Rode CCT on Jan 2, 2003 as an after-lunch ride; day was cloudy, but trail's easy grade makes for the perfect exercise ride.
Rode about 10 miles, from downtown Bethesda (where I work) to Fletcher's Boat House, where trail parallels the C&O Canal - from an urban setting to a quiet, park setting. Very relaxing, and necessary after all of the holiday celebrations! A great way to burn a few lunch time calories!
