    You don't have to be late for work, just start earlier - the Del Ray pit stop opens at 6 am.

    And yet again, I'm jealous of Virginia. The only stop in the Bethesda area that opens that early is Naval Support Activity Bethesda. And it requires a security screening, so I suspect that what I gained by going early would be offset by it taking a lot of time to get in and out.

    Ouch. How about I be sugary and say "all the stops will be a great since you will meet cool people and solidify your resolve to commute by bike more."

    Hmm, you may get me to skip the Shirleton one and head there.

    I got an awesome squeeze water bottle at the Plaza once. And AAA sometimes has a booth there - it's fun to watch that unfold.

    I registered for a Metro bike pass there once. Remember those?
