    "Mirroring the after work, bike-commuter social scene, this year's Bike To Work Day will include five evening “pit stops,” with food, drink and other amusements. According to Douglas Franklin of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, “this year we have expanded the afternoon pit stops from two to [five]! Small number of events but I like the percentage increase!” Official afternoon pit stops are at East Falls Church, Silver Spring, College Park, Columbia Heights and the Georgetown Waterfront. Most afternoon stops open at 4 pm. See www.biketoworkmetrodc.org for details

    It's a mental illness. Dont stand too close to the people who keep uttering it over and over and over and over or you might contract it as well. The cure is lengthy and involves deprogramming (sorta like Clockwork Orange). My recommendations is to go on a nice bike ride during a wonderful day to a coffee house, enjoy yourself, and realize that the reason your are riding a bicycle is cause it is fun.

    Rule 6. If you arenít having fun, stop.

    Basically, don't be a wuss. I'm refraining from the actual language, but the link will clarify that for you.

    Saw this right before the Lee Hwy bridge over I-66.

    Then I stayed at the Rosslyn pit stop too long and got the chills. Thank goodness for the warm shower at work!

    I tried to go under the train tracks in the corner of Lake Artemesia at ~7:20 am. There was water, but I thought I'd give it a try. Three seconds in, both wheels were completely under water... <sigh>

    I hung out at the College Park stop before riding in with my co-worker. We got to Freedom Plaza around 9:15 and almost everything was broken down... <sigh>

    I got my BTWD shirt though! <smile>

    Nice! I got to Rockville around 7:10 and hung around for about 15 minutes. In the end, it really wasn't a bad ride at all. I've ridden through much worse. Light rain only. No wind. No flooding on my alternate route (avoid Bradley Ave!!) and no problems on the CCT at all. I think we (or at least I) got lucky w/ the timing of the storm with the worst blowing out by about 6:30-7am.

    I ended up hitting four pit stops: Rockville. Bethesda. Georgetown and Freedom Plaza (pics on IG). Fun stuff.

    Great work and effort by all the volunteers! I definitely would rather be riding than standing around all morning.

    My co-worker (lives in Gaithersburg) who I was going to shepard on his first bike to work commute bailed but we're going to have a makeup day for him next week.

    This also marks my one year anniversary of becoming a legit bike commuter. Bike to Work 2013 got me going and showed me what's possible. 6,000 miles later I'm addicted.
