Ride the Anacostia River Trail With Elissa Tomorrow!
In stressful times—and this week certainly qualifies as one for many of us—it’s important to get back to basics: good nutrition, sleep, and EXERCISE. So I hope you'll join me and a few Council colleagues, the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and Capital Bikeshare for a fall bike ride on the new Kenilworth section of the Anacostia River Trail TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 11, at 11:00 a.m. We’ll meet up at the Bikeshare station at 19th Street SE and East Capitol Street SE (near the Stadium-Armory Metro stop)! Bikeshare has agreed to waive user fees for anyone who wants to use a Bikeshare bike for the ride.
The new section of bike trail along the Anacostia River connects Benning Road in the District with the Bladensburg Waterfront Park, passing the beautiful Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens along the way. We'll be biking about five miles up the trail and back (10 miles total).
I’ve ridden the trail several times now, and it is spectacular! The weather is expected to be gorgeous - a perfect fall day to get some exercise and enjoy the Anacostia River.
- When: Tomorrow, November 11, at 11:00 a.m. The ride will take about 2.5 hours.
- Where: Meet at the Bikeshare station at 19th Street SE and East Capitol Street SE (near the Stadium-Armory Metro stop). The route map is here.
- RSVP here. Registration is encouraged but not required.
I hope to see you tomorrow! I’ll return to our regular newsletter next week!
