Did you know that Pope Benedict XVI was coming to town Thursday, April 17th? Me neither.

Did you immediately conclude that the visit is going to snarl traffic around the new Nationals stadium? Me too. The Washington Post, in it's blog devoted to the visit, agrees.

If you were clutching one of the golden tickets, could you ride your bike to the stadium, and safely lock it up? Maybe.

If you could find a bike rack, and you had $250,000US (plus shipping!), could you ride a replica of the gold-plated Colnago given to Pope John Paul II in 1979 to the stadium? Yes, you could.
