Participants in the annual Bike DC event talk about the city’s cycling culture. By Dawn Lim
Comments () | Published May 28, 2010
Kevin Rapp almost didn’t have a bike to ride for last Sunday’s Bike DC event—last month his $1,000 road bike was totaled by a sports car, which slammed into his bike, bruising his knee, and took off. A month later, the endorphin junkie started itching for some two-wheeled action again. So he borrowed a bike, jumped into his Spandex suit, and joined 3,000 people for DC’s annual 20-mile bike ride despite the drizzle and overcast sky.

Blazing on ultra-light race bikes, pedaling on tandems, lugging babies and dogs, or sitting back in reclining bikes, cyclists made their way through DC into Virginia on May 23 in conjunction with Bike to Work Week.
