    I took bentbike's 11th/14th street detour (from when the W&OD was closed in Feb for erosion issues) and avoided all of it. That section of the trail is one big mental suck for me.

    They did a crappy, crappy job of signing the detour. I knew the way I SHOULD go but I followed the official signs and it took me out to Wilson.

    Mine works ok...but the sound is soft and delicate that I'm not sure anyone can hear it. It does sound lovely though.

    Uggggggh. I don't mind riding through the park but the bottlenecks to get up onto the sidewalk to then get on the grass and around everyone will suck. Guess I'll take my longboard fenders off so I...

    I start looking over my left shoulder as I'm rounding the corner coming off the bridge and then hop off the curb onto the street before the monster electric sign at the end (provided there's a safe...

    Meanwhile, I'm over here like "aw yeah, the root/frost heaves are coming back on the custis where they just repaired it!" (the westbound downhill section near Uhle St)

    I won't cross the IOD without a white walk signal. If I get creamed, I at least want to die feeling smug.

    I rode past there this am and it looked like a tornado hit the park, the bench was destroyed.

    The SO lives on Lorcom so I bike on it a lot. Actually, now, I've amended my ride to avoid it as much as possible. The bike lanes are a joke and no one does the posted speed limit of 30, especially...

    Then it's easy enough to ride in the street there (also easy enough to just slow down since you're on a sidewalk). During rush hour, those lanes are always backed up (I admit I drive this way too...

    The official detour still has you crossing at the normal light at 29 and then riding along the north side sidewalk to get to Jefferson. Why would anyone cross at Jefferson where's there no light?
