    Default Trail Detour at Kennedy Center & Path by Lincoln Memorial Closed

    Don't ride downtown for a bit and miss all kinds of things. The portion of the trail between the Kennedy Center and the river is closed, possibly for the convenience of the road construction crews. The detour is pretty not ideal with sidewalk riding, numerous road crossing and going through The Reach where you are not supposed to ride your bike. Also, the path that goes through the volleyball courts south of the Lincoln Memorial is closed, I guess because renovating the volleyball courts that no one has been able to use for a year and half is super important. Your bike friendly NPS at work.

    The bike trail is being rebuilt between Virginia Avenue and the volleyball courts, with a new route tunneled through Roosevelt Bridge. In addition, the intersection where the parkway splits to go up to the Lincoln Memorial is getting rebuilt, removing the awkward "traffic circle". So yeah...I'm glad the park service is working on this.
