    You're preaching to the choir here. The vast majority of us bemoan the same thing, try to model polite trail behavior, even call out non-triggering reminders to offenders. I'd say few if any of...

    Guess it's been a few months since I last rode it. So, the plan is cross before 9 and then again after 3.

    Alternatively, you could head down to the towpath right there (if going North) and hop back on MacArthur at Old Angler's.

    Probably the worst part would be getting from Potomac to the city. River Road between the Village and Bradley Road lacks an adequate shoulder, is high speed and not bike friendly. If you have no...

    Yeah, I chalk this up to things people really shouldn't do, but do and moaning about it ain't gonna stop them. I do think it's really inconsiderate to run front flashers on trails, period.
