Good afternoon all! I was referred here by a nice gentleman from Reddit. I'm fairly new to biking and am looking to change that. My office will be moving from downtown to right next to the Noma/Gallaudet metro and is now close enough to home for me to start biking in. I'm looking for a decent route. I was thinking of taking the Anacostia River Trail down to the bridge at Benning Rd but was a little lost after that. Another user suggested cutting across to the MBT, but I'm not seeing any good way to do that, unless I go down Rhode Island Ave. I'd REALLY prefer not to bike RI Ave, its hideously bad.

Is there a decent way to get into the Gallaudet area without riding on major roads? I'd prefer a bike path but I don't see anything.

Thanks for your help!
