    When I'm heading north on Potomac Ave. Trail, I normally switch to the street when I reach the S. Glebe intersection - when the wind conditions are reasonable anyway. My least favorite segment of...

    I was riding on the street when a wind gust nearly blew me into the path of 2 lanes of cars. I think it was the same ride in which the headwind slowed me down to like 5 mph, which is not good for...
