View Full Version : Riding abreast! Police go cycling

So much for the riding abreast enforcement. Coming back from Hains Point this morning (about 0700) on Ohio between Buckeye and the bridges, a bunch of cars were trapped behind three columns of cycling police. There were two columns of 3 or 4 cyclists and a single rider in Police garb in a third row. The singleton seemed to be in charge.

Pace was maybe 11-12 mph.

I figure any time I see cops on bikes, it's a good thing.

I, however, am still smarting from getting pulled over by a bike cop last week!

I've run into bike cop groups fairly often, mostly on the MVT. At least there they are riding single file. Then there was one morning where every bike cop in the DC area must have been hanging out in the area just north of the Lincoln Memorial and across from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. I think I knew what they were there for at the time, but can't for the life of me remember it now. Must be losing the little grey cells.
