    Del Ray @6:30 AM had warm cookies from The Happy Tart--a gluten free bake shop that I ADORE (even though I can eat gluten). This was the best start of the day EVER, and the Velocity staff handed me a chain cleaning tool for wearing pink, so that was a total win. I had some coffee and powerade too and snagged a water bottle.

    Crystal City: Not much going on. Confirmation that I got a sweet crystal city jersey. I had a bagel and more coffee, and got my t-shirt. Met KWL, who I creeped up behind on Crystal Drive for the 2nd day this week (so I finally said hello vs being a total creeper).

    Columbia Island: total fail.

    Rosslyn: Nice and busy. Had more coffee and some kind bars and a banana. I skipped the bagels, which I regret a little right now since I'm hungry again. Got quietly handed a women's sleeveless jersey from the Diabetes Ride person. A little big, but I desperately need a sleeveless jersey this was a serious win. They also had the car free diet t-shirts in a size S this year, so that was a win since I really like the design. Also got some sweet bike arlington socks, and ~4 more water bottles, and a t-shirt for my fiance from Potomac Peddlers. And more coffee.

    Freedom Plaza: more water bottles, random AAA light up stuff, snagged a a t-shirt for my fiance. And had more coffee. Person who won the bike was 2 raffle tickets after me, so I was sad

    At work now, with more coffee thanks to my coworker. I'm almost shaking from the caffeine, I feel AWESOME.

    And I now have 8 water bottles (which I'm slowly giving away at the office).

    Like pure gold...the color of my winning ticket.

    Dread and I almost got in a fight with Officer Friendly from the falls church police department. Phil from bikentic moved the cones every time the office walked away. Hopefully there wasn't a wreck there.

    Nah, I just piled on after you almost got in a fight and told him that it will be on him when there's an accident.

    DKel has already mentioned most of the stops, but:

    We also got a lecture from Officer Friendly, um.
    I was promised U-Locks at EFC!! We've got some new bikes in the family that need locks!! #greedy
    I received NO water bottles this year.

    The Tysons stop was OK. I hit that close to 9:00 when the singer was wrapping up. They did have a photo booth, so I got a photo strip of my-bike-and-me. A little odd, but nice.

    I'm feeling massively gypped right now.

    (No offense to any gypsies out there. )

    Are you going to post the pic you took of me behind your back?

    Having to swerve in order to get through a very narrow opening with constant two-way traffic is just bonkers. Half the people passing through veered around one side or the other just to avoid it (which was the safest thing to do).
