Fort Stevens Loop

A short route starting in Woodside and cycling to the historical sites connected with Jubal Early's raid on Washington DC in the summer of 1864. The ride includes the Confederate cemetery, the Union cemetery and the fortifications at Fort Stevens and Fort DeRussy. The ride ends with a short journey through Rock Creek Park and back to Woodside.

Historic Homes and Urban Nature Trails Ride

Last week, I found Bikemaps. I've found it a great resource for creating customized bike routes. Unlike some other bike routing apps, Bikemaps allows you to add landmarks and photos of the route.

This route offers a nice 6-7 mile ride of my neighborhood in Silver Spring, Maryland, showing various historical locations and the local bike trails.
