Thanks to everyone that showed up tonight! That was great!
We had a pretty good crew out tonight!
See y'all again on Thursday.
Tim - I can make it to the Nov. 8 one. I might be there a little later than 4:30 though.

I may actually make it home before sunset and with no rain in sight (or hopefully not until after 5 pm), won't be a ninja.
See you out at the Custis and W&OD tomorrow.

Reason: just took another look at the doppler rader movement
I was hoping to be able to help out at the light giveaway tonight, but although I'm gaining on them, the alien life forms that invaded my sinuses don't seem quite ready to raise the surrender flag yet. Still hope to make the next one.
The Custis and W&OD intersection can be a pretty busy light giveaway spot. A good group will be on hand tonight, but I'm sure any last minute volunteers would be appreciated. We had a lot of fun at this spot last year.
Last year I had a zombie apocalypse in my nose, so I can sympathize. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Rock and roll!
I'll be there at 430, but if there's something I can bring (although I can't really think of what that might be), let me know...I'm planning on riding there straight from work, but my house is less than a mile from the site, so I can swing by quickly and pick something up.

I saw a bunch on the ground at the Rosslyn intersection of doom yesterday on my ride home. I realize it may have been windy and is difficult to see them in the dark, but making sure we clean up helps give cyclists a good name. At least better than the hoodlums that were celebrating outside the white house who made a mess on the pedestrian walk. 'bunch of freedom lovers! I remember Tim having a trash bag for the plastic bits last year at this location. I'll have an extra plastic grocery bag if we need it.

Reason: anyone remember plastikman?
I'll be riding through and will stop by too. But I don't think I can stay.
Sorry all. Something has come up, and I'm gonna have to back out tonight. Hopefully next week.
