The best way to get downtown from upper DC and the Maryland suburbs by bike is via the Metropolitan Branch Trail.  The trail is interesting and colorful as you ride past nature and industry on DC’s eastern side.  The Metropolitan Branch winds through a cross-section of DC that is mostly industrial with taxi depots; car repair lots; and trash transfer points that serve the city.  The trail wraps around the Metro’s Red Line on the edge.  As you travel on the trail by bike or if you choose to hike, you pass the city’s Flower Market hub, north of Massachusetts Avenue, a brewery, sculptures located near Catholic University, and graffiti decorating the sides of warehouses.
