    So here's my guess. German bikes used to come with a small tool bag located behind the seat. (See picture.) Maybe what's on your bike used to hold a special toolkit, and there was a cover on it that...

    Awfully quiet on the trail. Thought there'd be more activity, because the rain had stopped early this a.m. with no more expected until late. Maybe everyone's already off for the weekend?

    The sign is missing at the Shreve Road crossing on the W&OD. It's the one located between lanes and warns cars about the trail crossing. The sign's base is still there, though. I'm concerned that a...

    I agree. Each house has its own kitchen. Like many newer townhouse developments, there's a building where larger groups can get together and eat since that's not feasible in the small-ish homes.

    One thing to watch, I found this on the Fire Marshal Plan (last page of the application). It shows the fire truck turn-around which appears to overlap the trail. I don't have a problem with the fire...

    LEED Electric Bike Conversion Kits
