Continuing my rude hijack of Wildcat’s 2008 thread…
Today I took a Saturday urban bike ride to scout out what my new bike commute will be when my office relocates later this year. Got some touristy shots of Washington DC.
I use a bike trail to do the ~12-13 miles from Virginia suburbs to DC line.
I saw a Blue Heron with a 6' wing span on Four Mile Run in Arlington, VA about 2 miles from the Potomac River
This is Reagan National Airport. I currently work about 1/2 mile from here and use Metrorail to commute to work except from Apr to Oct when I bike commute about 50% of the time.
Crossing the Potomac River on 14th Street Bridge from VA into DC.
The Jefferson Memorial is one of my favorite monuments in DC, architectural motif taken from Jefferson's home Monticello.
It was one of those days; one of the nicer Saturday's this summer with moderate temps, low humidity and sunshine
Maine Avenue Fish Market in Southwest DC
The view up South Capitol Street, Nationals new baseball park is to the right, Capitol Building straight ahead.
Soon my work location will be about 1/2 mile from Nationals Park, believe the new distance from home will be about 15 miles each way. My trusty old beat-up bike in foreground. My bike quiver is like my ski quiver, one old fart on one old piece of equipment.
