Even though it's January, there are some items of cycling interest to think about:
Saturday Rides...Really!
 Yes, even though it's Winter, there are often a few hardy souls out there Saturday mornings at the Park and Ride. The rides are scheduled for 10 AM, but it's best to call a friend to make sure you'll have company. If you don't know a phone number, check with Ken Keeler, 202 641-4677.
Stop, Swap, and Save!
The STOP, SWAP AND SAVE is the place to sell your old parts and bikes or take advantage of unbelievable deals on everything you need for a great season of cycling. Buy, sell, browse, shop, trade or just hang out with industry reps, individual vendors, bike shops, manufacturers and like-minded cyclists!
Admission is still only $5 and includes thousands of square feet (yes, it's all indoor and heated) of everything that cycling has to offer. Whether you're looking for road, mountain, triathlon, BMX, vintage, new or used, there's something for everyone!
