    Did not see much cycle chic out in the suburbs, unless you count the photo bombing guy in the photo (a small portion of which you've already seen).



    W&OD cyclists in action. That's my son on his way to high school.

    Rosslyn at the shirt table



    Dickie was quite enthusiastic about his shirt



    Thanks to everybody that came by this morning. When I rolled past the Rosslyn bike oblisk at about 0530, I was #7. When I left at about 0945, the counter was at 1033!

    I don't know if this qualifies as cool, but it surely qualifies as surreal, bizarre and maybe hilarious, depending on your sense of humor.

    I saw that there was an afternoon/evening pit stop at Columbia Heights. I didn't feel like riding any more miles after riding to three pit stops in the morning (plus the vaporware phantom pit stop at the Columbia Island Marina), so I took Metro up there. I sort of feel guilty about it, but not really. I was also carrying a heavy bag, which would have been cumbersome on a CaBi bike.

    The pit stop was located in the civic plaza a block to the north of the Metro station, across the street from the DC USA shopping center. They were holding a raffle drawing. Only those who had registered for that pit stop were eligible. I don't know if we were allowed to register for a morning and an evening pit stop. Even if we could, I didn't register, so I wasn't up for any prizes. There was a Capital Bikeshare table. I picked up a couple coupon codes for free 24-hr memberships, which I can give away to others. I saw a bike maintenance area and the T-shirt table.

    Since I wasn't eligible for any of the prizes, I figured there wasn't much more to do there. I was also done with biking for the day, so I headed back to the Metro station. I lingered around on the corner, waiting for the light. I was tired, so I didn't want to walk quickly. Then I saw this:

    The giant inflated chicken person wobbled over to the plaza and past the bike pit stop. Each person that saw the chicken was stunned. It's not the first thing you expect to see while walking down the street.



    And that was it for the evening pit stop.

    I guess that answers the question as to why the chicken crossed the road
