    WHEN: WEDNESDAY, MAY 23rd, 2012 - There are three ways to participate:

    1:30 PM – Meet up with Climate Riders in downtown Silver Spring and ride the last 18 miles with the “Green Peloton.” Riders will be gathering on Ellsworth Drive in Downtown Silver Spring, MD between 1 pm and 2 pm. Riders must depart Silver Spring by 2:15 pm. Note: we don’t all ride together until we reach the staging area at the Thompson Boat Center, so you can find the Climate Ride support staff in Silver Spring, say hi, and then ride the Georgetown Branch of the Capital Crescent Trail to the Boat Center.

    3:15 PM – All riders will gather at Thompson Boat Center (corner of Rock Creek Parkway and Virginia Ave NW) at 3:15pm for a 3:30 en masse departure to the US Capitol. Be sure to arrive with a bicycle for this segment. FYI - you can pick up a Capitol Bike Share bike near the Boat Center and then return it to a station near the Capitol later. Use the iPhone app to determine availability. Note: Riders will pedal all together up Constitution Ave. to the Capitol Reflecting Pool/Union Square in front of the U.S. Capitol (at 3rd St NW)– please obey traffic laws and stop for lights.

    ~4:00 PM – Rally at the Capitol and Greeting of Riders

    We will have a photo opportunity at the Capitol with photographers.
    Thompson Boat Center is only 10 mins from my work, so I'll probably show up there. I'll be on my black folding bike.

    Would love to come but I'm way too busy. Also it looks as if our micro-climate may not cooperate.

    Climate Ride is rolling past my office window about 100 yards from the CCT Silver Spring entrance. Go riders go!
