Bicycling to the Inauguration

Now that the District government has decided to close all bridges to personal vehicles from Virginia into DC, it makes even more sense to bike to the Presidential Inauguration. Metro will be packed, there will be limited parking within about a 5 mile radius, and it's a long walk from this side of the Potomac to the Mall. Why not go by bike?

WABA will be providing bike valet stations at the Inaugural event. Two locations are planned, at the Jefferson Memorial parking lot and north of the White House off K street (final location TBA). WABA asks that you RSVP if you plan to use the bike valet services. Check the forecast before you go: "In the event of heavy rain or snow there will be no bike valet parking. However, all the bike racks at the north and south locations will be available to lock to for those cyclists that choose to bike to the inaugural event."
