Really, how does one go about doing so? I'm thinking about spending my summer messing in DC before I start college in the fall. I've spent enough time in DC (and not just as a "tourist" either) that I'm fairly confident in my knowledge of the streets to start, and I'm very good at committing a map to memory. I've got a place I could probably stay (family friend), and I've got plenty of experience in traffic. Messing is just something I've always wanted to try out, and between high school and college, I'll have the least commitments. Does anyone have any experience in doing something like this?
Sorry SSFG, but I don't plan on riding fixed. I like being able to coast in traffic.
