Tour the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC. About 20 miles; pace will be slow to very slow with frequent stops to take in the scenery and to walk through the hordes of sightseers. No drop, of course.
We will take a direct route from Northeast DC to Hains Point and West Potomac Park, then cross into Northern Virginia to take in the view across the Potomac river, then return by way of Eastern Market for snacks and lunch.
There is no time limit for on-street parking in DC on the weekends. Do not park in spaces reserved for handicapped residents! $500 ticket plus towing fee!
Start location is the same as in previous years: the triangle park at 15th and North Carolina Avenue, NE in Washington, DC. Bathrooms are a scant 3/4 mile away. Map of start location.
