    Default White House Helpfulness. A miracle tale.

    Four minutes into the torrential downpour, I take a left from the 15th St. PBL onto Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House.

    Officers are starting to string yellow caution tape, but the road is still open. No one stops or redirects me.

    About 2/3rds of the way to 17th, they have strung the yellow tape all the way across and also along the sidewalks and everywhere. I am certain I will have to backtrack all the way back. I start slowing and looking for some way through, but the tape is surrounding me on three sides.

    And then! A miracle! One of the officers who has just strung the tape lifts it up high and holds it for me to ride under and escape to the west.

    Me: "Thank you very much, sir!"
    Him: "You're welcome"

    You: The ten (I counted) riders who passed me in rapid succession yesterday (yeah yeah, I'm slow), all of whom called their pass.

    Me: flabbergasted.
