Its about biking to work in DC. The comment about "murderous buses" isn't true, I find the bus drivers the best drivers in the city, but recently here there have been some inexcusable accidents involving busses and pedestrians. I have mixed feelings about this type of single try coverage of bike transportation. The thing about avoiding Dupont Circle is weird too. I frequently bike around the circle, its easier on a bike than in a car. On a bike you can choose to bike through the circle or around depending on how you feel. In a car you can get stuck in a lane which might not be the lane you want.
