    Trek Clarendon (formerly Revolution) and Spokes Ballston are the two LBSs I use. Yes, they are near each other, but there are reasons and times to go to each one. Having them both be fully Trek does...

    Rode an Arlington Loop today (and Tuesday), with 4MRT instead of W&OD where I could. Today was much improved over Tuesday, although all bridges still an issue.

    Yesterday’s warm temperatures helped to melt the frozen slush patches on the Custis. There are a few left, but generally easy to get around. And the plowing went to the East Falls Church station...

    Rosslyn Monolith broken?

    Does anyone know the status of the counter in Rosslyn? It hasn't been working for several weeks (month?). I see a few green lights near the bottom, so it looks like it is getting power. It is just...
  11. Ballston Connector closed? Or the trail on the other side of the pond?

    Early this morning (I gather they were placed sometime yesterday as they weren’t there yesterday morning) there were trail closed and detour signs around the Ballston Connector from the Custis and at...

    ???But drivers are asked to do it all the time for all the other detours they do. And they completely closed the road through the park for a similar length of time. Grrr.

    Interesting that ddot has the info but not the park. That detour doesn't look like fun for 7 months. They would be much better off closing a lane of the parkway for bikes & ped, but I...
