Hi Jamila,

The Anacostia River Trail (ART) system is great and should be fairly easy for you to access. If you can get yourself across the Anacostia on the bridge behind RFK Stadium (, you can then head north as far as College Park on a wonderful trail.

You could also consider joining one of the weekend group rides from Bicycle Space in Ivy City or Downtown. They do weekly Hills of Anacostia and Hills of Rock Creek rides at a social (no-drop) pace and would be a good way to learn your way around the city by bicycle.

If anything else comes to mind, I’ll post it here!
