    The breakfast chinese food was great!

    I stuck to the coffee and bagel.

    All right, here’s my 15 nanoseconds of fame:

    Nice report overall, setting aside my contribution.

    Rosslyn: I was hoping for my annual replenishment/replacement of blinky lights, but they must have run out by the time I arrived at ~8:30. They were out of coffee too. :( OTOH, I got to see my good friend Dirt, and got a couple of t-shirts and a handy guide to cyclists’ legal rights in addition to the traditional water bottles and patch kits. :)

    Falls Church: Officially cancelled due to weather, but Bikenetic hung around to offer moral support and trailside repairs anyway – Props!

    You can see Shawn Dread and I leaving in the beginning of the video. His disdain for reporters is obvious.

    Did that one guy say he rides in “anything but ice or snow”? Someone recruit him for Freezing Saddles!

    DanB, sorry to miss you at the East Falls Church Metro pitstop! We were huddled near the Metro station entrance to stay dry. Attendance was a little, uh, light, so we still have plenty of the “I Bike to Metro and Metro to Work” t-shirts – DM me if you want one.

    East Falls Church (evening)

    The Good: Well… It was there

    The Bad: An empty table and a volunteer pointedly packing up t-shirts half an hour prior to the posted end time.

    Yep, same thing. That’s what I get for working late.

    It was kind of irritating, since I decided to forgo the happy hour in Arlington in order to show support for this Pit Stop.

    (Edit: in reply to a comment I made on their FB page, they told me they ran out of everything. Can’t fault them for that)

    Georgetown- First year for me coming here
    Definitely the Foodie stop – chocolate croisants, cupcakes, fresh granola, yogurt, gormet juice, etc, and coffee. Nice second breakfast.

    Here is the Paul Bakery and the Sprinkles tent. Yum.
    I also visited Baked & Wired and the Mal Maison tent, in the background, but not the yogurt place.

    Maybe this was unusual, though. I think they consolidated two locations in Georgetown into this one spot, at the waterfront park. It would be nice if they keep up with the great food, next year.

    They didn’t have much to begin with this year – I was there with Tim Kelley at about 4:30pm and it was the smallest I’ve seen this pitstop since they started it. Perhaps weather-affected.

    I actually saw that happen – 5.15-ish, collecting my swag (awesome Bikearlington sunglasses, no less), and while I’m stashing the sunglasses into my pannier and reach for a free bottle, a flood of cyclists descended upon the tent and took everything.

    For an education!
