Cycle to the baseball game (10 miles each way) for a noon game vs the Cubs.  Cycle around the National Mall and monuments after the game.

    Sunday (50 miles) – Cycle the Mt. Vernon Trial to Old Town Alexandria for breakfast then back to DC to cycle through Rock Creek Park (closed to traffic on weekends).  Stop for lunch near the White House, ride the amazing bike lane down the middle of Pennsylvania Ave, and continue on to the Nationals stadium for a 4pm game vs the Cubs.  Cycle back to the hotel after the game and then drive home.

    Friday (optional) – Check with Paul about driving to DC on Friday and cycling part of the W&OD Trail and perhaps the C&O Towpath.
