    Default Bike to work day 2012 - registration up now

    Just moments ago, the official Bike to Work Day 2012 registration page went live. Find out all the details and register here: http://www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/

    Rumor is that at Rosslyn and Ballston there will be unicyclists riding around passing out Chik-Fil-A coupons and there might even be a bike giveaway to one lucky participant at each of those stops.

    I like how the photo on the bike to work page is a solid 50/50 split of "helmet" v. "no helmet." +1 for realism.

    Where will the best pit stops be? I'm thinking of having more fun with BTW Week this year

    I'm confused. Not a single one of these "pit stops" is on a trail.... you know... where everyone rides their bike.... Am I missing something obvious here?

    Well, not everyone rides their bikes on trails. And it's hard to find room on a trail for 900 square foot tents and space for 1000 people. In Rosslyn, Gateway Park is literally across the street from the Custis/Mt. Vernon intersection and serves many people coming from out west as well as everyone who works in Rosslyn.

    In Ballston, our best partner for hosting the event is Freshbikes, which while is not as close to trails as Rosslyn is still in a excellent location for serving workers in Ballston. FWIW, the Crystal City stop is just off the Mt. Vernon Trail too.

    I can't speak to the other 56 pitstops in the area though...

    ohhhh. I didn't know the pitstops were that large. I suppose that would be a problem.

    I heard that the Freedom Plaza stop wasn't going to be as much of a focus this year. I've been leading in a convoy from Falls Church for the past few years, but I always hear that the Rosslyn Pit Stop is way better. I may have to make extra time to stop there this year. All the newbies can cross the river by themselves, right?

    I've been hoping that this would be a good way to finally get the Occupy people out of the Freedom Plaza.
