I've been attending this series for a number of years, and it is the best of its kind in the region. You will need a photo ID to get in and a lock for on street lock up, or you can choose to leave bicycle in the secure auto parking area under the freeway adjacent to the performance venue. ( Locked up and guarded by the Marines.) The ride is flat and we will ride the SW and SE street grid and do a loop on the Anacostia Trail. The concert starts at 2:00, so we should get there with ample time to lock up, go through security(don't forget photo ID) and peruse the program before the performance. The concert will last around one hour, should be back to the start around 4:00. There is no lunch break, so take along a snack.
