    Today I rode from 39th & Veazey st NW to Van Ness Metro / UDC and then repeated the same ride back again. I rode the same route. Van Ness is downhill from 39th & Veazey so I knew that I took longer...

    Can anyone report on what happened with this? I looked on the bikeleague page but it still said "take action today".

    On a related note, am I the only one who consistently has a wobbly seat which quickly falls to the bottom of the post and which I am unable to tighten? This seems to occur with increasing frequency.

    Thanks. It might be worth improving the signage from the metro.

    Thanks to your map and directions, I made it without any wrong turns but there were a number of places where I think I got lucky.

    I'm sure I'm stating the obvious, but consider metroing out to Wiehle-Reston, at least one way, to cut off what you see too much of. It's a pretty fast trip from Arlington.

    Wow, jabberwocky, That map is super helpful. Thanks so much. I got lost around where the stream comes down kind of at over 1/3 of x and up 1/3 of y if that makes any sense.

    Hopefully it would be less disproportional than the fee at Great Falls National Park where a 4,300 pound CO2 and pollutant emitting vehicle with two people riding in it costs less than 2 cyclists pay.

    Sorry if I missed it, but I would nominate the 27 trail. Of course, not sure what I will do at MVT and Wilson Bridge. Get wet feet, I guess.
