    Default W&OD at Bluemont Park Ruts

    You know that particularly rough section of W&OD by Bluemont Park/Wilson Blvd?

    The NVRPA informs us that they hope to have it resurfaced by Christmas!

    That was a great spot for testing the rebound settings on suspension forks.

    I guess that explains the nice pink spray paint on the bumps at Bluemont.

    Any idea when the Custis section near Washington Blvd will get resurfaced? Or at least have the bumps ground down?

    Runners do that so the bumps are easier to see.

    Yeah that's the worst section for me. Super bumpy on little wheels.

    Can we spray paint the runners so that they are easier to see?
