    Depending on how far you are willing to go out, the hill on Hunter Station Road is good. Just head west on W&OD past Vienna, when the trail hits Hunter Mill Road get off and make the quick turn onto...

    The 35mph speed limit is just a suggestion that 90% of drivers on Gallows ignore. When it is obeyed it is only due to traffic.

    This is a really cool idea. Imagine a crowd-sourced heatmap of problem areas. That way gov officials would know where to concentrate infrastructure upgrades/changes. Would be cool if CaBi integrated...

    The mix of serious riders and casual riders is not ideal. They really need to separate into two events (Time Challenge Ride, Family Ride)

    Even if they do that they need to do staggered starts and...

    Wow. I knew it was serious, but really hoped it wasn't that bad. When we went by they were motionless face down with feet splayed out, I thought the worst would be conscious. Please update if you...

    Did the ride as well and saw the aftermath of the crash you mentioned, when we went through it must have just happened. When we were waiting at the end of the ride they were doing announcements that...

    Commute in was good, glad there was no wind. My 10PM hockey game last night left my legs lacking power or will to move forward.

    This is the way I normally go out of habit. I didn't know about the alternative route on Van Buren for a long time.

    Ugh I seriously hate snakes. I have a mini heart attack every time I see one slither along the trail in front of me. I'm basically Indiana Jones really.

    When the Freshbikes in Ballston was still Conte's I stopped in a few times. Always felt that they were a bit pretentious and not super friendly unless your bike cost as much as a base model Kia. For...

    Taking the lane seems to be the best option, especially because the shoulders over the bridge have a lot of debris.
