Can you ride your bike from mile marker 0 to the train station in DC

Yes albeit on city streets. With proper planning, you can ride on city streets with designated bike lanes. If desired, you can ride through Mall with all of its monuments as well. As I recall, it is about a 3-mile ride.from MP 0 to the train station.

It's an easy ride, as one commenter said, head down the path along the Potomac and then at Lincoln Memorial head down the mall by the reflection pool. It might be bit crowded with tourists depending on the time of day, but there are street routes too -- many options to get from Georgetown to Union Station.
