    Yeah, I gave up on the WOD more than a month ago. So far I'm managing to find enough low-volume/bottom-tier local trails to get some miles in, but they are painfully boring and unpleasant miles. I'm...

    It's questionable for all kinds of reasons. But this is a time to be safe and not take any chances, innit? I mean, every time you bike you breath a molecule that was once inhaled by Julius Caesar,...

    It's a ridiculous ask to have DOT people out putting up cones so people can play outside right now. I'm sorry, I don't believe that the sidewalks anywhere in the region (that is, not desirable...

    There is already plenty of room for people to spread out, even if they simply don't like the room that's available. I don't understand your apparent fixation on making sure everyone can have an epic...

    Or, if people can't figure out any place to ride than the W&OD, they should just not ride and take a walk instead. The parks are closing specifically because people aren't dispersing, and instead are...

    Which swaths? IME it's the very rare area which has no neighborhood walking or biking at all. It's a pandemic, yeah, people might have to make some adjustments and settle for something less than they...

    In most of NOVA there are stream valley trails and neighborhood trails all over the place which are basically empty. Yeah, they're not as exciting as the regional parks, but they're a better option...

    I peeked my head out on the W&OD a week or two ago and just decided "nope" given how crowded it was.

    This part, yeah. But lest we scare people off the GCCCT completely, it's worth noting that other parts are well graded and crushed stone or even paved. It just depends which specific stretch you're...

    except for that one spot :D

    but in general, yeah, I'd recommend that route. My personal preference would be to not turn onto west ox road from fair lakes parkway. Instead, turn right on monument,...

    longest seat tube that gets you to the right height plus glue (epoxy)? If there's enough tube in the frame I'd guess the force on that little bit at the top shouldn't matter much--it's mostly there...
