|I am new to Road biking and I was wondering what it's like to Ride South on Beach Drive during the week? I was thinking of taking the Capital Crescent Trail up and then coming back in the park.
Any and all advice would be appreciated.

|Outside of commute hours, it is really nice. But it is heavily used as a commuter route for cars. And even though the speed limit is low through most of Rock Creek, drivers do like to speed there (as elsewhere). Enjoy.
|there ain't much room on the side of the road, either. Although||bill|

|I have done it solo (I think even once or twice at rush hour, which really s*cked), I don't like it. I feel a bit safer at anytime in Rock Creek Park in a group; they're not going to wipe us all out, you know?
You did know that Beach Drive is closed on weekends, didn't you? Very cool.

|It is a nice place to ride during the non-rush hour times, but it is very unpleasant otherwise. This time of year there is a tues/thurs noon ride in the park doing some hill work if you are interested in some harder riding.|| |
