ok everybody. last hint. you'd better show up or i'll punch you in the face.

in dc, you can register your bicycle at any police station or fire station. but that doesn't mean that any of them necessarily will have half a clue of what you're talking about when you ask them to register your bike.

also, this is a scavenger hunt, not a race. if you're just in it for the spoke card, don't bother coming, i'm not making any.

be there or be a complete loser.

it's FRIDAY. i want MARGARITAS. i'm thinking perhaps to save $, making them at my house and taking them to the park in a to-go insulated coffee cup may be the way to go, but i'm open minded.

anyone interested in happy hour tequila frolicking?

Chimbly:

I saw you whizz by (at a good clip, I might add...) as I was waiting to cross the street in front of my building (at 16th + Church Sts.) this morning. I would have said hi, but there was a speeding commuter bus about 10 feet behind you, so I didn't want to impede things.

So, er, a belated 'hello' to you!

Yeah, sometimes I wish I lived further up 16th Street, so I could fly down that hill!

[daibut]Susan, I think I saw you wiz past on Mst & 13th by that construction zone yesterday around 6:30pm? I had my yellow backpack on. I wasn't going to ride yesterday but you made me break out the roadie for a quick 10 miler.

Regarding Chimbly's Friday Frolickin': PNC, didn't you want to re-schedule the Arlington Death Triangle for this evening? I think we should combine them, 20 miles of margaritas around Arlingtown?

slowed down on the next lap to let you catch up, but when the whole train came by just before you got to the "man" and I just had to tag on! Don;t remember much other than just staying alive after that.

ok, it's done.
10pm, my place. 2440 16th st nw. bring beer and your DL drink cup. (That means a cup you can drink beer in without having anyone suspect it's beer!) we'll roll out as soon as the foreigner gets out of his sporting event.

dress warm, we'll be celebrating our nation's monuments, high life style.
