    Which PI tights have you been using? I just started commuting on my bike in late September, and have gotten by with bike shorts and leg warmers until this week. But with the temps in the 30s on...

    I'll have to go on faith on this one. At this point I am all about making the ride shorter! I do like your route around the tidal basin, though. It sounds like a scenic way to cool down from the...

    Well, I will be coming in fairly early. I usually am at the office by 7:00am. So good point on the traffic, which does seem pretty light that time of day.

    I was wondering about the bike route...

    Thanks for the clarification. No need to apologize. My ingorance of the area more than anything, tethered to the yellow line like I've been for the last two and a half years.

    For some reason I had it in my head that 12th Street didn't extend between Jefferson and Independence. But if so, even better.

    What about my evening commute home, since Jefferson is one-way? ...

    Thanks for the information, and great link! I missed that post. I will give you route a try as well. I little variety with the route will be good!

    I thought the cirlcle/promenade was elevated above D street? Is there a ramp that goes to street level near D?
  16. 14th Street Bridge to Potomac Center North... is this the best route?

    I am getting back into bike riding after a multi decade long break, and want to start commuting. I live in Alexandria and work at Potomac Center North, and have most of the route figured out. I did...
