Land of the Free, Home of the Bikers
This past weekend I took a trip to Washington, D.C. to celebrate my friend's birthday. The occasion was the perfect opportunity for me to pack up my bike and head to the Nation's Capital. Saturday afternoon, my sister and I set out on the streets of D.C. The day was beautiful and the weather perfect for cycling. I have been to D.C. a few times previously and saw some of the monuments. However, walking around the National Mall is not exactly easy. But cycling.... We visited the monuments then biked to the Library of Congress and got cards. We rounded up the ride by getting a root beer float at Union Station. We rode a total of 9.68 miles.
