It is a great city to ride in. Sure, the potholes can be nasty, and city traffic anywhere can be a nuisance, but there’s a ton of great site-seeing to do by bike. I particularly love the range of things–from the downtown scene and historic monuments to scenic rides through Rock Creek and along the Potomac. There’s also fantastic winding roads through the country in nearby central Maryland. I also love, just for practical matters, how much easier it is to finding parking in DC on a bike (versus car).
