    Steve O is in luck. He happens to be related to a semi-professional quilt maker.

    The shirt seems nice. It felt soft. Unfortunately, right when the woman was going to give it to me, some officious person came over and said they weren't open for 15 minutes. It was 6:20 and I had to get to work, so I didn't get one. I was almost annoyed, but I don't really need a shirt, and when I went to La Colombe later, the guy gave me a free bag of coffee, and I do need coffee.

    Not sure I'll bother to sign up in future years though. I bike to work every day and am counted by the counters, so there's no point to signing up when I go by Rosslyn before they're open.

    This year's shirt does seem like a step up from past years, cotton/poly blend rather than 100% cotton. Which addresses the one odd thing about the btwd shirts--I rarely wear them to actually bike because they get wet and stay wet.

    My pit stop had no small t-shirts so no BTWD shirt for me. :-(

    I got you covered if you really want one.

    Sorry - your experience seems needlessly... dumb. But signing up does help the general BTWD numbers.

    Yes, that stop was open from 6:30 to 9:00. I think the volunteers were still being given instructions when you rolled by. Next year, come early and you can help set up the stop!

    You should sign up in the future so that you are counted regionally. The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (which is the group that puts on the event doesn't necessarily look at Arlington counter numbers) in the way that Arlington does.

    If you still want a shirt, you can stop by New District this afternoon to get one, or come by the BikeArlington offices in Rosslyn. They are plush.

    There are a few extra Smalls sitting on the counter at FreshBikes in Ballston.

    IMO these gray and yellow shirts look pretty dang good and are straight up comfy. I dare say I will be wearing this shirt all day and even on some more days. Thanks Tim and everybody else involved!
