    I've definitely been there with getting lost on my first couple of trips on the trail. I've accessed different parts of the trail (mostly from W&OD or Telegraph), but have only twice biked the entire...

    I don't think it will bring much solace, but at the very least there is a bikeshare station planned for the area you described (Lee Hwy/Woodstock) in 2016.

    I wonder, did they mention that only the Bluemont Junction Park location is planned for 2015? The Harrison/Fairfax one is planned for 2016. The CaBi proposed locations map...

    In the context of expanding the bikeshare network long-term, yes, because CaBi will need stepping stone locations such as the 2 being proposed.

    I think CaBi's goal is to provide more access, not...

    Every time I pass through there I go very slowly because of this. I'm glad to see some enforcement being done.

    On Saturday, I covered Lee Highway between Sycamore and Veitch. One interesting thing I noticed about this stretch: there are not very many bike racks, but there is an overabundance of railings that...

    From my knowledge of the Bluemont Civic Association, they are pretty bike-friendly (they pushed for the bike lane reconfiguration for Wilson Blvd between Bluemont Park and Emerson St that will occur...

    I wouldn't worry too much about it as I've had no issues with taking pictures at the 9/11 memorial and metro obelisk. As long as you're not taking pictures of security-related things like...

    I like to incorporate the Potomac Yard trail, Crystal Dr, Long Bridge Park, Eads, and Commonwealth into a loop as part of a ride. Perhaps something like this: http://goo.gl/maps/qyI8m

    This morning, as I was riding on the Glebe Road sidewalk (I sometimes do depending on stoplight timing), a truck drove into a huge puddle near me, splashing a wave of water upon me. I did not get wet...

    The Future of Our Youth Cyclists Is Bright

    I had a found connection (and found bicycle part) on Saturday.

    Long story short (that's a lie), I went to see the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin and noticed that my left crank was REALLY...

    Well, color me surprised! I had never even considered connecting smoking post-Surgeon General's warnings to cycling of any kind, but my reaction to seeing someone smoking while riding a bike seems to...

    I live in the Buckingham neighborhood, and I strongly agree with this route. It is my preferred route into DC: Pershing -> Route 50 trail (I like the "Fort Cass Trail" name) -> Iwo Jima -> 110 trail...

    For the same reason, I take pics of the racks and wait until getting home before adding the rack locations & photos. iPhoto does a pretty good job of keeping the geolocational data for when I need to...

    Cherry Blossom Festival Fireworks

    I'll preface these pics with this: the BEST way to get to the Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms and/or fireworks is by bike. Easy to get in, and easy to get out.

    I headed to East Potomac...

    Eating gravel? Sandblasted? Someone better tell the local health clubs/spas that there are free mineral treatments on the trails!

    Wow, I've NEVER seen it so clear before! Thank you! I use that sidepath/sidewalk occasionally, and it was like riding through a litter box.

    This also changes my perception that "all VDOT road...

    I did this last year (my sister did the running, I did the cheering-biking-cheering part). From my experience, the whole area gets very clogged, and access is far more limited than usual. My sister...
