is that the Q Street Bridge that goes in and out of Georgetown?


the bike path that runs along side of Rock Creek and Beach Drive goes under the Q Street Bridge

Rock Creek Publishing uses the bust of the Indian that decorates this bridge as their logo

Jeff Nelson, who is the co-founder of Dischord Records and the innovative drummer from Minor Threat, was recently involved in a restoration project on this bridge

on my New Year's Day ride I tooled around the city
that ride took me through Mount Pleasant into Columbia Heights down through Adams Morgan and cutting past Dupont Circle towards Georgetown where I went over the Q Street Bridge and then looped under the Q Street Bridge
the ride was scenic and short

that ride also involved a two second exchange with Ian MacKaye who I could not resist to thank for the influence his music had on so many lives
