    Cross the 14th Street Bridge from DC to VA -> MVT north to Bikeometer Monolith in Rosslyn for a photo op -> cross Key Bridge -> Whitehurst Freeway** KOM/QOM segment -> U turn K street to Waterfront -> Rock Creek Parkway to Lincoln Memorial (another photo op?) -> National Mall loop, ending at Jefferson Memorial -> Haines Point loop to howl at the Full Worm Moon (BYOB) -> End of Ride.

    * March is the month of the Full Worm Moon. The Full Worm Moon was given its name by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.
    At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. In some regions, this is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

    ** not a designated bike lane. Alternative routes after crossing the Key Bridge into DC are either M Street or C&O towpath to 34th to Water Street to Waterfront and Rock Creek trail

    Tonight's ride is cancelled due the snow storm and closing of the DC/Fed governments. Stay safe, and upright, but please Sleaze, too!
