Fellow DC area bikers (especially commuters) - If you haven't signed up yet, do. It's September 22. More details at link below. Symbolic gesture, I know, but it's something...

from http://www.carfreemetrodc.com/

Washington celebrated Car Free Day for the first time in 2007 with about 1,000 District residents committing to be car free for the day. Last year, Car Free Day expanded to the entire Washington Metropolitan Area, and 5,445 residents throughout the region pledged to be car free. This year we hope even more drivers throughout the region will leave their cars at home or go “car lite” by sharing a ride to work. By taking the Car Free Challenge, participants not only help to improve air quality, save money, and reduce their carbon footprint, but also get a chance to win great prizes at the event.

On second thought, don't sign up... increase my chances of winning a prize! LOL JK
