    This would be so awesome. I'm fortunate US DOT still has the $20/mo post-tax reimbursement but it's not much and a serious PITA to keep track of. Compare to the Metro subsidy of $100's per month that...

    Thanks folks! I'm comfortable biking just about anywhere in the city, was just wondering if anyone had any "nice" loops that would be good to take advantage of. I'll have to just start wandering and...
