Photos: Bike Ride to Rockville, Maryland

I recently took a bike ride from North Arlington, Virginia to Rockville, Maryland. I biked across the Chain Bridge and then up the C&O Canal path through The District before navigating the busy suburban roads of Montgomery County. I stopped at Glen Echo Park and then headed to downtown Rockville. After eating lunch in the town square and walking around historic Rockville, I ended up riding the Metro Red Line subway with my bike from Rockville to Bethesda and then riding the Capital Crescent Trail into Georgetown before biking across the Key Bridge and taking the Custis Trail the rest of the way home to Arlington.

Here are photos of Glen Echo Park and Rockville:




And here are some photos of the Key Bridge from the new Georgetown Waterfront Park. A few days ago Percy Plaza was dedicated to honor the late Senator Charles H. Percy (R-IL), who was a stronger supporter of the creation of a new park in Georgetown along the banks of the Potomac River.
