Next Weekend - Ride the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail with Me!

If you joined my Veterans Day bike ride last year with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association 2016_Veterans_Day_Bike_Ride.jpg(WABA), then you know that fall is one of the most beautiful times to enjoy the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. That's why I'm teaming up with WABA and our Bicycle Advisory Council for another fall ride this year!

Join us on Saturday, November 18 at 10:30am to ride through the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and explore Bladensburg Waterfront Park. We'll be leaving from the Capital Bikeshare at the DC Armory (2001 E Capitol St SE), so you can plan to use a bike-sharing option if you don't have your own bicycle. All skill levels are welcome and parking is available at the RFK Stadium lot nearby.

You can find full bike ride details and RSVP to join me here.

Now I'll be honest, the forecast for next Saturday looks iffy. If it still looks questionable throughout next week, we'll make the decision to cancel and update you next Anacostia_River_Trail.pngFriday. And if we have to cancel, then we'll try again in the spring! In fact, I'm looking forward to making my Friday afternoon bike rides from the Wilson Building open to the community in the spring too. A few Wilson Building colleagues recently started joining my ride around noon to loop Hains Point and pit stop for lunch on the Wharf Waterfront. The more the merrier, so I'll let you know when I have a few ride dates on my spring calendar!

I'll be sending a pretty jam-packed newsletter early next week, but as we head into Veterans Day weekend I'll be taking time to pay my respects to our veterans who have helped preserved the safety and freedoms that I regularly enjoy.

Hope to see you next weekend and Happy Veterans Day,
