Cristina, my partner, participated in the annual EMS Memorial Bike Ride, that goes from Boston to D.C. in a week! I drove down Saturday afternoon to meet her and hang for the weekend. We stayed in Kensington, MD hosted by two lovely queens and their lovely daughter. In Kensington, it was easy to pick up a bike trail that connects to the Capital Crescent Trail, which brings you right into Georgetown. We clocked 36 miles round trip and some hella hills too! The trails were well-kept and smooth, save for a section of gravel that was manageable on a road bike.
As I am a bit of a Cookie Monster and ice cream fiend, we indulged in all of these things in the city. Late Saturday night, we hit the Captain Cookie in Foggy Bottom for cookie ice cream sandwiches, which were made with cookies fresh from the oven. The ice cream was slightly melty and oh so delicious.
On Sunday, after we brunched in DuPont Circle (I had an amazing crab cake eggs Benedict), we wandered over to Kramer Books and shared an incredible apple crumb pie wth a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You don't need to tell me to treat myself. Basically, I'm cycling and lifting weights so I can eat the hell out of some treats.
