    Starting off at 6pm, it rained on and off for the first 12 miles before becoming blustery and cold. A hot bath, warm clothes, and mug cakes make the world a better place.

    I'm pondering plastic bags over wool socks (possibly sandwiched by another sock). If that doesn't work, I have mixed platform-spd pedals, and I'll just go to wearing "normal" winter shoes.

    WaPo has more. The new metro access bridge should put some more eyes on the tail - I hope that's enough the cut back on this nonsense.

    Uhg - this is my route home when it's dark. It's either this, or one of the 4-6 lane arterials. Hopefully the future completed ART won't build quite the same reputation.
