    Long Bridge Park might be an option. Going through LBJ Grove will obviously take a little longer but it's probably better than Potomac Yards.

    Just noticed yesterday that at some point, the roots busting out of the pavement on the Mount Vernon Trail right at the connection with the 4MR trail (southbound side) have been removed and the...

    So "street closure" does include the pedestrian path along the Potomac? That's what I've been trying to figure out.

    For the record, Park Police informed me over Twitter that there WILL be bike and...

    I used it yesterday and today, no complaints. Admittedly, I'm going under Mt. Vernon in both directions, just being very careful for oncoming traffic when heading eastbound. Volume as been light,...

    I would see that once every couple of months back when Washington Boulevard was my commute. Never understood it, either, especially during rush hour.

    Looks fine to me, traffic is usually pretty light on early weekend mornings so you shouldn't have many issues. Alternatively, use the Mall to get across town, then head north from the Capitol and hop...

    Cyclist down this morning on the MVT

    Happened right next to the 395/14th St. overpass. I rode by around 8:40am, there was one person on the ground who looked injured. That person had their head on a backpack and appeared to be on the...

    I imagine straight along the Pike or one of the parallel roads until you hit the 27 underpass, then just take the lane past the Memorial down the hill to the intersection with S. Joyce. Turn onto...

    Will the stretch of the trail between S. Eads and the MVT connection also be undergoing renovations? And at that point, do you expect the section behind the water treatment plant to be open so that...

    Yup, doesn't sound like cross-chaining so my next guess would be the front derailleur. May be worth it to just take the bike by a shop for diagnosis. Otherwise, I don't know any natural predators of...

    Are you cross-chaining at all? (In the big ring up front and one of the big cogs in back.) Derailleurs can be finicky if you pedal backwards when cross-chaining. If you normally ride in a chain...

    Seconding KLizotte on S. Joyce Street. I'm curious just how many of the cars blocking the lane are from people double parking to use the USAA ATM.

    Call the police? It seems like they're the ones who would have to instruct construction vehicles to move.

    Otherwise, take photos of the situation, and send them to VDOT. Hopefully it'll make it...

    I wouldn't be able to do it regularly but would definitely participate! Are you thinking of doing this as a training ride or something more leisurely?
