This Is Bike to Work Day

Convoys of bicyclists from across the region will be heading into downtown Washington early this morning for the annual Bike to Work Day. Some of them will be doing this for the first time, because the event is designed in part to get drivers to cross the threshold and become bikers.

If you're not joining them, watch out for them. There will be thousands, and some may be a little wobbly.

If you are riding with them, you'll be heading to one of many pitstops, or rallying points, for the convoys. The convoys follow certain corridors, mostly from the Virginia and Maryland suburbs, to Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue between 13th and 14th streets NW in downtown Washington.

Some may be interested in signing up for classes in Confident City Cycling.
