And speaking of bikes, I just got back from a weekend in Philadelphia and that city is lousy with cyclists. Bikes everywhere. Here are a few snapshots:

Spotted outside the Standard Tap.

Spotted in the Northern Liberties Neighborhood: Metal bike racks with glass-enclosed marketing signs for local businesses. This one was advertising the music line up at a local club.

Spotted in Rittenhouse Square: Tons of bikes, no place to park them. Cyclists ignored the official signs about not locking their bikes to the fence. Philadelphia needs what DC just created: a garage for bikes.
