Be safe! LOOK before changing lanes.

I guess he rides in with his wife and drops her off. This was taken at lunch time. He's not doing everything right, but he looked to be a very skilled and competent driver.

So, until the BikeForums higher-ups actually split the regions more logically (e.g. Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast), DC-related stuff can go wherever, as far as I'm concerned.

Just my $0.02 - YMMV.

Tall bike on K st. The tall buildings reflected in CycleLife's window are in Virginia.
They are taller than any in DC, which has a height restriction. 13 floors is the most
you'll find downtown.

Also seen in Cyclelife's window.


If you are interested in renting a bike while visiting DC (and there is no better way to see the city),
check out Cyclelife. Specialized Tarmac or Roubaix for only $150/day and they can have it delivered
to your hotel. Zipp wheels, Garmin GPS, Power Tap extra. Sirrus for $50 if you prefer a hybrid.

I'm glad you liked them. I'll try to get some more better ones, but it's hard to catch the action. I should have got one of Marcus Cook award winner, AZ today rolling on K with a big box on the handlebars of his beautiful Vanilla. He was going slow enough, but I was even slower getting out the camera. I'm only quick enough to get parked bikes, guys talking on the phone, selling ice cream, pedicabs, etc. I'll keep trying...

Joel Gwadz, who posts at Gwadzilla.blogspot.com is my inspiration, check his blog for pics of bikes in DC. If you want to see pics of my bike parked in front of DC landmarks, I posted some in the Utility Bike forum in a thread titled "Utility rides, errands, and trips you did today".

Come back and visit sometime!

I was there for six years, bike commuting between DC, Alexandria, and PG all that time. Now I've moved south to Richmond, which isn't all that far away. I'll check out your Utility bike photos and the Gwadz stuff, too. Thanks again.

I made Joel's blog a week ago on August 12th as part of an LAB cycling class (if you look at that day's blogs I'm the second rider on the old Raleigh). He rode up to us as we were turning onto Mass Ave about 6:30 pm and stayed with us for several blocks shooting photos.

D.C. seems to be too bicycle-friendly to be included in the Southeast forum.

VV, it seemed to happen overnight here. DC is not Copenhagen or Portland yet, but biking here has grown a lot in a short time. More bikes, trikes and pedicabs are coming to a city near you soon, I promise.

Love that trike with sun umbrella. Alao looks like it has good carry capacity.

No, not my first one, my first apple computer died after about two years. This one, my second mac burned up within the first year, so Apple replaced it under warranty, of course all data lost.

I sort of over reacted about the lost photo. I have trouble capturing nice images. I was lazy to select delete photos on import. Learn from my mistake. This is my second computer, I understand PCs are even worse!?

Thanks for the tip. I see pictures there that I've deleted from iphoto. I'd prefer to have the picture I didn't delete, rather than the ones that I did delete, but it got hung up, just one of those things I guess.

What was the vantage point for those high shots? You have to be at roughly 3rd and C, where 395 emerges from the tunnel north of Capitol Hill.

Rooftop of 101 Constitution Avenue. It's the building in the very left of this picture. The structure just visible above the trees is the Taft Memorial.

Police riding in memory of fallen comrades. There were a lot of riders, I think more than a thousand, they were still rolling past this spot ten minutes later.
