Grab your helmet (or your walking shoes) and join us on Sunday, April 23 for a fun morning bike ride or stroll past this District's monuments followed by brunch.
We will meet at 9:15 am at Georgetown Waterfront Park (where Wisconsin Avenue dead ends) and depart at 9:30 am. There is on-street parking to the right on K Street underneath Whitehurst freeway.
The bike route will take us along the Rock Creek Parkway past the Kennedy Center to the Lincoln Memorial; to the Washington Monument, past the Holocaust Museum to the Jefferson Memorial; around Haines Point to circle back to the MLK Memorial; crossing the Arlington Memorial Bridge to the Women’s Veterans Memorial; around the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, crossing the Potomac on Key Bridge; and ending in Georgetown on M street. The overall distance to be traveled by bikers is about 12 miles on paved trails and streets with gentle terrain.
The walking tour is about 3 ½ miles and will take in the Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials.
After the ride/walk we will all gather for brunch at Mr. Smith's of Georgetown, 3205 K Street NW. Non-bikers/walkers are welcome to join us at 11:15 am.
If you're interested in participating, please contact Gabrielle Grunau or Bill Grosshandler, 301-229-7630. Last-minute participants are welcome, but we will need to let the restaurant know how many to expect.
