Washington DC is about to receive a pretty important guest. Scratch that, Washington DC is about to receive THE MOST important guest when Pope Francis arrives in our Nation’s Capital next week. According to WMATA, “Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend events during the Papal visit, which will likely result in crowding and delays on trains and buses, and could produce near Inauguration ridership levels at selected stations.” Although all modes of transportation during the Pope’s visit will pose some challenges, experts agree that biking is the best way to get around. We’ve put together some helpful information for all those planning to BIKE while Pope Francis ROLLs (via Pope Mobile) through town.
