    Probably the worst part would be getting from Potomac to the city. River Road between the Village and Bradley Road lacks an adequate shoulder, is high speed and not bike friendly. If you have no...

    First of all, I'd like to say I'm not going to give anyone a hard time about a blinkie on the trail. It rates low on the list of grievances, but it's still an annoyance, and I think that on most...

    Yeah, I chalk this up to things people really shouldn't do, but do and moaning about it ain't gonna stop them. I do think it's really inconsiderate to run front flashers on trails, period.

    Third sighting this week of someone in full tri mode, tucked down in the aerobar position, at 8 a.m. on the CCT.

    I know this doesn't solve all of the River Road problem (and I feel your pain), but how about peeling off at Persimmon Tree and heading down to Macarthur, then hopping on the CCT at Sangamore?

    I used to ride it as a kid. It's unsafe at speeds much above a brisk jog, with lots of roots, off camber hairpin turns and trees right next to the narrow path.
