D.C.Suburbs

Greetings from the 'burbs of Washington, D.C. I work for one of those infamous D.C. agencies that end in a vowel and live outside of the district. It is just too crowded, expensive, and not conducive to cycling.

I have two bikes, a Lemond Zurich I just purchased and a Specialized Crosswind I "borrowed" from my wife. She bought it a few years ago for herself, rode it about twice, and it sat in the garage for two years until I decided to give it try. I did, I loved it, and decided to get myself a real bike and got the Zurich.

Just curious, are you a friend of TrekRider? 'Cause he lives in the DC suburbs and has been talking about buying a Lemond Zurich...seems too coincidental to me...

Welcome to the forums. Looks like the DC area population has grown quite a bit and I'm just now noticing. Hopefully I'll see you and your new bike out an about.

Welcome aboard. I live in McLean and take the trails to DC to work, where I too am a federal employee.

There are several million people in the D.C./Baltimore/Annapolis area. I think I might know about 0.5% of them, and not one named Trek Rider!

I only know one other guy who has a Zurich, and it is a 2003 model, and I only see him once very few weeks.

Perhaps you are the resident paranoid?

How true. A few years ago when the rest of the country was experiencing a housing bust, we were booming. I mean, they were and are building houses, townhomes, and condos everywhere! I used to live pretty much in the country, and now I am darn near downtown! Makes me want to complain to the feds, but then I realize I am the feds!

Assuming 3,000,000, 0.5% would be some 15,000 people that you know. WOW!

Welcome. I am flying to DC tomorrow, staying 4 nights at the Marriott Crystal City, then on to Florida then to the USVI (St Johns) for 8 days. From what I can discern there is NO biking in St Johns, but there is in St Croix.
