From Jonathon Krall of the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee
This informal Community Bike Ride will take us on a search for the remnants of
the Washington and Old Dominion Trail in Alexandria. There is enough of this
trail left that one could imagine a trail/road bike boulevard parallel to West
Glebe including trail sections and Tennessee Ave. Probably not realistic, but
nice to think about. One section, less than a mile, will be on wood-chip-paved
dirt and some riding will be on sidewalks, but most will be on low-speed roads
or bike paths. We will stop often to point out where the W&OD railroad once
delivered passengers to St Elmo and Alexandria Junction. We should get back to
Del Ray in time for the Dairy Godmother to open at noon.
This will be a no drop ride.
