And the new kid (bike) is being a bit surly and standoffish

Sorry I missed it today. Two more weeks and my older daughter goes back to school, allowing me to return to my normal-ish schedule and begin attending regularly again.

dbb - side conversation: Did I overhear you say that you work with Building Energy systems (when you were bringing up the idea of top-10 lists for bike traffic improvement stuff)? Just curious - its what I spend my time doing when not riding around on my bike.

Hey guys, I saw this gathering on Dirt's Twitter feed the other day. Is there a secret password or handshake to join? Where does this coffee outing occur? Are newcomers welcome?

Thanks.

The secret password and handshake is just showing up at Swings Coffee (http://www.swingscoffee.com/t-m-e-swing-coffee-house.aspx), 1702 G St NW (right across the street from the Old Executive Office Building) between 730 and 9am Friday mornings. Very open and inviting group.

The password and handshake are so secret even the people that come to the coffee club don't know them! Seriously, this is just a bunch of fellow travelers and everybody is welcome. Hell, you don't even have to like coffee.

I'd say - Hot bikes, wet coffee.

Being a late bird, this is not something I could ever reasonably fit into my schedule, but it looks like fun. My son is starting middle school in three weeks and will have to leave on the crack o' dawn bus, so I will be up anyway. Maybe I will go and see if they let me in. I do like coffee.

(This morning, however, was reserved for a plumbing emergency that resulted in me metro'ing in even later than usual).

FCC is definitely fun and M.E. Swing definitely brews some GREAT coffee.

Don't be put off by my bike giving everyone the finger... It was kinda grumpy this morning.

I was going to comment on that when I saw it but actually had no idea what to say. It speaks for itself!

I made it as far as the TR bridge, and then bailed as the deluge had largely ensued. So disappointed. I havent been to FCC for about a month! So instead, I just had to continue on my way to the FCC.

I recognized dbb & vvill as you headed south on 15th St - I was heading north. Didn't have time for brain to process it was the roll out and say hello.

I was there but vvil is still on injured reserve. We are hoping he will be able to rejoin the ranks of the riders soon.

That was me with Bilsko right behind me.

Anybody going tomorrow?

I have to be in Alexandria at 10 so I thought I'd hit Swings in the morning, go back to Alexandria, go back to DC for work, and then go home again :D
