Friday evening bike ride, or, how I almost got killed in DC

Origin: Office
Destination Office
Via: Key Bridge, Georgetown (DC), 24th & M streets, Kennedy Center, Memorial Bridge
Miles: 6.5-7
Attempted homicide: 1

Biking through georgetown, in dense traffic (avg car speed = 5mph, avg car distance travelled without stopping = 50 feet), a cab travelling in the left lane aimed STRAIGHT for me (travelling along the curb), came within about a foot of hitting me, then swerved back into his lane and gunned it. He got all of 50 feet before having to stop. When I caught up to him a few seconds later, he was staring right at me, as were his passengers.

I shoulda gotten the cab number.
