    As for your wife, I'd say that the course isn't that hilly except for the early miles in Rosslyn. There are one or two steep downhills there. If she is well-prepared for downhills (which put a lot...

    I've never biked during the MCM but I did run it a couple years ago. (Well, more like ran, then walk/ran and slogged through the last miles. Anyway... )

    Here's an interactive map from the MCM...

    They are taking comments on the proposal to enlist border collies to shoo away Canada geese from the monuments, memorials and the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall. I think it's an interesting...

    I resemble that remark!

    (CaBi Bixi bikes definitely qualify as heavy, upright bikes.)

    Yes, I believe it was Edgar Gil Rico. Now that you mention it, I remember him from the BikeSwell screening too, but not by name. I see online that he has a graduate degree from the Copenhagen...

    I think the separated bike paths on most of the river crossings are important. The car traffic on all of the bridges can be fairly high-speed and intimidating to all but the hardiest of bike riders....
