    Try navigating it on a tandem or long tail with kids in the back, then see how you feel about it.

    The barrels are being used where there are roots coming through and the trail is unsafe, which is fine. This is big flex posts in the center of each end of the bridge, which seem to be for deterring...

    I hadn't been down on the southern part of the MVT in a few months, but one of the bridges just north of Ft Hunt now has orange flex(?) posts at both ends of the bridge. This is a bad treatment in...

    Just pave over the center circle and leave the yield signs at each entry point. There isn't so much traffic that a roundabout is needed to manage traffic flow - 95% of the time I travel through...

    My hope is that's a stub out for the missing segment of the W&OD or even a Custis extension.

    I just went through here this past weekend and this detour really frustrates me. The detour path is actually really good, clearly separated from traffic with dense flex posts, and properly marked. ...

    Not sure that Great Falls is such a great detour. Lincoln is much wider though also has a good amount of traffic.

    I’m wondering why they couldn’t do a mulch path or something similar.

    It would be nice if some of these “temporary” trails could just be made permanent, even if they are simply connectors into the W&OD in the future.

    It’s a short climb and much easier than the climb at the end of the trail near Mt Vernon. I’ve done it with kids in tow, though I couldn’t imagine doing that with a single speed.

    Yes, but this doesn’t solve the 4MR to southbound MVT contact point. You’ll need a full overpass and clover leaf to handle both.

    After seeing this, I’d prefer they just go back to the T intersection with the stop sign on the Custis trail part. Moving the intersection away from the overpass fixed the sight line problem, but...

    Went through eastbound this morning and coming out of the circle to the hill requires a pretty sharp turn. If someone cut the wrong way across the circle it'd be hard to see them unless you looked...

    I had no idea that was actually supposed to be a traffic circle. I thought it was just for decoration.

    That being said I rode through this new traffic circle on the Custis trail yesterday and...

    This happens anytime there is serious rain. It's basically where the water runs through and debris always comes with it.

    This design document doesn't have a separate bike path. Have they updated it since.

    Get in touch with Weehoo and check on their website. I had a couple Weehoos before and the company was really good about spare parts.

    I never really understood why Strava gave away so much in the free version. I think they would better thinning out the free version more and making a lite version at say $2/month with most the...

    New bike/ped path from Columbia Island to West Potomac Park. Nice alternative to the Memorial and 14th St crossings.

    Big missed opportunity to have done this on the original 495 HOT lanes expansion. Though highway corridors aren't the most pleasant place to ride, they are efficient locations to get where you need...

    Hains Point is closed. The road is blocked from past the golf course all the way around. You can walk/run there as the seawall path is open, but the road entrances are blocked off.

    It's...

    Despite the light traffic on the parkway, I wouldn't recommend riding it as cars are going fast and aren't going to expect to see bicycles.

    I do recommend that the Parkway or at least the...
