I am a diehard bicycle commuter, making the 7-mile trek each way on the streets of Maryland and DC daily. I've been commuting by bike for the past 8 years, rain or shine. Not only does this keep me in semi-decent shape, it really gives me a good perspective for the bicycle accident cases we handle in DC, Maryland and Virginia. I hope you will visit our website - www.metroDClaw.com - and check out the bicycle riders FAQs we put together. You'll also find all of the local laws (DC, MD & VA) relating to cycling. Be safe!
