    I cleared the pitstop at 0650 and got nothing but a patch kit. I demand my bagel!

    Not to rain on anyone's parade of pit stops, but if we see a huge upsurge in first time or occasional bike commuters this Friday, it might be difficult or ill-advised to race along the local MUTs racking up pit stop visits . . .

    Absolutely! This isn't a day for anything but setting a great example for how to ride on a MUT and be there to help people who might have problems.

    I may have mentioned this in another thread, but the City of Greenbelt is hosting a pitstop for the first time this year (by the pool/fitness center). The official WABA convoy for DC leaves at 6:30am and will make a pick up in downtown College Park. An unofficial convoy (taking a slightly less hilly route and NOT stopping in College Park) will leave at 7:30am. We'll be at the Lake Artemesia parking lot around 7:50; Wells Ice rink parking lot around 8am. Of course, if someone is slow or has a flat we might be a little late... All are welcome to join up.

    As always, here's a video showing the route:

    I'm riding from Falls Church to Bethesda, glad I picked the Marriott HQ when I registered!

    Default Can't remember my pitstop!

    I registered as soon as they opened registration, and now I can't remember which pitstop I registered for. I went to the Bike to Work Day website to see if I could look it up there, and it said I should have gotten a confirmation email from WABA when I registered. I never received a confirmation email. Did others get one? Should I register again? Wander aimlessly among pitstops until someone feels sorry for me and gives me a t-shirt? Advice appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Try the WABA Events inquiry email: events@waba.org.

    I did get a confirmation from WABA back in March when I registered. I supposed you've cleaned out your inbox. My registration on March 14th was shortly after they opened.

    Complain to Blacknell, make him work for a change.

    I was lucky, there was a foul-up with my registration so I had to be hand-processed.

    So here is the person to contact: Megan Van de Mark megan@waba.org

    In past years, I've had no prob. Just walk up and they are throwing T shirts out to the crowd. Not a big thing. "Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Please consult a financial ad visor."

    Rhinestones on the registration forms prevents automated processing.
