    I could do that.

    I might have to take the day off so I can hit more pit stops!

    No reason to let work get in the way of a bike ride, particularly on BTWD! Last year, I began with a tour d' pit stops with Consularrider and ended JRA with ArlingtonRider and Dirt out in Falls Church. Got over 50 miles and never actually made it to work (it was a compressed day so I wasn't a complete slacker). As I recall, we did about five or six pit stops.

    Cool

    I'm cruising Takoma to north Arlington (Marymount University in particular) by way of Georgetown Branch and Capital Crescent Trail.
    Happy to ride with anyone! Just know I go slow (average 13/14 mph, unless I get my curvy-bar bike before then...at which point
    i'll magically ride 5 mph's faster and can be ELITE) !

    I'll be headed from Capitol Hill to Lafayette Square (15th and H) via the Penn Ave lanes and the Freedom Plaza pit-stop. Probably try to hit up the Eastern Market stop too, so long as my snooze button behaves itself.

    Y'all should meet up with my convoy at Banneker near the basketball courts. then we'd have 3 of the team!

    Your convoy is WAY too early for me, even factoring in the need to hit multiple stops. I like being out that early, I just don't like getting out that early.

    I registered for the Discovery Plaza pit stop this year. I think I'll get there early around 7am. I'd be happy to ride with you up 41st St. I just have to make it to the Crystal City pit stop before 9am (wind jacket for free, maybe).

    So any advice on which stops are usually best for swag? Last year I got a water bottle and good snacks (all week long!) at Crystal City and good snacks and Potbelly voucher at National Geographic. But a wind jacket?! Not even close.
