Friday is Bike to Work Day in the DC Metro area. The day’s events are sponsored by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and Washington Commuter Connections.
What’s planned? WABA says, there will be 35 regional pit stops and opportunities for riding to work with experienced commuter convoys if you are a novice. The closest of the three pit stops in DC is at Freedom Plaza. WABA asks participants to register to be eligible for giveaways.
If you don’t regularly ride to work, check out the city map showing bike routes. In Borderstan, bike routes are on portions of 12th, 14th, 15th, Q, R, T, V and W Streets NW as well as Vermont and New Hampshire Avenues NW.
Also, The Washington Post has an article today, “Road Wars,” that examines “the challenge of merging bikes and cars on highways.”
