Congressional aides, bike/ped advocates and National Bike Summit attendees gathered at Garfield Circle in front of the Capitol on Friday morning take a tour of Washington, DC by bike and see some of the latest bicycle infrastructure improvements, including the new bike lanes installed down the center of Pennsylvania Avenue (!!) and the two-way cycle track on 15th Street.

Hosted by the Washington Area Bicyclists Association, this year's ride was dedicated to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), a member of the Congressional Bike Caucus, and in memory of those killed in the Tuscon, AZ shooting.

After a busy day of asks on Capitol Hill, Cycle Oregon hosted a special reception at Capitol City Brewing Company (next to Union Station) to thank all of the Oregon delegates represented at elected representatives and their staff of their tireless efforts to make Oregon a heathy and sustainable state to live, walk and ride.
