|Couldn't even get the whole bike in the picture.|
I saw some people in Nats gear. Weird vibe about town. I think we seem to be a little "too happy to be here" and not "in it to win it." My trite sports cliches rattle worse than my front fender did. In any case, it's easy to write that diagnosis now as the Cardinals lead 8-0 as I type.
East Capitol to Pennsylvania to 15th. Streams and streams of cyclists in every direction. Many of them were wearing scarves. Some were wearing corduroy blazers. Some were wearing both.
Two of the metal security bollard barriers by the entrance to Lafayette Park are broken and are down and it's much easier to ride through accordingly. I wish this was a permanent feature.
There's a homeless man in McPherson Square who sometimes yells "Good Morning, Biker" when I ride past. He yells good morning to a lot of people so I don't think I'm anything special.
I really like the chatty crossing guard at R and New Hampshire. He's really quite friendly. And it's a special secret that only pedestrians and cyclists get to know.
If you don't think that normal people ride bikes, you're not paying attention. It's a pandemic, but the good kind.
