Bike to work. [Jul. 24th, 2007|04:37 pm]

So I want to bike to work once a week while the weather's nice.

Starting from Maine Avenue, by the monuments, I need to get to Overlook Ave SE; parallel to 295 South. How the heck do I get across the Anacostia River with the S. Capitol St. Bridge closed?

WABA CCC [May. 4th, 2007|11:32 pm]

Has anyone taken the WABA Confident City Cycling class? I only registered today and am a bit confused about the email I received. It says "Bicycles are not required to participate in the in-class portion. If you bring your bicycle please bring a lock."

I don't know if I am required to bring a bike or not. I did try to email the class instructor but I have not heard back yet. My impression is that the whole course is in-class, but that implies that only a portion is in-class and at the same time bikes are optional with the "if you bring" one part. Does anyone know? (Yes, I could just bring one just in case, but if I don't need one there it would be more convenient to take off from there for the rest of what I have to do without having to take my bike home.)

I think what I really need is the Cycling With Confidence (Lab-Road I). However, at the 3 locations I was able to check online, it is offered weeknights at 6:30 in the 'burbs... not overly convenient for a city dweller who is rarely out of work before 6. Is there anything equivalent offered in the city??

Checkin' Out the Competition [May. 1st, 2007|07:08 am]

So, I'm moving to Baltimore within the month, which raises a few questions...

1. The MARC train will only allow folding bikes on the train. Since I live and work about a mile from the train station on each end, I was really hoping to be able to bike it (and, frankly, really looking forward to getting the regular bike commute in, even if it's a short distance). Does anyone have any experience with and/or words of wisdom on folding bikes?

2. Any bike shop recommendations in Charm City?

3. Does anyone know if there's a Baltimore bikers' LJ group?

Thanks in advance...

Tune-ups? [Mar. 23rd, 2007|02:03 pm]

*brushes the dust off the community*

Happy spring, everyone! All set to get out there and get the wheels spinning again? Or have they been spinning all winter? I had grand ideas of biking all through the season... But that didn't work out quite so well.

So now that I'm getting ready to hit the trails again, it occurs to me that it'd probably be a good idea to give the ol' girl a tuneup. As I'm not quite confident enough in my own repair abilities to do it myself, any suggestions on a good place to take it? Preferably somewhere in Arlington or Alexandria, not too expensive.

TIA!

I just joined the community. I try and bike from Arlington to Reston at least once a week. I used to bike everyday to work when I lived in Baltimore.

I wanted to plug a couple sites as well. http://www.baltimorespokes.org and http://www.planetbrew.com The first is focused on biking in baltimore city. The second is focused on microbrews on tab in the DC/VA/MD areas.

Just an FYI - I got a flyer for this in a race packet:

Join Team BBC, the Baltimore Bicycling Club and Joe's Bike Shop for a day of cycling, music, and fun in celebration of women's cycling. Ride some of Baltimore's most scenic roads then enjoy a women's-specific cycling expo and fashion show.

(Hope everything's not pink).

"The rides are for women cyclists but the festival is open to all."

their website for more info.
