    Now, if bikes get stolen their regularly, you'd think Metro would set up a security camera (at least). I suppose Metro has bigger problems. I mean after all they don't really need to boost confidence...

    I ride the sidewalk, so technically not salmoning. It's legal (I checked). I go slowly. in four years only one pedestrian complained. She was having a bad day, I think.

    After a two-week vacation I am back commuting to Rosslyn by bike. My commute involves taking a left hand turn from the Mount Vernon Trail connector through the cross walk at the I-66 ramp on N. Lynn...

    Somehow, someway I managed to stumble upon the right combination of clicks and holding buttons down to get the ODO input screen to appear. On to 17,000!

    Last night the bike valet was overflowing with bikes so you might want to get there a little earler than usual. An hour before game time is plenty.

    16,713 miles lost

    I replaced the battery on my Cateye Strada wireless computer but it won't let me re-enter the miles I had on it. Since there were over 16,700 I'd kind of like to remedy this. Any suggestions?

    You may note that the ride had very few churches on it. Heading into the city would have created a mess with church goers on a Sunday morning.

    I saw only one rider do something dangerous, on the u-turn at Key Bridge. Not the place to do a fast, close pass, I'm afraid. Only other rider of concern was the guy swaying back and forth for miles...

    They are protecting a gosling that you may not have seen because of the tall grass. I've seen geese do this a lot. They never make contact with people. No worries. Give them a wide berth.

    The trail gets busy before and after work on weekdays. It is bumpy and curvy and not great but it will do for your purposes. The good news is the trail takes you right to the zoo. You can't miss it.

    I live in Fort Hunt and have been bike commuting for many years. There is now an alternate route to the MVT for snow days. It is not great but I used it a couple of times this winter on my commute to...

    heaven forbid that drivers have to "go out of their way". Bicyclists shouldn't be held to a different standard.

    For those of us who commute from south of the Beltway to DC and North Arlington, plowing from Tulane Drive makes the most sense. There is no safe passage across the GW Parkway at Belle View/Belle...

    I managed to make it across Trollheim this morning despite the boards being very icy. Someone heading south bound wasn't so lucky. There was a smush mark in the snow where someone apparently went...

    I have also found a very fine piece of wire embedded in my tire. Not perpendicular to the tube but at an acute angle. Really hard to find. I think these come off of car tires. The only way to find it...

    My big worry is that the Park Service will get to plowing the MVT with all the speed and diligence it has put into fixing the Rock Creek Trail. If so, I will quite literally be dead before they plow...

    The Park Service has just as much responsibility to clear snow as it does to clear downed trees and repair damaged bridges after flooding and severe non-winter storms. They do an excellent job of...

    Here's my blog post about yesterday's commute from Fort Hunt (Mount Vernon) to Rosslyn. I used a 100 yard portion of the MVT on the way home, but otherwise avoided it altogether. Today's ride in by...

    Good: My work id fell out of my bag. Found it the next morning on the street a block from my office.

    I am concerned about getting there with the bike and getting home. NYC kind of freaks me out. Also, I've never ridden the SIF so that in itself will be fun.
