This might be a fun family ride for people wishing to explore the Anacostia Tributary Trails. The ride is Saturday May 19th, starting at 8:30am at the Bladensburg Marina -- it goes along the NE branch trail (mostly) to Greenbelt and back.

I'm thinking about doing a "ride to the ride" from Greenbelt/College Park. We'd probably leave Greenbelt (New Deal Cafe) at about 7:45, go past Lake Artemesia parking lot at about 8:00, the Wells Ice Rink parking lot at about 8:10am and get to the ride start at just about the start time of 8:30am (just in time to turn around and head back to Greenbelt).

There is a fee for the ride, but I think they're providing food...

The trails are scenic and flat, with lots of places to park along the way. One particularly nice section is under construction -- however, there are nice enough on-road and off-road detours:
