First thing first, I Moved to MD 2 months ago and spent the entire time travelling with my family and friends to catch up with them. I have also been working on finding a job and to apply for Gallaudet Deaf University.
The great new is that when I turned in my application, I had no scholarship and was going to depend on financial aid/student loan. But.... as soon as I turned it in, the director of admission reviewed it and approved my acceptance into Gallaudet PLUS she gave me a scholarship (based on my grade and record) right on the spot that can cover all of my tuition for the entire 4 years! So I've been on cloud 9 since friday when that happened
So what this mean here is that I will be living in the dormitory there for at least a semester or two. I'm expecting to room with a few good friend off campus after this semester. So now I have to research on where is the better roads to ride on around there and near the metro (gallaudet is only a few blocks from the nearest metro station). I'm also having some difficulties trying to find out where is the best bike shop for price/service in the city. I tried to get to a few of these bike shop and didn't really seem like it too much for some reason. I'm hoping to find a entry lvl road bike for now. I may not be able to afford it right now but with the scholarship, I'll have some more of my money freed up over the next few months so I want to research in advance where to shop and which bike to check out.
I'm aware that there is a few sites online for the DC area but they seems to be mostly routes and group/club thing. What I need info on right now is where is the best Bike shop in DC (or other town near the metro, I don't have a vehicle yet)?
Thanks in advance for whatever info you can provide
the google map location is,
800 Florida Ave NE
Washington, DC 20002
