How long have you been with Bike and Roll?
What is your favorite bike ride in DC?
I still enjoy riding around the Mall and the Memorials. I never get tired of the ride! It makes me feel patriotic and I get that little kid feeling of being in awe.
Your favorite neighborhood in DC?
This is a tough one. I have lived all over the city. I would have to say Upper Georgetown, Glover Park area. I was born in Georgetown and my parents both went to school in the area, so I feel a strong connection to the neighborhood.
Favorite restaurant in DC?
Bistro Du Coin in Dupont Circle. Escargot broiled in garlic butter with French bread for soaking up the garlicky butter! Need I say more?
Best local tip tourists should know about DC?
I am really big on the Wharf—the oldest continuously operating fish market in the country (1805). Close to the memorials and it really has that old school DC vibe. Great food!
Favorite Monument/Memorial in DC?
Another tough one... I would have to say the FDR memorial. Not only is it beautiful, but it really covers some of the most significant events in our country's history.
Favorite park in DC?
Favorite museum or attraction in DC?
Dupont Circle. Always nice to see a wide range of eclectic people just relaxing, having lunch, playing games, etc. Great place to people watch!
The thing I love most about DC is its diversity. I love how the neighborhoods are similar but yet distinct in their own right. (Such as Georgetown, Capitol Hill, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, etc.)
