Another Healthy Way To Cope With Post Election Blues – Bike DC!

From WABA:

“Join WABA and at-large D.C. Councilmember Elissa Silverman on Veterans Day for a ride on the newly opened segment of the Anacostia River Trail!

The Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens trail segment was a missing link in a network of 60 miles of trail between the District and Maryland. It connects Benning Road in the District with the Bladensburg Waterfront Park, creating a much more pleasant and safe route for cyclists who commute between Prince George’s County and the District. The trail also provides walkers, bicyclists, and nature lovers access to scenic stretches of the Anacostia River where one can regularly see egrets, eagles, deer, and other wildlife.

The ride will be about 10 miles out and back. We will go at a conversational pace. Please bring your own bicycle and helmet (or plan to use Bikeshare), water and snacks. All are welcome.
Date: November 11, 2016

Time: 11:00 am. The ride will take approximately 2.5 hours
Location: Meet at the bikeshare station at 19th SE and East Capitol St, near the Stadium Armory Metro Station

    Unplug from your phone, computer, and TV and get outside for some fresh air.

    Can you link to the route map? It just says “here” but it’s not a link.

    Like, I get it, but, um, some of your readers are super stoked the swamp has been drained and would love a post on awesome things to do to celebrate #MAGA

      91% of DC residents voted for Clinton, so I think PoP is on target here.

      You could always go to the Trump Hotel and drink wine out of spoons. Or sit at home and figure out exactly what day you think America was greatest and try to get back to it.

    • well

      the same party retained control of Congress, with 90% of Senators who ran for re-election returning, and 97% of Representatives getting re-elected. So the swamp’s still plenty full.

      Bikes are a good way to celebrate.
