Hope he follows through.
    That have already been "fixed" three times since this section of the 4MRT was opened (2009?).

    Sad.
    No chance. Dairy Godmother is still open.

    But, Dairy Godmother is over a mile from the Wayne F. Anderson Bikeway!

    I'm up for a ride + Dairy Godmother.

    Impromptu completion of the Arlington Historical Bike Ride, erm, ride? We didn't get to do the last 4 stops (Eads St to Arlington Ridge), and I've got my notecards; interested?

    Personally, I would rather ride there on Commonwealth than on Mt Vernon, so the Wayne F. Anderson Bikeway is part of the preferred route for anyone coming from points west and north of Shirlington, and coming from Crystaly City and points north.

    Sounds good; meet at 6:45 PM at the Braddock Rd/Potomac Yard Trail bollard (near this: https://goo.gl/maps/omB3zgh2qkF2) for some history and ice cream! The view should be nice when we get to Prospect Hill (close to sunset), too.

    I'll text you if I get held up.

    For other bike folks who are interested: my cell is #571-201-7189 if you want to reach me.
