    This'll be my last Third Thursday happy hour before our cross-country bike tour! I'll be at Westover Beer Garden as early as work allows (probably won't get there until 6pm though).

    Has anyone joined one of these Coffee Bike Crawls before? Apparently there have been two before this. I'm going to try to make it!

    I have a 15-mile commute and I can't imagine going into work after that without showering. Hope you find a good way to make the bike commute work for you. Try looking into doing something...

    I'll make sure to get really sweaty on the bus and complain about the lack of bike parking. "I had to park my bike down the street!"

    Meant to bike to work today, but slept in too much (upstairs neighbors had family over and decided to play music all night).

    From DC, my plan is cross the Key Bridge, get on Custis, left on Veitch, and right on Wilson Blvd. In my memory I associate Veitch with a hill, but can't remember if that's coming or going.

    I'll try to make it! This is a better stop for me (I'll be less late to work) since I'm a reverse-commuter, so I can probably make it more often than DC's Friday Coffee Club.

    On most biking-all-the-way days, I have to be out the door by 6:30 or so to have time for a shower before getting to my desk. :p

    Good morning ride! Only hit by a few gnats (need to find my sunglasses). Remembered to bring sunblock along for the evening ride. Got to see some milling/paving work on Oak Street near Tysons.

    Ouch. Good to know. I did a little more reading online and it looks like kickstands and Surlys don't like to play nice - without a mounting plate for a kickstand, it might be safer to forego it....

    Not sure if this is the same group you saw, but we were passed by a group of riders from District Velocity in blue kit somewhere on MacArthur. That route is often used by teams training on weekends,...

    Kickstand for touring bike?

    Would anyone care to recommend a good kickstand for a bike used for fully-loaded touring? I assume it'll be a double-legged kickstand, as all the weight from panniers will likely render a...

    Looks great! I'm pretty sure I can make it. The Central Library is great - don't think I've been to any of the others.

    This is great timing, considering I lost one of my jacket pocket's zipper pulls recently. It's hard to take things out of your pocket when you have gloves on and no zipper pull.

    Ugh, I should have shouted a warning about the W&OD/Custis ice patch. I almost lost my footing (wheeling?) there, and took it a lot slower the rest of the ride. DC had no ice anywhere, so I didn't...

    I can't speak for the Tour de Cure, but Bike MS "Ride the Riverside" (this is the DC-area one) was a very well-organized and well-marked ride. I rode the 60-mile on Saturday and the 44-mile on Sunday...

    Yeah, the run through the van reminded me of Diamond Derby! Except in the Diamond Derby you brought your bike through the van with you. Meaning we're more hardcore here. (Or our vans are more...

    My work's bike rack has only one other bike most of the time - the one that's been abandoned there for awhile. Sad. I've gotten two of my coworkers to start bike commuting occasionally, but that went...

    Racing with the other neighborhood kids around the cul-se-sac growing up. It was fun to see how far you could lean into the center without falling (we did fall a lot).
