    Bike to Work Week is a lot of fun. Coffee and squagels in the Crystal City Waterpark. I owe my friendship with Komorebi and LSG mostly due to BTWW two years ago. Crystal City BID usually gives out good swag everyday and REALLY good swag for people that come all 5 days.

    If you come by on Friday, I'll be captaining WABA's tent at Crystal City. If you're interested in volunteering some of your morning to help me promote cycling and WABA, let me know and I can get you signed up.
    Do any of the folks who are volunteering for Bike to Work Week know if anyone will be at the CC waterpark by 6:15-6:30ish for set up? I've coordinated with work that I'll arrive late that week, but I'm usually already at my office when the stop opens at 7:00. Wondering if I could check in a little early

    Happy almost Bike to Work Day/Week!

    BikeArlington could use a few more volunteers for the Ballston and Columbia Pike pit stops. Please shoot me an email (erin.potter@bikearlington.com) if you're able to help out at those locations anytime from 6:00 am - 9:20 am.
    Thanks in advance!

    On a slight tangent - Ahead of BTWD, DC Dept of Transformation and others are planning a human-protected bike lane on 14th St NW in front of the Trader Joe's on Thursday, May 17 @ 7:30 am. I hope you'll be able to come out and support it --> https://www.facebook.com/events/153828995462769/.

    This will be followed after a full, productive work day with happy hour at Bar Roubaix in Columbia Heights --> https://www.facebook.com/events/458436844589856/.

    If you have questions, please tweet me (@handlebarsdc) bc I stink at actually checking the forum

    So this is my first BTWD. I want to try and hit as many pit stops as I can tomorrow morning. I bike from Vienna to right around L'Enfant plaza. Right now my list is:
    Vienna (where I registered)
    Fall Church (Little Falls road), is it worth making a slight detour to hit the East Falls Church metro station stop?
    Ballston (never been there/made that turn off custis so that detour will be interesting)
    Rosslyn
    Crystal City (gotta go for the 5/5 completion this week)
    District Wharf
    L'Enfant Plaza (is this worth it?)
    USDA (is this worth it?)
    Depending on timing, I may try and hit G-town waterfront too.

    I'm excited for everyone who are going to do the multi-stop route! I did that the last few years, and I would advise that anyone looking to do a tour-de-pit stops make sure to compensate 10-15 minutes for each pit stop (more if you see someone you know) when figuring out the timing. Also, it's easier for those heading towards/into DC because some of the pit stops farther out open/close earlier in the morning.

    For inspiration, here's my BTWD ride from last year where I started in Alexandria and did Del Ray, Shirlington, Crystal City, Georgetown Waterfront Park, Rosslyn, Ballston, went to work, and New District Brewing Co (afternoon):


    I'll let y'all know how Bike Everywhere Day 2018 goes here in Seattle. Happy biking!

    Visit the Ballston pit stop if you would like to see this collection of t-shirts - complete from 2002.

    PSA: for cheap helmet covers shower caps are with the hair dye at any grocery / CVS / box store. It's probably going to be wet tomorrow.

    Note that they moved the Freedom Plaza stop indoors.

    From the email they sent: "the Freedom Plaza pit stop will be relocated across the street to the lobby of the National Theatre, 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, across from the on-site DC Circulator bus."

    It was outside on Boat to Work Day. They were giving out t-shirts in the Circulator. I guess they wimped out this year.
