    And the most important point: if we want to "Ride The Drive" again without motorized traffic, we need to provide a lot of positive feedback to NPS.

    Did you have a great time riding yesterday...

    Phenomenal day!

    I parked at Skyline HS shortly after 8am, rode to 211 and back, returning just after 5pm. Along the way, I was able to enjoy the scenery in solitude at many points on a uniquely...

    I'm in; looking forward to this! I'll be on a road bike, 23mm slicks with rim brakes, so will take all the descents very carefully if the road hasn't dried out by then :D



    FWIW, chances of rain...

    Glad to hear that the bikeshare tank design helped you avoid a fall this evening. And thank you for filing a report to help build a case for a better cycling experience on the Pike. I don't use that...

    You would think that signage at key route decision points such as these might even be standard protocol if this were, I don't know, an important transportation corridor or something... Maybe even...

    Do you feel any differently about George Mason southbound vs. northbound? I've ridden on that stretch several times southbound near the end of a workout loop, and I never felt it was especially...

    +1

    This decision sabotages an otherwise useful transportation facility so that ten people can have a slightly shorter walk from their homes to their cars. Obviously the County Board (and the...

    We were taught this same sequence in NoVa, but only for a left turn. For a right turn, it was just "look left". Once, as a brand-new licensed driver, I made a right turn onto an exurban arterial with...

    I don't think it's any secret that there is a lot of negligent bicyclist behavior around here. Is there any traffic law, besides speeding, for which bicyclists have higher compliance than motorists?...

    Glad to hear you are ok. Blowing through a no-turn-on-red like this is extremely reckless and dangerous.

    You should be aware that this is an all-too-common behavior for drivers with a suburban...

    Thanks for this link. But I encounter threats from distracted drivers more frequently than aggressive ones. I think they should get warning letters too. Since I don't see anywhere else to report...

    That said, since you're going to Foxcroft Heights and not Penrose, I would take the eastern route instead. With the western route, you'd be heading in the same direction as Columbia Pike rush-hour...

    I agree on avoiding the trail along the westbound side of 50. Since you are going to come as far west as Fillmore anyway, I'd instead recommend climbing either

    a) Wilson Blvd (possible route:...

    +1. Is there a map that defines the capitol viewshed boundaries through this park? If that can be obtained and shared here, this community could reach a consensus suggestion pretty quickly.

    Any chance she can find a sponsor for a Fort Myer AIE pass? Given the endpoint, that commute is just begging for an easy trip from Wright Gate to Henderson Hall Gate.

    Info (not sure if it's up to...

    Thanks for the map. The elevation data are no doubt a nod to the current administration.

    Yesterday, a covered sign faced trail users just after they reach the north end of the TR parking lot coming from Rosslyn via the switchback overpass over GWMP. The sign is not yet exposed, but it...

    Glad to hear you emerged unscathed from that minefield.

    I assume you're talking about 6th St S between Courthouse and Walter Reed? I hate riding on streets designed like that one. The bike lanes...

    How about the SW corner of the parking lot? Still close enough for easy visibility and trail access without being so close as to be hazardous. Also a more pleasant experience for CaBi employees to...

    Sorry, I haven't been through Key recently. I'm curious about that speedbump though. Is it new (as of repaving last year)? It's poorly marked and very tough to see at night. I failed to notice it...
