If for some reason you’ve decided to drive into the District from Maryland this morning for the inauguration, you could do worse than to take Georgia Avenue toward downtown. Riding my bike south from Petworth, I had pretty much the whole street to myself, as you can see above (the photo is looking north at Howard University).

Something tells me, though, that driving is still going to be a terrible idea today. But biking down an empty Georgia Avenue? That’s not so bad.
