    I've now ridden the mulch detour four times and it hasn't been bad. But my narrowest tires have been 32's and the tires I rode today are 55's, so I don't sink down far in the mulch!

    I'm looking forward to the next time that the Park Service does work on the GW Parkway. I assume they'll be building mulch detours for all the cars :-)

    Thanks for that posting, Dasgeh. I just emailed trails@arlingtonva.us about the hole in the brick section of the Custis just west of N. Oak St near Key Marriott. It's been getting steadily worse.

    I can't remember the last time I heard a catcall on the trails. If ever. I don't doubt at all that it is happening to women. But I suspect that the creeps who do this only do it when there are not...

    Yeah, I think it's some sort of marine paint. It doesn't seem to make it more slippery in practice. And it's good to know that the park service values cyclists lives enough to buy a gallon of paint...
