Road cycling: Beach Drive on weekends

Parts of the leaf-canopied road are closed to vehicular traffic between Military and Broad Branch roads in Washington, D.C., from 7 a.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday, creating a wide, flat, paved surface suitable both for triathletes in training and for families with young kids on training wheels. Those looking to add mileage or variety can wander onto the paved, 18.6-mile Rock Creek Hiker-Biker Trail or other adjoining paths.
