Washington DC

The hubby and I visited some friends in Washington DC this weekend for a bachelor/bachelorette party. It was a great trip! Maybe a bit too much drama with all the drunk lawyers at the party, but fun anyway. And though I didn't have a chance to get on my bike this weekend (actually, I haven't been on my bike since the century...), I did keep my eyes open for cyclists in DC.

Bike commuters in the city were quite numerous, but infrastructure was light. I saw one or two bike lanes and some racks, but that was about it. The hubby and I rode the metro everywhere, and it was neat to see people bringing their bikes on the train for the street level portions of their journeys.

I did catch a glimpse of a SmartBikeDC bike rental depot. I tried to take a picture of it, but it was dark, so the photo came out like this:

Anyway, here's me down the street from the Capital in my Velo Kitty shirt.

I'm itching to get a ride in as soon as possible. I hope I can do that this week!

  1. The whole Mall/Capitol/White House area seems 'bike friendly' enough with jammed traffic and tour buses that bikes don't seem too necessary. It's a pretty fun town to bike around.
