Mt. Vernon Bike Trail

Suzanne is helping Ed and me find the best things to do in the area. She suggested we park our car at her in-laws house and ride our bikes on the Mt. Vernon trail.

We bought a bike carrier for the Mini, and decided the 65 degree and sunny weather was going to be perfect for a ride today.

From the Rigby's house it is only about a mile to Mt. Vernon. We took this happy picture before we realized how hilly the path was!

It followed the Potomac river, but somehow managed to go up and down a lot while doing it!

Martha Rigby suggested we stop for lunch at DRP pizzeria across from Bel Haven park! She did not steer us wrong. It was the perfect pick-me-up to help us cycle back up the steep hill to Mt. Vernon on the way home. It was a 22 mile round trip. Someone is going to be sore tomorrow!
