Bike Parking, DC Bike Show

I am thinking of running down on the bike today, get there about 1pm. Is there any dedicated bike parking at the show? I remember last year we had a good long walk as car parking was at a premium.

When you look at the convention centers website, it states that parking is not available. There should be some small lots nearby. Also to keep in mind is that the convention center will be hosting the local news channel 4 "free" health expo. This means that half the city of DC will be there and it will be one crowded place. Here is the link for the health expo:

I went to the bike show last night and took the Metro. There is a lot of vendors there. My one disappointment was that "Now Hear This" did not show. I wanted Marylin to adjust one of my ear plugs. I guess I will have to wait until CCR.

Thanks Mike. I got on the bike to go down and the starter just went "wizzzzzzz" without catching. Won't be making it today. Long time since I saw you out in Denver getting your rear drive done on the way home from Breck.
