Bike training in the DC area is both monotonous and exciting. How can that be, you ask? Well, it's fairly monotonous here in the city and the near-in suburbs. We end up riding the same routes over and over, and most of them are fairly (or extremely) flat. But get a little outside the metropolis, and you can find beautiful country roads with rolling hills and the occasional serious climb.
Most of our weekday training happens down at Hain's Point--a public park area behind the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. We do loop after loop of the very flat road--working on speed through intervals but we're really just getting the miles in.
Weekends, however, are a little different. Then we get on the bikes and head out of town. Often we end up out by Poolesville, MD, which is a great starting point itself. That's about 35-40 miles out from the center of the city, so it makes for a good out and back ride. If weather cooperates, we should be getting together a ride out there this weekend--with our team and other riding partners from the DC Tri Club.
