    Maybe in honor of occasion they can the APD to ticket the double-parking food delivery drivers who habitually block the Crystal Dr. bike lanes.

    Show up all five days and get a chance to win an e-bike? Sheesh - a raffle entry is quite a step down from a jersey

    I assume no jerseys because no Crystal Ride?

    Is it heresy to say the best BTWW swag was the National Landing jacket?

    Anyway, the best part of BTWW is still seeing friends - and free coffee and food, of course. I assume the latter will still be part of it?

    Thanks, Steve, for posting. I wandered up that way not long ago and was a little disappointed not to see lots of BTWD/BTWW signage around the old Crystal City site. I'm glad to hear that for the most part it's just been moved.

    Regarding food, there were bananas today. I expect the bananas are likely from Amazon, as there also was a Community Banana Stand set up a little further south on Crystal Drive.

    There was also coffee, almond croissants, and coffee cake at around 7:15. I saw them bring extra coffee around 8.

    The bananas were from Amazon. One of the guys had the Amazon Bananista shirt on today. The event is scaled down a lot from prior years, but still nice to see everyone.
