    Thanks for posting. I can't make it, but would it be possible to raise the issue with root heaves on the trail from the TR Bridge to the main MVT? They smoothed these heaves a few years ago, but...

    I believe this is also in the NPS regs on the GW Parkway. But I don't have time to look that up today.

    Back in 2014, you could get a sticker to park in the garage - talk to security. There were showers in the gym (with towel service). Overall a great place to bike to work.

    I would imagine they will put in the new asphalt, then route the detour over the new asphalt while they take out the old asphalt.

    I've seen suggestions to use a bar end to replace that kind of thing, though you'd have to figure out some trick to attach it.

    Yes, there are lots of ebikes that will fit someone 5'4" & someone 5'9" and would pull a bike trailer. I would highly recommend buying local if they can, because they'll be able to get service when...

    I believe the issue is that this is brand-new, best-in-class infrastructure. The pole isn't the worst in the County and isn't that bad, but will make crowding worse at a very crowded place. There's...

    The only conversions I know of that are easy to take on and off the bike are the ones like the Copenhagen wheel. I wouldn't rely on changing one bike from e- to not often. Just get good locks.
