The 2010 Bike D.C. ride. All in all it's a 19-mile tour of some of the best sights in D.C. and Arlington. According to the website:
"The 19-mile Bike DC ride starts on America's Main Street-Pennsylvania Avenue-with the U.S. Capitol as the backdrop. On the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, of course, is the White House, the first of the national treasures along the route. Others include the Marine Corps [War] Memorial, Arlington Cemetery and the Air Force Memorial.*"
The ride doesn't just go around D.C., it also goes over into Arlington and up the GW Parkway to Fort Marcy Park (just past Chain Bridge), turns around and ends up in Crystal City (click here for the route). Sounds like fun to me. And, since I just got this:**

*Otherwise known as the "Wolverine" or "Standing Rib Roast" memorial.
**No, I didn't just buy a bike, I just bought a new bike. Ever since I realized running was quickly turning my knees to dust biking has been my major form of exercise.
