Here's a bunch of bicyclists stopped in front of me at a red light. Take that internet commenters!
Here's some shots of people milling around:
Love a good mill shot. I'm basically the Ansel Adams of "people milling around at bike events" photos.
For some reason, Bike to Work Day is marked through the gifting of t-shirts. I'd suggest socks, but that'd be way too controversial.
I accosted some local leaders and gave them buttons. Here's me and my Council Member. I look like I'm both very sleepy and very angry. My rage is narcoleptic. And here's the Director of Planning. I also managed to give a button to another CM. My unofficial goal is to get sharrows buttons to each member of the DC Council and the mayor. It's good to set goals.
At the pit stop, I saw many I already knew, met a few people I know from the internet, and exchanged pleasantries. It's was a nice gathering. I regretted that I couldn't stay longer, but I had to divert myself to Swing's for a #fridaycoffeeclub, where a few brave souls hung on well past 9:30. I didn't actually go inside to drink coffee. And then it was off to work. The roads were pretty clear and easy. Usual route up 15th and over R and up Mass. The creeks were fordable. The hills were climbable. The dales were, well, I'm not totally sure what dales are, so let's say they were dale-able...? All things considered, it was a beautiful day for a bike ride and I'm looking forward to the ride home, which will commence shortly. Enjoy.
