I have skated it many, many times, both on the main route, M St to Pennsylvania, and side streets and from the end of the
Capital Crescent Trail along the water and up through Foggy Bottom (a nice route). And I got to skate Whitehurst Freeway one
time when it was closed. Now that is the route out of Georgetown to take!
It's not too bad. Well, skating fast around roundabouts in heavy traffic takes some experience. But not bad.
My DC startup(s) were on Pennsylvania on the NW corner of Washington Circle.
Bethesda is a good run to downtown, so that's not the same as Georgetown to K Street. You could easily walk the latter.
