Saturday June 15 6:30am we will be doing the LHL (Love Hills Len) century. Check with me first if you want to do it. franthis@Iwon.com

Sunday June 16th we will meet at the new George Mason National Memorial at 7:30 for a casual in town ride.

There is lots of parking near the Memorial past the 14th street bridge in Parking Lot "A". There is no time limit in the off street lots. Ohio drive has a 3 hour (not enforced) parking time limit. Park in the lot.

We will leave the George Mason Memorial by 7:45 cross the Memorial Bridge into Virginia to ride past Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial.
Next we will recross the Potomac on the Key Bridge.MB1

and hop onto the C&O Canal Towpath for a couple of miles till we get on the Capital Crescent Trail. Breakfast stop after 10 miles at the Georgetown Bagel Bakery in Bethesda.

Then onward thru Rock Creek Park to downtown. We will ride past the White House and plan to be back at the George Mason Memorial by 10:30 (perhaps 30 miles total-I'm planning on cruising) to meet any late risers.

If we get back a little early we can visit the nearby Jefferson Memorial.

we will regroup and pickup any late arrivals. 10:45am we will head out up Capital Hill to the National Aurboretum and Congressional Cemetery and the Titanic Memorial. Ride over by noon (just in case the Lakers are on).

Total distance if you do both legs of the ride-not more than 50 miles.

Anyone want lunch we can go over to the Old Post Office food court and take a ride up the tower for the second best view in town (no tickets required).
