    Default Crystal City Bike to Work Week

    The Crystal City BID is hosting Bike to Work Week.

    Taken from the CCBID Website
    The Crystal City BID is challenging area commuters to take the Bike to Work WEEK (BTWW) Challenge and ride to work every day of week. During the week of May 13th - 17th the Crystal City BID will greet area commuters in the Crystal City Water Park from 7 AM to 9 AM with breakfast and prizes. The 50 riders that show up the most number of mornings during pit stop hours, will receive a free, Crystal Ride Wind Jacket! Complimentary showers will be provided by Sport & Health all week so you can freshen up before the start of your day. Sign up for the Bike to Work Week Challenge and try out your bicycle commute.

    That's great! Except I need to get on the road at 6:30 to get to work on time. 7-9 only works for people riding TO Crystal City, not from it.

    You are right, they do seem to be targeting the folks that work in Crystal City (which I think is great). Last year I had to work to hit the pit stop in Crystal City when it was open. I would normally blow through the Water Park about 0600 but put my miles on early and then hit the pit stop right as they opened.

    BTWW, in which Forum denizens add 6 miles to their commutes for a granola bar and cup of OJ.

    Wait, so Crystal City Water Park isn't an actual water park, like with slides and stuff? I got so excited there for a minute....

    It's bagels and coffee. Totally different. And you know I put a 2" layer of cream cheese on that bad boy.

    The conversion table I use says 2 miles riding per 1/4 inch of cream cheese.
