WCB comes a day late. For some reason I’ve been a little slow all week, which I blame on Daylight Savings Time. We set the clocks forward earlier than ever this year due to a new law that shortened the period of standard time.
We’ve had our first hint of spring, with temperatures in the 50s and low 60s on some days. Add the evening daylight and downtown D.C. has come alive. The Dusty Bike Crowd is out in force — you know, bikes freshly out of the garage for the first time all year, bare legs, no lights after dusk — so we have to watch out on the paths. Still, it’s good to see more and more people on bikes. Bike usage is definitely growing from what MG and I can see.
This week I round up some downtown views.
Here’s MG at Swing’s Coffee this week. The coffee’s strong and atmosphere mellow at our favorite old-timey weekday coffee stop.
After work, MG and I like to meet on the Pennsylvania Avenue Plaza north of the White House:

I also captured some neat bikes on my cell phone camera.
