Fall commuting is in full swing! We've all encountered plenty of people on the roads and trails who are very difficult to see. But how does our own commuting wardrobe stand up to riding before or after sundown? Come to the Visibility Fashion Show on Thursday night to find out!


I worked with the wonderful folks at Proteus Bikes to add a new twist to this week's Potluck night. Wear your favorite reflective gear for after dark commuting. Proteus will also have some awesome choices in clothing and lights for rounding out your fall riding gear. We'll have a photo booth set up so you can see how your current night riding set-up fares.

The other great fall theme for potluck night is PIE! Bring your favorite pie to share with others who show up. Potluck night goes from 6:30-9pm.

We'll have a convoy riding from WABA Headquarters in DC to College Park. Nelle and I will be stopping for a bit of Visibility Inspired Advocacy along the way. We'll ride from WABA Headquarters at 4:30pm. We'll also be leading a the caravan back to town when things wind down in College Park.

Proteus: 9217 Baltimore Blvd, College Park, MD, 20740

WABA Headquarters:2599 Ontario Rd. NW, Washington, DC 20009

Let me know if you've got questions.

I think a visibility fashion show up and down Campbell Ave in front of Cap City is in order on Thursday. We'll do it after sunset?

Super thanks to Pete and Nelle for coming out to eat pie and talk about lights and reflectivity!

Trailer convoy, Dirt, pies! So bummed I missed this. Dirt baked pies and rode with a trailer from VA (etc.) with a broken wrist, and I couldn't muster the energy for the short ride from Brentwood WITHOUT a trailer to EAT pie. :(
