    I hope he rode straight down the yellow middle line, just because he could. Or zig zagged back and forth, whistling.

    Assuming a coffee maker, you should be fine--most will get the water more than hot enough to kill stuff in the water. (Recommendations to boil water for 10 minutes or whatever are bs: 158 degrees for one minute will kill to 5 9s. Bringing the water to a full boil is a mechanism to ensure you hit the 158 degree point in the absence of a thermometer; leaving it at a boil for a minute adds a safety factor; boiling longer than that means you have access to cheap energy.)

    That's how I broke my finger on the old Indian River Inlet bridge on the Delaware shore. It was closed to car traffic until it could be torn down, so we cyclists were jauntily cruising down the middle of the highway when I hit some construction debris that, ironically, wouldn't have been there if it had been open to traffic.

    It seems like this is going to be a fair-weather connection rather than true transportation infrastructure. It was roped off today, and the last time there was any ice, it was also roped off. I donít think the Kennedy Center has any real intention of maintaining it in the winter, unless necessary for one of their events.

    This morning I discovered the path around the Netherlands Carillon near the Iwo Jima memorial is closed for construction, previously I had been able to ride through the work area. So this morning's Winter Bike to Work Day included a bit of Cyclocross through waterlogged muddy ground, adding a sandy gritty noise to my rim brakes usual squeal, I recommend riding back and around Iwo Jima
