The Tidal Basin and the Waterfront Professional Review and Guide
"This ride takes you through some of DC’s most prominent and popular “waterfronts.” First you’ll spin along the C&O Canal through Georgetown and then make your way along the Rock Creek Park Trail to the Tidal Basin. You’ll then ride to the east side of the river along the Navy Yard. On your way back you’ll ride along Haines Point, a favorite destination for “Roadies,” before you make your way back to the starting point. This ride is enjoyed most during the early morning or late weekday afternoons when tourist traffic is down to a minimum. If you are going to do this ride during the weekend get ready to walk your bike along the Tidal Basin."
