Lake Artemesia and Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Bike Ride
Saturday, July 14, 2018
College Park, MD
Herbert Wells Ice Arena
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
$10 members, $15 non-members
Level: 15.0 miles
Flat, paved trails and streets. Suitable for beginners as well as patient experienced riders.
We will ride portions of two trails (Northwest Branch Trail and the Anacostia River Trail) to visit Lake Artemesia and Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, both largely undiscovered gems. At Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens we can expect to see acres of pools of lotus blossoms and lily pads in bloom, as well as a variety of birds and other wildlife. We will be joined by a local art teacher who will instruct us on how to do quick drawings to help sharpen our powers of observation and preserve our memories.
This ride is suitable for all bike types. Please arrive by 8:45 in time to be ready to roll at our departure time of 9:00 AM. The ride start is less than 1/2 mile from the College Park Metro Station for those who would like to arrive by public transportation.
Registration Deadline: Thursday, July 12, 2018
