WABA says Don’t Bike to the Sanity Rally

If you were thinking about biking down to the Rally to Restore Sanity this weekend, you might want to rethink things a bit.  WABA has said to TBD that they don’t recommend bicycling down, as there will be very limited places to park and lock your bike up.  WABA had tried to get Comedy Central to hire them to run a bike valet for $3,000, but were initially rebuffed.  Parking for bicycles is pretty limited on the Mall, at least in terms of thinks you can lock your bicycle to, but perhaps if you were to get a critical mass of friends, you could lock all your bikes together which would make it hard to take just one or two.  That assumes, though, that you’re all coming and going at the same time.

I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. Really ridiculous. I rode my bike to get pictures quickly and move around past the crowds at the tea party rally and it worked perfectly; I was able to lock my bike up at one of the makeshift fences near the blocked off roads around the tidal basin.

  2. I thought I would keep my bike with me. Sit on it, ride it, etc. What,s wrong with that?
