    New District Brewing had a PM stop last year that I went to. That way, I was able to drive to/from work in Columbia, get on my bike and ride to NDBC. It was a fine stop with beer and Bike Arlington swag. I'll do that again if it's an option.

    I confirmed with Mike that New District Brewing will be doing the PM pit stop again this year, so you'll have that to look forward to.

    I registered for BTWD at a (new?) pit stop on my way to either Union Station or the Anacostia Trail - Twining! I'm sad to miss the Crystal City week and the big Rosslyn party this year.

    Okay, it is official, I will be in town this weekend. We should plan a Bicycle Fun Club "Bike Commuter Christmas" party.

    Preferably not TOO many miles (less than 70?), since I will be doing a 150 mile gravel ride the next day.

    What would you take as bribes to organize such a ride on BTW Day? If you don't, maybe I will. How about morning - tour de pitstops? after that - kayak somewhere on the Potomac and lunch (I can figure out this part).... Afternoon ..more pitstops?

    Some of us actually have to (gasp!) work on Bike to Work Day, but this year I'm going to try to hit 6 pit stops before going to the office. Tentative plan: Del Ray around 6:00 a.m. > Old Town around 6:30 a.m. > Carlyle in time for the 7:00 a.m. raffle > Shirlington > Crystal City > Freedom Plaza. If anyone wants to convoy, let me know.

    I should be able to go faster than I did last year, but since I want to be at Canal Park before 9, I will probably want to hit Shirlington earlier, and thus will skip the Alexandria pit stops (also maybe shame at not volunteering? ) But if I am making good time I would head to Freedom Plaza, as I have never been there on BTWD. So Shirlington>CC>Freedom Plaza>Canal Park

    Edit: Looking back, it looks like I had plenty of time, got to Canal Park by 8:15, and that was with not heading out till 6:41. I really should be able to head out earlier. If I get out early enough, then I will go to Del Ray.

    Default Switching pit stops?

    Does anyone know the protocol for switching registration from one pitstop location to a different one?

    Outside of a few pit stops (like Del Ray), many of them don't check your name--they just hand you t-shirts and gear when you walk up. I think last year every pit stop I went to kept trying to hand me t-shirts and other gear outside of Del Ray. So if you can't change it, don't worry as long as you aren't trying to go to Del Ray or another weirdly strict pit stop.

    Or just register for a different stop using an alternate email address. I'm guessing that works too if there's no formal process to change your stop.

    Thanks! That was easy.
