    Found plenty of opportunities to give back - many curb cuts were blocked with snow. At the intersection of Wilkes and Henry in Alexandria, there are curb cuts for people who walk and bike to access the Wilkes Street Bikeway. Of course they were blocked, so I got to work to create pathways for the users of this route.

    Biked to volunteer at the Rockville Bike Hub, a local non-profit community bike shop that teaches you how to maintain and fix your own bike. Or you can help fix donated used bikes to return into the community.

    There are still a lot of blocked curbcuts and icy spots on supposedly cleared trails, so I brought a collapsible shovel on my ride today.

    Along the Potomac Yard Trail, near the playground:

    I got there late, but enjoyed my time shoveling. I hadn't read the rules carefully and forgot to take a picture of my own bike, so it won't count toward the prize, but enjoyed the chance to give back, and especially to hack at ice 😉🙂

    I also joined today’s Friends of the Mount Vernon Trail event to help clear snow, ice, and fallen trees from the path. I forgot to include my bike in pictures but maybe Judd will forgive?
