    The Bridge to Nowhere is the pedestrian bridge over 66 at the top of the hill-like structure in the Moguls.

    The Twin Sisters are the hill climbing to the bridge over the off-ramp at Glebe Road.

    I just thought that Fairfax Drive and Clarendon Blvd. would be considered commercial corridors and would have been swept already. Sorry, my mistake.:rolleyes:

    I'm having problems with Fitness Sync uploading two rides to MapMyRide for every Strava ride I have. When I look at the Fitness Syncer dashboard, it does not have multiple rides. Any solutions?

    Given all the loose crap on the road and usual car traffic patterns, gravel naturally will accumulate there at the corner of Glebe and Fairfax. What we need is more bike commuters with 40mm tires to...

    There is a short hill from Joyce Street and then a gradual downhill to the Glebe Road interchange. You may want to stay on Army Navy all the way to 26th. See the above post for a map.
