DC United players commute by bike

According to the Post article D.C. United's Clyde Simms has embraced city living in Washington, Simms also commutes by bike:
While most of his teammates are fighting the morning rush, veteran midfielder Clyde Simms hops onto his gray Trek hybrid bike, makes two turns, crosses two streets, passes through one traffic signal, whizzes past the D.C. Armory and dips into Lot 5. "Door to door," he said, "I’ve done it in about two minutes."
and so does player Chris Pontius:
Some United players live near Verizon Center. Midfielder Chris Pontius and defender Dejan Jakovic are roommates. Defender Devon McTavish is in the same building. Forward Charlie Davies is in an adjacent complex.

Last week, Pontius began biking to RFK, a three-mile ride. Who would win a bike race between him and Simms?

"I'll smoke him," Pontius said.

"He's got a one-speed bike," Simms replied.
