> any ideas on what would be cool and good some good riders to come?
buildings, however at the moment there are an awful lot of guards and
police in DC with a negative sense of humor. Marble is soft - steel
pins are hard. Hello handcuffs.
Rock creek park is full of trails, but no riding allowed (wink, wink).
It's too bad they enforce the no-riding rule at the zoo.
Freestyle at Dupont Circle is a good match. There's always something
going on there - a unicycling event would fit right in. Benches and a
fountain, though the fountain is marble...
The waterfront area near G-town has some possibilities, though it is
usually infested with beer-gripping tourons. Not a good vibe.
The've blocked off a couple of blocks of Pensylvania avenue in front of
the White House with good pavement. There are usually a few
street-hockey games there, but it would be excellent for outdoor
freestyle. There is a one-block park with a defunct pool/fountain
nearby that would be good for urban trials.
There are a few options for Muni if you head northwest. Great Falls
park (either MD or VA side) would be excellent, however they don't allow
riding off the very pedestrian bike trails. There is a pretty technical
section of the C&O trailpath just south of Great Falls where the floods
washed the trail cover off the bedrock, however I don't know if this
would be enough for a decent muni event. The staircase of the bridge
over the c***near that point would be an interesting trials ride.
Hmmm... what else.... University of Maryland campus? Kinda boring, but
they do have that nice water feature.
Ah - what about the park in Rosslyn right at the end of the Key Bridge?
It would be perfect for urban trials, and no one seems to give a damn
about the place. It's a one or two block park surrounded on all sides
by 4 to 6 lane major arteries; access is by pedestrian bridges 30' up in
the air with stairs and ramps down to the park. Lots of concrete
features. Can be rented for events.

half empty. Engineers think the glass is too big.
