(from the WABA website): "WABA’s Vasa Ride, a tribute to the Swedish vasaloppet ski race, is the first organized ride of the year for many area bicyclists. Riders chose from a 16-mile route through DC or a 31- or 59-mile route through the rolling hills of Montgomery County, MD and Washington, DC. All Vasa Ride participants are invited inside the House of Sweden after the ride to celebrate Spring and enjoy the traditional Swedish treat of warm blueberry soup."
