    From the Twitters: Four Mike Run Trail May have a one lane near the sewage plant periodically for two hundred yards during the next few weeks for a construction project.

    Custis was in good shape this morning, excepting minimal ice on the bridges.
    WO&D east to 4MR had several ice patches and the bridges were all very crusty.
    As someone else posted, 4MR to Rt 1 is pretty clear.
    MVT is mostly clear, but there are a few ice patches. Bridge are surprisingly clean. There is an ice patch at the turn onto 14th St bridge.
    MVT on both sides of the 14th St bridge is a nightmare of goose poop. Glad I have fenders!

    During the time of having one lane, this is the recommended bicycle gear:

    Yeah -- this morning as I passed there, some of the workers had cones up in the right-hand lane, doing work just off the trail right above the water-outlet.

    CCT was fine in DC. But Maryland decided it didn't need to pretreat, so the Maryland portion of the CCT was icy.

    Although I am a world renowned bike jouster I can encourage everyone to instead take it slow and be super kind when encountering other trail users here especially to walkers and slower bikers.

    On the Maryland portion of the CCT, it was mostly clear. There were a few short ice patches, but the only long one was just north of the tunnel (see photo). I have a) no sense of balance, and b) no risk tolerance. Even on hybrid tires, I walked my bike over every 2-foot patch of ice on the way down (as well as over the long one), and rode slowly when there was no ice so I'd see the ice well ahead of time. So it took me about an extra 20 minutes, but I made it. People who have either a sense of balance or risk tolerance, plus hybrid tires, probably wouldn't have to walk at all. Steve O would probably scoff at my timidity, and drevil would probably do it while doing one-handed handstands on his handlebars.

    The DC portion was completely clear.
