Jul 16th 2011 8:47PM Its illegal to ride a bike on the sidewalk in DC and most are not comfortable riding a bike in city traffic...the idea to rent a bike is so stupid for non experienced cyclists! Washington DC is full of fast past, get out of my way, high strung, over achievers, this article is going to get someone killed!
The metro is beyond easy to figure out, pay for, and ride. The metro will get you within walking distances to all of the monuments and museums, the capital, white house. the national zoo, and trendy Maryland and Virginia areas. The great thing about DC, unlike cities like New York, is that all of these attractions are free so it wont kill you to by a $9 day pass for the metro!
To sum it up...this article is ridiculous, pay no attention to it!
