Saturday Rides on the Met Branch Trail -- First Ride This Saturday

With cooler weather in the forecast, the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association is sponsoring a series of Saturday morning bicycle rides on the Metropolitan Branch Trail. These weekly group rides will be a good way to get out on the Trail, have some fun, meet your neighbors, and get some exercise.

The first ride will take place this coming Saturday, September 17th from 9-10 AM. We'll meet at the Brookland Kiosk at the corner of 12th and Newton and ride from there to the entrance of the MBT on 8th Street under the Franklin Street Bridge. The ride will last approximately 1 hour and will be a round-trip distance of approximately 4-5 miles. And, when we're done, you'll still have the rest of your Saturday to devote to whatever you have planned.

Future rides will take place--same time, same meeting place--every Saturday morning as follows: Sept. 24; Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; Nov. 5. We hope you'll consider joining us for some, all, or as many rides as you'd like!

I'm attaching a flyer with more information. Many thanks go to Jenny Isaacs for her graphic design of the flyer. Thanks, too, to Jake Abbott of Abbott Klar for providing us with multiple copies of it for posting and distribution. Please help us spread the word.

For more information, go to or call 529-0953.
