This past Sunday I had the opportunity to take an extremely scenic bike ride. I rode the Mt. Vernon Trail. For those unaware it is a 18 mile trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to just past Arlington National Cemetery. Along the route you get to see much of the Patomic, the Pentagon and a distant view of the Washington Monument.
I rode the trail from start to finish so 36 miles in a little over 2.5 hours and that included a couple stops one for the picture above, one for a phonecall and also to help an individual put a new tube in his tire.
Hope to go ride the national mall before I leave.
