Washingtonian cyclists are hard core. (I have a few photos in the backlog to demonstrate this fact, and will post them this week.) However, since Washingtonians also spend so much money on their sporting gear as we previously reported on this blog, they don’t like to leave their bikes just anywhere. Definitely not at the Metro with all the old and used-looking bikes, and they couldn’t even consider just tying it to a tree. What if theives cut down the tree? There is a solution – the Washingtin Area Bicyclist Association is offering VALET PARKING for your bike. What they will not help you do is 1. store your little clip-in bike shoes when you change into walking shoes; 2. provide you with a shower; or 3. give velcro valet claim tickets as may be appropriate to attach to your bike tights. They will also not provide you with actual pants to cover up the bike tights, so please bring some! I don’t want to look at your bike booty or brush up against you in the inaugural crowds… ewww.
