Having worked late for a meeting last night, I took a few hours of comp time this morning and went on a quick bike ride around DC. I set my alarm for 7:30, hoping to sqeeze in 1.5-2 hours of riding and picture taking. I had lent my camera to my Dad over the weekend and was excited to have it back and play around with it.
Somehow, I slept through my alarm and woke up at 8:13. With 2 hours and 47 minutes to kill before I was expected at work, I rushed out the door and squeezed in about an hour and fifteen minutes on my bike. I stopped a few times along the way so I ended up riding 13.26 miles at an average speed of about 14.7 mph. The sky was gray but the temperature was perfect and it was a great way to start my day. Enjoy some of my morning views around the city, and in Virginia.
