    They have essentially finished repaving between Ashburn Road and Cochran Mill Road. The center line probably won't be added for several months as happened in the section directly west of this.

    I rode on the W&OD trail today. They are repaving west of Ashburn. The horse path was so bad I gave up. Does anyone know how far it is being repaved (probably to the place they repaved a year or so...

    I was on the W&OD for the first time this year. I was surprised to see that this was apparently fixed. Does anyone know when it reopened?

    This is off-topic. Is it common for people to walk dogs at kennels? There is a combination kennel and veterinary hospital just north of the W&OD trail where the water fountain is east of the US15...

    It must be ridiculously cold by the soccer field at Clarks Crossing Park. I have always thought that was the coldest part of the W&OD even in warm weather.

    Does anyone know if this is going to be held this year, and if so, when?

    I had a goal this year of 1000 loops at HP. It looks like it will be yet another goal which I won't reach (802 to date).
