While it may be convenient to simply walk or hop on the Metro, there’s another way to get around DC that’s gaining ground and enthusiasm. The District was just named one of the nation’s most bike-friendly cities, coming in at number nine in a ranking by Bicycling Magazine.

The event raised nearly $40,000 for Vision Zero, an ambitious plan to rid the city of traffic fatalities, and for the Washington Area Cyclist Association.

While its commonly thought that younger people are the ones moving to the city, lured by exciting options in nightlife, plus the ease of public transportation, it seems that baby boomers are the ones moving back into the city in large numbers.
