    The project is completed and the trail is open - though the block of Commonwealth leading to the trail is in as bad a condition as ever.

    So far it has all been open when I've been riding it the past three weeks. Besides, I didn't intend to on that side of the run, must have been "software" error.

    Managed 10 pit stops (11 if you include the NPS at Roosevelt Island). Falls Church, all Arlington, Georgetown, Nat Geo and Freedom Plaza. Saw several forum members on my rounds.

    Do we have a records?? 10 is impressive. I have no idea, until I start to count.... Vienna, (Conte/WFC), Little Falls, EFC, Ballston, Columbia Pike, Crystal City, Freedom Plaza. So, seven (1) official stops. I passed Farragut square, but it was already done, and I figured NatGeo probably was too.

    Best coffee: Vienna
    Best music: Ballston
    Best cheer: Little Falls (yeah, that was me with the drama entry)
    Best mechanic: Conte (ok, ok. i only needed 1 mechanic)
    Best swag: Crystal City: bike jersey(!!)
    Honorable mention swag: EFC: u-lock
    Best food: Conte: cronut (<--new discovery!!)
    Best shirt collection: Steve O (Ballston)
    Location most needing bike infrastructure: Col.Pike
    Most grateful for: every volunteer who made this possible!
    Best beer: ?? let's find out!
