    I do have a lot of purple bike clothing, including lycra, which I'd totes rock if I was going. Instead, we're going to the March for Science tomorrow. Have fun!

    I can't pull off either of those looks, and I don't think anyone wants me wearing any lycra...

    Oh that reminds me, my balaclava. But I don't think I will wear that tomorrow.

    Everyone needs to screencap and bookmark this post as a reminder that drevil will need to dress like Barney in a future group ride/race where MANY pictures will be taken

    Also, I'd say that we're going to bike circles around you, but I know that many scientists at the march would correct that to convex polygons.

    Haha! Already done, but can't find a pic. The problem was the outfit was made for a 3 year old, and on an adult it was very kid-inappropriate

    If I can find another, I'll wear it for your next purple line ride, but I'm not sure if you really want that!

    I will be there tomorrow morning. I have purple socks and partly purple jersey. I will not be wearing a barney costume.

    Thanks for organizing Bobco.

    *changed mind. Can't work up the courage to be in the rain with 50F temps for 12-14 hours.**

    Default Purple Line Pics

    It was a wet ride, but in the end, 5 of us brave and purple-clad folks rode the route that the Purple Line will take if/when/hopefully/maybe/definitely it is built. My feet officially stopped being wrinkled sometime Saturday night. Bad ass points and my thanks go out to Judd, komorebi, LhasaCM, & lordofthemark for joining me on this tour of all things purple!

    Also, LhasaCM was the best-dressed as he had more purple on than even myself (and purple is my favorite color!).

    (left) Selfie at the start; (right) a generous passerby saw me struggling to get the earlier photo and offered to take this pic (many thanks!)

    While riding with Judd across 14th Street Bridge, I saw a couple of flashing emergency lights on the VA side of the river on the GWMP with an ambulance having headed SB, so I went to check it out and saw this. Note the missing chunk of the grey car's right hood.

    For the next Metro-themed ride I want to lead, I'm thinking something a little more on the VA side of things probably in June (I first need to ride the route again to figure out needed adjustments). I'm feeling a little... silver-y about it
