    I've got Schwalbe Marathon Winters plus motivation and I'd like to commute from DC to Falls Church early tomorrow morning on the trails. Any chance they'll be cleared by then?

    I made a mistake here. I hadn't read anything about or ridden any part of trail in years and was under the impression that there was a bunch that was still dirt and not paved. Riding from Thiess Park...

  6. Any bike oriented physical therapists in the area?

    I've been having issues with my knees on and off for a few years now which I don't think are related to bike fit but related to knee damage from crashes, skate boarding, etc. Are there any physical...

    Russ does the type of gravel riding I'm into. Party pace, maybe a drink or three in a bag, and riding for the fun of riding.

    Still not many people working I guess!

    Started communing on the regular more often and noticed that the W&OD and Custis have been less crowded the past two weeks compared to May, June, and July....

    That is exactly what I am looking for. I start a little east of your start point so I don't have to worry about crossing 495 or 66. I typically ride up West. St. and cut through the neighborhoods to...
  12. Dunn Loring to Rosslyn avoiding the W&OD and Custis

    After seeing the amount of people on the W&OD yesterday evening I think it is best to avoid it, and the Custis, until the threat of Covid-19 has passed. My morning commute west is well before the sun...

    I'm eyeing a set of those, along with others (mainly the Rene Herse Pumpkin Ridge) for C&O trips but they are a tiny bit narrower than I'd like. I did an overnight last year on WTB Horizons and it...
