With a load of coffee and a crowd of highly spirited riders, the 3 AM wakeup call for the 2014 Bike to the Beach was not too bad! In sight of the Capitol, the 500+ rolled out with a police escort into the early morning rush hour, just in time to escape the madness and out into the gorgeous rural Maryland scenery. I got to catch them at several points along the morning route, and at the 25-mile mark, the riders got a trip across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in buses and continued on another 75-miles to Dewey Beach, Delaware, most making a weekend of it all. Unfortunately, I had to cut it short and head back to DC around noon, but next time, I plan on being on two wheels and leaving the camera at home.
