Ride underneath a canopy of native trees on the Capital Crescent Trail (CCT) along the Potomac River and enjoy every season on this ride!
Grab a bike from the Capital Bikeshare station at Woodmont Ave & Strathmore St in Bethesda, MD and ride downhill toward Georgetown, DC:
- Head west along the promenade towards the CCT
- Take a left on the CCT and enjoy seven miles of trail riding
- Cross the canal and continue along the trail, with the Potomac River to your right
- You'll emerge from the trail onto Water St NW in Georgetown
Dock your bike at the 33rd & Water St NW station to end your ride. From there, you can enjoy the views, tastes and shopping destinations of Georgetown's waterfront on foot!
Local tip: This ride is a little over seven miles long and will take most riders 30-45 minutes. If you need a quick breather along the way, stop in at the station at River Rd & Landy Ln and take a break.
