I'm in DC for an internship and having a very hard time finding a place to keep a bike near where I live (24th and M - by GW) or work (1776 K NW). The apartment where I'm renting a room requires $100/month for the privledge of parking in an otherwise unused and unuseable corner of the parking garage. I can store the bike with friends in NoVA but that kinda defeates the purpose (which was mostly to make it easy to run back and forth between NoVA and DC). I don't mind parking outside so long as its not terriably likely to be stolen (its an old DR250 so probably not a prime target). The duration would be roughly now till the third week of July. Any ideas, comments etc would be most appreciated Also, how do DC parking cops view sidewalk parking? I see tons of scoots on the sidewalk, but not sure a bike with a tag could get by with it (although its not much bigger than a scoot). Oh, one last question - this afternoon I parked in the MC parking on M street just east of Conn. Ave. - the sign says 7am-7pm. Is that strictly enforced? (I usually work later than 7pm and not infrequently arrive earlier than 7am).
