MAY 20 — Commuters and other riders swarmed the Bike to Work Day “pit stop” in Old Takoma sponsored by Takoma Bicycle. Guest organizations included the City of Takoma Park, Potomac Peddlers and the county Park and Planning department. It was a bright and sunny day for a change, but at 8 a.m. the number of bikers stopping in to pick up a free t-shirt, a donut, literature and bling was less than last year. A volunteer speculated that the recent long stretch of cold, wet weather has discouraged people from getting their bicycles out.
