DC is toying with the idea of a bike escalator for the 15th street hill in Northwest. Pioneered in Norway, the bike escalator is just what it sounds like.
Now look. I love both escalators and bikes. But put together, it seems sort of like cheating. I used to ride up this hill on the reg. (17th and Euclid what!) It’s not that bad. Seriously, why not just have someone carry you up the hill? Pussies.
Our good buddy Lydia, aka @fastmoneylydia (pictured below with pigtails) is gearing up to ride 200 miles in the August heat again. And she’s not doing it just for the health. Instead she’s out their busting her butt for the greater good, raising money and awareness for cancer research as part of the Pan Mass Challenge.

Our dear friend and honorary baby sister, Mary Beth is riding 200 miles in support of cancer research this August. Mary Beth is typically more of a ride-around-town-on-a-CitiBike type gal. But, in a few weeks time she’s going all badass and traversing an entire state, or whatever. Oh and she’s doing the race with her mom, who we also love.
