Four members of the Porsche Bike team rode the Mount Vernon Trail 40 miles today, including a red Bike S, blue Bike FS, grey Bike FS and black Bike X. We started near the center point of the north/south point-to-point trail early at 7am to avoid the mid-day heat. We started the south segment first, then riding back by our cars to the north end. The trail is 18 miles long with Georgetown on one end and George Washington's Mount Vernon home on the other. We mostly rode along the Potomac River and had beautiful sunrise views of the river and the Washington DC monuments with a couple side adventures which totaled the 40 miles. Great ride with four Porsche bicycles!

Found a new back roads way to the Baltimore Washington International Airport bike path today. This route went through a warehouse area near the airport. Since it’s Saturday, the roads were empty making it a stress free ride. I noticed a DHL facility that reminded me of the Porsche RS Spyder … one of my favorite Porsche racers.

Found a Porsche Bike article in the February 1998 edition of Porsche Panorama today. The four-page story was a review of the first-gen Bike S and Bike FS by a PCA Potomac Region member. I do believe this is the first Porsche Bike story in the PCA publication.
