Overview

The completely updated cycling guide to the natural, cultural, and historic treasures in and around the Capitol region.
This edition includes new trails and tours and all the post-9/11 access information you need to glide right past gridlock and into the natural, cultural, and historic treasures that enrich this bike-friendly region. Longtime Washington, D.C., resident Anne Oman, a seasoned cyclist, writer, and historian, is your guide to the trails and the natural and human histories that shaped this region's gentle terrain and rich heritage.
Most tours begin and end at Metro stops, so you can leave your car behind and cruise along tree-shaded pathways to the monuments and resting places of famous, infamous, and ordinary Washingtonians; to places of Revolutionary War intrigue; and beyond the beltway to apple and horse country.
The 25 tours range in length from 7 to 70 miles and offer trips for cyclists of every ability. Each tour includes a map, mile-by-mile directions, and the fascinating stories behind the scenery and attractions along the way. 19 black & white photographs.
