    I know I'm not supposed to ride until I see the doctor again next Wednesday...but sometimes you just can't help yourself...

    Thank you to my wife for accompanying me to my work convention and convincing me that a bike ride would be better than seeing Colin Powell speak. She was right - as usual.

    We were fortunate enough to be at the White House when the President arrived via Marine One...

    Sometimes doctors are to be disobeyed. Congrats on the ride with excellent pics to go along.

    Our Nation's Capital (tm) sure has a lot of phallic symbols.

    Great to see you on the bike again, Elno!

    very nice!

    i lived there from '92-94, commuted to Georgetown for a year from Arlington over the Key Bridge every day -- what a great bike-friendly city with so many paths, Rock Creek parkway etc etc! The Mall area never gets old, and I must have ridden there or played disc there a hundred times at least. Did you ride the path through Arlington Cemetery, one of your photos by the Memorial bridge\National (Reagan?) airport looks like you might have -- that gets you thinking pedaling by the rows and rows of headstone, when the jets aren't coming in to land right over your head!

    Thanks everyone....

    Cholla, we were staying across the Potomac River from Old Town Alexandria- in Maryland. We took a water taxi across to Alexandria, Virginia and rented the bikes there. We then rode north towards DC along the Mount Vernon Trail - passing by the Reagan Airport. We crossed into DC at the 14th street Bridge towards the Jefferson Memorial. After spending a bunch of time at the Mall Area (we could've spent an entire week there and NOT seen everything) we crossed the Potomac again at the Key Bridge. Unfortunately we were running out of time to get back to our water taxi to the hotel so even though we were right there at the Arlington Cemetary, we had to pass it by...Next time...

    Good to see you back on two wheels. When do you get clearance for XC riding?

    Today is exactly 3 months post-surgery.

    Tomorrow @ 9:30 AM I see the doctor and will hopefully get good news...

    Weekend rides in Flagstaff to celebrate! (hopefully)
