    I just saw on Twitter that there's an 8 mile detour around a 4 mile stretch of the W&OD in Ashburn coming April 11-15. They didn't have more detail - anyone know more?

    W&OD pitstops

    If someone were to ride from DC to Purcellville and back on the W&OD, where might be some good spots to stop for refreshments and perhaps a bathroom?

    Note that this is jurisdiction-specific. To do this in DC, you can open a 311 ticket either via Twitter or the website. They also have an app if you're really into it.

    While I appreciate the offer and think DC Bike Party is great, I would not be in favor of you all taking over FSLNHPP. It's a Freezing Saddles party, not a bike party - the whole point is to...

    It doesn't at all. The pedestrian clearly could use professional help. However, I have no use for the type of person who injects him/herself into an established community to complain about an...
