Yes, it would

I'm in a conference in the nation's capital, I haven't been on a bike in two days and I'm jonesin' bad.

I love the DC Metro light rail system. It's like BART in San Francisco in so many ways, except it's cleaner, newer, shinier, doesn't stink, and I don't push through a phalanx of panhandlers to get into the stations. After lunch I have about an hour free; I don't know whether to see the tourist sights or just ride the DC Metro.

Don't forget the Google Street View contest!.

Before I came here I commuted from MD to WETA in SHirlington, every day. Loved it ... flahsed my "go everywhere" pass to get from two blocks from the house to the front door of work (tho' it helped to have a brother who worked out the transfers).
An hour-long one-way commute also means a 35-minute one on the cycle doesn't even begin to be "a long time," even not factoring in the pleasures of it.
 
I love this:

I don't suppose it actually goes where you'd like to go too. Or does it?
