Please join us for Cherry Blossom Bike ride from Bethesda to Georgetown (and back) with a detour in Bethesda’s Kenwood area to explore the Cherry Blossoms!

We will be starting from 7106 46th street parking lot (which is free on weekends) in Bethesda. The Capital Crescent trail is a short ride from the parking lot. On the way to Georgetown, will take a detour to explore Cherry Blossoms in Kenwood. Going to Georgetown will be a piece of cake (it is downhill). And we will have a piece of vegan cake after we get back to Bethesda.
