A Great Day for a Bike Ride

Yesterday was one of the first really nice days we have had so far this spring in DC.  It was a little windy, but the sun was shining and the temperature was in the 60’s.

Dan and I planned to meet friends for a bike ride in Georgetown.  We woke up and got ready, got our bikes out of storage and loaded up the car.  We wanted to get there relatively early, parking is free on Sundays and we knew a lot of people would be heading downtown.

When we got to Georgetown was walked around a bit, waiting to hear from our friends, once we did, we had a quick change of plans…. they wanted to do brunch first…great!

We headed to Rosemary’s Thyme where I enjoyed a mimosa and a fruit and cheese plate.  We then went and got our bikes and headed to see the Cherry Blossoms.  Riding through the crowds was very difficult at times, but the bikes were a perfect idea, since I still shouldn’t be walking all over town, while I wait for my leg to heal.

We hung out at the Jefferson memorial for a little while before riding by the Potomac to southwest DC and grabbing a drink at Station 4.  By that time it was getting kind of late and Dan and I had to get back to our car before dark.  The bike ride back to the car was a little less congested and was really nice as the sun was starting to set.  We got home and relaxed on the couch.

It was a great way to spend the day and I look forward to doing it again soon!
