Right, you will be there but where to park? Here is the scoop-or you could just ride to the ride like we will.

If you plan to drive to the ride rather than ride your bike (an easy ride if you live in DC or Arlington), park at Theodore Roosevelt Island (driving directions below).

The parking information came from the Bike DC website,

they also have a map.

To get to Francis Key Park from the parking lot, exit the parking lot at the North end on the bike path which goes up a ramp. At the first stoplight follow the sidewalk/bikepath to the right across the Key Bridge over the Potomac River. The park is at the end of the bridge.

Driving Directions: The parking area is easily accessible from the northbound lanes of the George Washington Parkway.
* If you are coming from I-95 to the south, take the Route 1 exit heading north. Next, make a right onto one of the cross streets, go about 3 blocks, then a left onto Washington Street. This becomes the GW Parkway, taking you
north past Reagan National Airport to the island.
* If you are coming from I-495 to the north., follow the parkway past the island and under the Roosevelt Bridge. Exit at Memorial Bridge (just after stone arch), and head toward the Lincoln Memorial. There is a traffic circle
just prior to crossing the bridge. Follow the circle 3/4 the way around, and get back on the parkway heading north.
* If you are coming from downtown DC, take Constitution Ave west. Follow signs to I-66. This will take you across the Roosevelt Bridge. Once on the bridge, get in the right lane and take the very first exit on the far side of the river. The parking area is just beyond the bottom of the ramp.
