Biking to Alexandria

Flowers on the trail

Sure, we’ve biked to Alexandria before, but never like this! Previously we had Metroed to Rossyln, and biked from there – about a 12 mile ride. This time we left from our house on the bikes, found our way to the W&OD trail in Vienna, followed it to Four Mile Run Trail, to Mount Vernon Trail, and into Alexandria. The good news is that most of the trip was on a slight down-grade, so even though it was over 20 miles without much of a break, we managed just fine. Though, I must admit that by the time we reached the streets of Alexandria, I was exhausted, and had a bit of a…um…inner leg pain. Yup, that’s fun on a bike.

Total miles: 23.2
Weekend miles: 23.2
Season miles: 110.0 (w00t! yay us — over 100 miles this season already!)
