    I assume 311 is a bit like those request-a-walk-signal buttons downtown and is really just to placate people not in cars. I'm still ducking that sign every day as I ride by.

    Noted on Monday, May 7th that this sign has now been raised. Was out Friday, but it had not been done on Thursday. So March 26th to May 4th at best. Not too bad considering that it posed no danger to cars.

    I'm a bit relieved since I noticed last week that I was getting used to it and almost forgot to duck or move left. I'm surprised more people haven't hit it, but maybe most people don't ride 58s.

    From Vienna to Reston the trail is a scene out of Little Shop of Horrors. A mowing pass is needed to reclaim that half of the lane lost to the thorny foliage.

    So I got three (3!) emails from DC 311 saying they were closing this ticket and they couldn't find the problem. It's only been 15 months, and one of us "fixed" the sign already, so no doubt they couldn't find the problem. But DC 311 is on it!
