    Default Bike to work day ride buddy meetup

    I see that WABA has the Bike-2-work day site up at http://www.biketoworkmetrodc.org/ . The website directs everyone here to find a ride buddy. I thought I would break the ice:

    Name: Mike E.
    Start: Fairfax 05:45
    Pitstop: Rosslyn 07:00
    Finish: Navy Yard 07:45

    OK, I'm registered. I plan to to my Tour de Pit Stops starting with Old Town Alexandria, then Crystal City, then Ballston, and finishing up in Rosslyn. About a 25 mile tour.

    Default FC Pit Stop Rally

    i am registered at FC Pit Stop...it is barely a mile into my commute on W&OD to SE Waterfront, DC. I'll stop there to support FC cycling.

    Happy to rally there and ride in to DC (pit stopping at rosslyn) with anyone. I'd like to stop at Freedom Plaza before heading in to the office at 12th/D SE.

    Adam - I will probably be at the Falls Church pitstop around 6:30. I'd be happy to ride in to Rosslyn with you, but then again the whole W&OD will probably feel like a convoy.

    See you there.

    I'll probably get on the road early (6AM) from Falls Church to avoid my previous experience where I said "on your left" 88 times between East Falls Church and MVT.

    I go from Reston to Great Falls if anyone wants to ride along. I've been doing this commute for over a year and have never seen another cyclist, so I suspect thats a long shot.

    The FC stop is on my regular commute, but I always miss it on BTWD leading convoys. Attendance has been low the past few years, so maybe I'll make it by this year.

    I did the tour last year - Capitol Hill, Freedom Plaza, and Rosslyn - but I'll probably just go to Rosslyn this year. Depends how nice the weather is that day.

    Just get old a slow and you'll no longer have that problem.

    If anyone needs a buddy to get from Vienna to the Farragut North area on Bike to Work Day or any other day, to arrive about 8:45 a.m., feel free to contact me by PM.
