Bloom already

Another spin up the Capital Crescent trail- Gina on her road bike, and me on the fixie with Sagada in tow. The nice weather brought people out in big numbers but the bike path remained rideable. Either Sagada is getting heavier or the uber-light new bike is spoiling me. My legs were taxed. We rode out to Bethesda and then back through DC. With the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the Kite Festival going on, there was lots to see, except cherry blossoms.

Gina and Sagada
After the ride we unpacked the kites and headed for the Mall. Me and kites don't get along. This was my third year at the kite festival and my third year without a kite in the air. Year 1: kite was too heavy and there wasn't enough wind. Year 2: Cheap homemade kite got ripped apart by the wind. This year: Fancy store-bought kite is missing parts out of the box. Next year, there's always next year...

C'mon, fly!
