Great weather to start. I began to regret the second layer until the rain hit during mile 6. Rode miles 6-11 in rain that went from a light rain to a down pour with cross winds. Also, had to contend with a nasty head wind on mile 5/6. Over all fun ride.

Capital Distance

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.
