    Sorry for the late posting. We lost our internet for a couple of days and then work was busy.

    On MLK Jr Day I joined the Proteus Velo Club (College Park, MD) in shoveling some of the local and not-as-local trails after that last storm. We started at Proteus. First we went south on the Trolley Trail, which is a backbone for bicycle commuters and users of all types in our community. We cleared the snow and slush that the plows had left in 7 intersections along this trail. Then we headed further south to Bladensburg and the ART. I personally cleared the straight wooden bridge that you see in the photos here, and the three of us then cleared the very long, twisting, wooden boardwalk so that there was at least one good-sized lane along the entire length.

    Afterwards, I ate some dumplings and remembered the awesome Chinese New Year ride that Komorebi organized a couple of years ago.

    I joined the Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail today to pick up trash and clear invasive vegetation near the 14th street bridge

    20 Mega Bonus Points have been awarded for snow clearing. Excellent job with pandering by clearing an access point to the Mount Vernon Trail.

    5 Points for volunteering for Arlingtonians Helping Afghans! 5 Bonus Points to encourage you to continue working on your selfie skills. Reminds me of LordoftheMark's early selfie work.

    I'm counting it! 50 Points for donating blood. 5 bonus points if you wear the beanie to the next FoMVT event.
