    Does anyone besides kitty need a ride, and does anyone have extra space in their car? I'm giving lordofthemark a lift and have space for one more (although LSG has dibs unless someone else needs it more).

    Finally, what time is everyone thinking of getting there? I was planning to get there around 8:30 a.m., to allow time for check-in before the official 9:00 a.m. start. But I could also start earlier.
    I can pick up Kitty, since CrossRip drivers need to stick together. I think Wheels&Wings asked about hitching a ride at some point and can swing by on the north Arlington tour to get her too.

    I have room for one, but my fork-mount bike rack won't work with a through-axle fork (if that's an issue for anyone).

    An 8:30 arrival for the 9:00 start sounds optimal.

    Great idea; thanks!

    Same here, and can no longer transfer registration, so it looks like I just made a donation!

    The final piece of my costume has been sorted out and safety pinned together. I knew that the awful free bag that they gave away at the DC bike ride would come in handy someday...

    And thanks Mr.T for the background on twitter on what type of camera I'll be carrying around (a Bell & Howell 35mm hand-cranked silent movie camera apparently!) Not the right era for TMNT, but hopefully not too many people will notice that

    Someone posted a bunch of pictures on Facebook. The TMNT crew ended up in a whole bunch of them: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

    That was a totally fun time on a terrifically nice day. Here are a few of the photos I took. I know others took some better ones than these, which I hope they will also share.

    Komorebi's Leonardo turtle was awesome! Judd "modified" his (read: tore apart to make less hot) Donatello

    Scoot was Raphael. Bentbike had a totally fantastic Shredder costume! As a villain deserves, his cape got caught in his wheel halfway through the ride, "shredding" his cape! HA!
    Riding alongside Shredder is reji in her Michelangelo getup.

    Wheels&Wings was a sexy pizza. Hard to see, but she included pizza slices in the spokes of her wheels (someone else has a better picture of this I am sure).
    Quite appropriately, the pizza was out ahead of the turtles most of the time, luring them onward.
