    May 2021 - Road and Trail Conditions

    Goslings! And guardian (often hissing) parent Canada Geese are out on the trails. Be careful.

    And this is starting out to be a season with a bumper crop of trail-side poison ivy - be wary when...

    Really? Given the numbers of dockless bikes and scooters scattered all around (and often on) the MVT and East and West Potomac Parks (and elsewhere on NPS land), I wonder what they do to stop it. ...

    Lubber Run Coomunity Center is likely where I will get a COVID shot. RackSpotter shows racks there, but that is dated well before they completely reconstructed the community center. Anyone know if...

    I can say that as of Tuesday morning, 3/2/21, it still wasn't open. However, it is close. They look to be finishing up the fencing on the rails to keep people from falling off the bridge. Not sure if...

    [cross posting the main contents]
    At 7:15 am today, there were two cars that had left the GW parkway between trollheim and boundary channel (it happened before then, but not likely too long before)....

    At about 7am the trails could be treacherous. The rime wasn’t too bad in terms of being slippery, but all the re-frozen melt was bad. If we freeze again tonight, these areas might be a problem:

    Did an Arlington loop this morning starting pre-dawn, so still below freezing, with 4MRT instead of W&OD for most of the way where they "parallel" each other. As the temperatures increase today, many...

    Since it looks like the snow may be finished for the time being, what are the trails like? (I see other asking similar questions)

    Apparently if you are persistent (days, hours on the phone, and multiple e-mails asking for escalation), someone there knows that it does not need to be a cell phone with texting capabilities. You...

    When you say "Puncture strip" do you mean something like rhinodillo strips? If so, then that is likely the problem. I had three flats in 2 days due to that. The strip was cracking longitudinally and...

    Thank you, Henry.
    However, this all assumes that one has a smart phone or any cell phone with texting ability. I spent a lot of time on the phone (landline) with them today (partially because their...
  17. CaBi key fob stopped working - why? And why so difficult to get new one?

    So, after taking my bike in for a brake repair, I planned to take a CaBi home. As always, I stick my fob into the slot to get a bike, but then I get a red light. Huh. Maybe something is wrong with...
