Wow...thanks so much. I especially appreciate that you took the time when you do not habitually write reviews. I hope you return some day...there is so much more I would want to show you, and you were both fun ride companions.

Thanks for that fantastic review! I especially loved your bit about the Maryland Ave Cycletrack. I forwarded on to be shown to the City's administration so that they can see how important bicycle infrastructure is to tourism. Hope to see you again.
