I should be riding it. I think this Thursday morning (boss is in class that day) I’ll take it to the bike shop and have them make sure it’s ok… I think one of my tires is a little low, and want to be sure I don’t get stuck somewhere. There is a bike rack to park my bike right outside my office building, so that is very convenient… I also understand that it is only 4.2 miles to Takoma Park (where my office building is located) so that works as well.
I’m eagerly awaiting the implementation of DC Smart Bikes in the city, I think that will bring a great change to the way everyone gets around. I suppose there is no helping tourists, they just walk where and when they want, but the residents and workers of the city will find a lot of benefit to bikes for rent for cheap.
