Bikes Everywhere!

Bike to Work Pit Stop at Freedom Plaza Happy Bike to Work Day!  This morning, the bicyclists were out en masse at Freedom Plaza, where there was free breakfast, giveaways, and raffles (one of which I won– thanks City Bikes for the new messenger bag!).  Mayor Fenty spoke after biking over from the Capitol with a few bike-friendly congressmen, and there were various city agency heads to speak about the importance of biking in the District.  There were other pit stops at Nationals Park and the US Coast Guard HQ in the city, along with several more outside of the city.

Don’t worry if you missed the fun this morning.  There are still chances to keep the Bike to Work fun going!  This evening from 4-7 there will be a Bike From Work Rally at Columbia Heights Plaza.  So stop by and keep the good times rolling! More Freedom Plaza pictures after the jump.
