America/New_York The Big Cannons Ride! Join me this Sunday (12/8/19) as I will lead a Urban Adventure bike ride that will take us in an oval looking like loop to visit the very Big American Civil War cannons hidden away in Fort Foote Park! The ride comes in around 33 miles at 1,400 feet of elevation, and it will take us down South of DC to Fort Foote Park along the Mt. Vernon Trail and over the mighty Woodrow Wilson bridge. On the way back North into DC, we will travel through the Oxon Cove Park, along the Oxon Cove Bike Trail, through the Oxon Run Park and Suitland Parkway Trails, heading into the Navy Yard to visit the very small cannons there! Meet 9:45 AM at the East Potomac Golf Course located at 972 Ohio Dr SW, Washington, DC 20024. Parking is free on Sunday at the Golf Course. Park in big lot and meet at the East Potomac Park Golf Center where the Potomac Grill is located. Look for the dude with the orange Salsa bike as that dude will be me! Wheels roll at 10:00 AM sharp. Water, restrooms, at ride start. We will stop along the way for breaks and quick eats at a convenience store. However, I advise bringing your own riding eats. The ride should come in around the 3-4 hour range at around 12-14 mph range. Also, I may have some cue sheets for the ride, but best that you download them and print them out from the PDF file provided for this ride posting. Take note while parking is free at the Golf Course, parking is also generally meter free on DC's streets on Sunday and there are various parking garages and lots within the immediate radius of the Golf Course. You can also check out www.spothero.com for parking availability and discounts on nearby lots. And for those traveling by Metro, take either the Blue, Green, Orange, Silver or Yellow line and get off at the L'Enfant Station. Exit the Station on 7th St SW and head south for about 4 or 5 blocks to Maine Ave SW. Make a right on Maine Ave SW and go about half mile and make a left on Ohio Dr SW and travel about a mile and the Golf Course will be on your right.
