    My commute is super-short (1.6 miles each way), and I have good luck wearing a big loose cotton t-shirt: the wind gets underneath it and cools off my skin. The drag it creates wouldn't be acceptable...

    riverain, I live right near you and you're right, Rockville Pike is a tricky place to bike. I second the recommendation above of the Bethesda Trolley Trail. For the stretch of the Pike between the...
