Interesting night in D.C. traffic. A huge group dirt-bike and four-wheeler riders — easily more than a hundred — tore by my apartment this evening, blasting through the red on H Street, many on the sidewalk or in opposing lanes of traffic, some popping wheelies. It was a hell of a sight. Mad Max!
Tweets followed the ride across the city:

At least 250 motorcycles, dirt bikes, and ATVs just roared down H. Doing tricks, running red lights… Where's the Thunderdome?

A ton of ground in half an hour.
Many more reports in comments on Popville. Looking forward to more coverage. Mainly who covers it. Real-time coverage… not there yet.
