Was anyone here riding Military Road in Arlington, VA last night? I cruised through, heading south, around 7 and was surprised to see so many riders out. I was especially surprised to see photographers. What was going on? I would have stopped but was already late for dinner at the girlfriend's house.

did the little stretch between Lee Highway and Lorcom Lane around 7:30 or 7:45. Don't know about anything special, I was just riding home the usual way.

Up near the intersection of Old Glebe and Military I came across 3 riders stopped. Then, as I traveled south, there were about 8 - 10 scattered riders heading north. There were also 2 people without bikes on the side of the road taking photos. Nothing spectacular, but I live near there and was wondering what was going on.
I'll guess two things.djg

First, is that lots of folks like Military for hill repeats--no huge long climbs but they do come one after the other. And some of the side streets heading from Military up to Glebe will throw some pretty steep pitch at you, as you probably know. But that's not really an explanation for a bunch of folks in particular on a given night.

Second, not unrelated to the first, is that I seem to remember AIDS Ride organized "hill training" that involved laps on Military Road. You might have seen one such group.
