Pedal and Paddle Bike Ride
Saturday, Jun 25, 2022
9:00am – 3:00pm
20 miles, 340 feet elevation — along the paved Anacostia River Trail. For Advanced Beginners and Above.
What’s better on a summer day than a bicycle ride along a shady trail followed by a relaxing paddle on a calm river? This ride will take us along the scenic and surprising Anacostia River Trail to the Nationals Stadium where we’ll cross the new Frederick Douglas Bridge which has a separate and wide bicycle/pedestrian lane. Then we’ll return to the start, riding along Anacostia River Park before getting back on the trail. We’ll stop briefly at the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens where the lotus will be starting to bloom. Arriving back at Bladensburg Waterfront Park, we’ll have a picnic lunch, and you can rent a canoe or kayak to paddle vigorously or float lazily along the Anacostia River. You should have a little experience boating on flat water or sign-up with a friend who does. As with all our rides, we’ll have a leader and sweep and no one will be left behind.
