Halloween Weekend in our Nation’s Capital


Saturday was a terrific day for bicycling in Washington D.C. Most of the major streets were closed to car traffic and we could pretty well cruise anywhere we wanted to go without fear of being run over. Plus, it turned out to be very entertaining watching tens of thousands of fun loving people attracted to the Jon Stewart/Steven Colbert rally on the Mall and various Halloween parties around the city. Below is a brief collection of some of the signs we saw. Special thanks to Erinn Andrews of Philanthropedia for sharing some of her favorite pictures from the rally!
