From MWCOG:

"Our regional goal for Bike to Work Day 2013 was a 10% increase over last year, that would have brought us to 14,000. We beat that by another 600 to reach 14,600, a 15% increase!"

Thanks for coming out everyone!!

Tim- Do you have info from the bike/ped counter on the 4MR trail: what was the increase in the number of bikes there compared to an ordinary fine-weather day in May?

Yes, I did a quick check on Saturday on the Rosslyn counter and remember that things seemed to be up for the day. I want to do a more in-depth analysis and blog post in the next week or so. Stay tuned!

Don't forget to look at Sunday too ;-)

So, I had a family emergency and needed to go out of town - any way I can get a t-shirt anyhow?

I've got 3 XLs left at my desk. Come and get one before they're gone!

We're in Rosslyn--drop me an email at info@bikearlington.com and we'll figure out logistics.

Will do - thanks again!

EDIT: You, Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. And I'm wearing an awfully handsome new shirt right now.

I have an unworn XL that I'd be happy to give away, didn't check the size when I caught it out of the cannon. Otherwise it's going to become a bike rag.

Clarification--I'm talking about the blue BtWD shirts. I think you're talking about the white "I [Bike Symbol] Arlington" shirts.

Yeah, how do we get those (the latter)?

We were shooting them out of a t-shirt canon in Rosslyn. It seems that people like them though, so we might think about getting a batch made up and seeing if we can selling them at the County building or at a LBS.

What do you guys think about cotton vs. tech fabric?

What's the cost difference? And is there an option for a tech fabric that looks more "normal"

Unsure on costs. The tech fabric would be white and normal looking as well.

+1 on tech fabric - I get more cotton event t-shirts than I can ever wear and am about to cull the hoard.

I would say technical t-shirts or soft t-shirts (basically the same). Not technical like most running shirts, which are more mesh, but closer to a really soft cotton feel.

Also, is is possible that they be in BA-Baby Blue?

I registered too late to get a t-shirt at my pit stop.

XL is not my size.

//pouts a little more//

You're right. I am. Any chance I can trade my "I [Bike] Arlington" XL for a Medium? Or are they all gone?

Upload the design to Zazzle and sell them online!

(I like cotton)

Partner with Phoenix and let them sell them at a small profit. I am partial to cotton.

Sadly no, I didn't see the writing on the packaging until after I had opened it. Still unworn, though!

Idea: Could the back of I [bike] Arlington shirts say "Love your commute" or similar?
