    It was a fun ride, and for the second week in a row I found myself on a 60+ mile bike ride requiring groups of people to navigate using printed directions (last week it was the 50 States Ride). I...

    Just for the purpose of more information, the embassies of Iceland and Liechtenstein are also located there, so it could be the Icelanders and, uh, (Google search) Liechtensteiners.

    Alaska Trip with Biking around Anchorage

    I was going to post pics about my trip to Alaska about a week and a half ago, but I soon realized I had too many pictures to go through (almost 1,000 total). Instead, I decided to make a video and...

    I think that you should bring supplies for the entire day, as I certainly will just in case. I think any stops other than DC Brau will be on an individual basis (stopping to run into a store to get...

    I agree. Pershing is a nice road with moderate traffic, wide lanes (might as well have sharrows), and drivers that don't seem to act aggressively in my experience (probably because the aggressive and...

    You know, I've never crossed that little bridge over 50 before! I should try it someday.

    I will be there. I didn't realize I had forgotten to say so, though. I'll bring stuff from my Anchorage bike ride (at the very least a worn-out map) for those who are interested.

    DCA actually has 6 bike rack locations, and I used the one shown as #6 (most direct from the MVT) on their map: http://www.metwashairports.com/reagan/1187.htm

    The construction that closed off part of Four Mile Run trail near Long Branch in Glencarlyn Park has been completed, and that stretch of trail is open again. Looks like new pavement, too.

    I guess it depends on how far south of Route 50 you're coming from. My personal preference is to avoid Carlin Springs traffic when possible with avoiding too many hills as a secondary (but still...
