    My ideas for a video of your trip:
    • the video is a hybrid visualization/slideshow
    • overview map of Arlington; the stations would "fill in" as you visit them (maybe something like a star appearing on the location)
    • miniature SteveO icon to show your position traveling to each station on Strava Fly-By
    • the photos you take at each station could appear in a top corner of the map in sync with each station visit
    • you could use videos from the GoPro of getting to/from each neighborhood
    • peppy soundtrack to go with the passage of time (hours of riding condensed into a few minutes of video)


    I'd love to help out with something like this, but I will be out of town (leaving early Sunday morning for 2 weeks). Have fun on the trip!
    Sounds awesome! I will hire a director/editor to take care of all this.

    By the way, one of the presenters at the most recent CaBi hack night shared an animated visualization of his TSP heuristic for visiting all the existing CaBi stations. That might take more than a day, though!
    Some guy rode to all the CaBi stations in the region in one day, but this was in the first year or two of the system. There weren't nearly as many stations as there are now. I don't think Alexandria or Montgomery County had joined yet. There may not have been any stations along the Orange Line yet either. So that guy's task was easier. There's no way someone could ride to every station in the region in one day now. The CaBi bikes aren't fast enough and there are so many more stations now, across a much broader geographic area.

    CaBi Quest Arlington is more manageable but even that is a lot more difficult than it would have been in 2010 when all of the stations were in Crystal City and Pentagon City.

    I have a much crappier than Tim's, but live near your first station. If you can't get to BikeArlington's Intergalactic headquarters, and want to use my camera, lmk.

    Or better yet, maybe Erin could drop BA's by my place, and you could swing by to pick it up...

    Default Rescheduled for this Sunday

    Barring any unexpected occurrences, the CaBi Quest Arlington will occur this Sunday, November 15.

    Same time and route. Starting at Lee Highway and N. Nelson at 7:30am, with coffee stop at Java Shack around 8:55 (+/-15). I have the GoPro from Bike Arlington and my new smart phone that has a front-facing camera lens (yes, all those selfies I took in the past I was guessing where to point).

    Hoping to finish by 4:00.

    Post Quest gathering TBD; suggestions (Ballston area: Buzz? Carpool?) and friends welcome.

    If you are interested in trying to find me, here's my list of stations in the order I intend to do them, starting at 7:30 or so. I am planning about 5 minutes on average between stations, plus a couple of breaks, but that's just a guess.

    I will be at Buzz Bakery for a glass of wine or something at the end. If you still need your last coffeeneuring point, that would be your chance.
