Newsletter: 17-year freewheels

Happy Earth, Wind & Fire month,

I am sitting in my living room with the door open enjoying the blue sky and cool breeze. The cicadas sound like freehubs and they’re mostly drowning out the traffic noise. Presented with the prospect of taking the afternoon off to ride my bike, my brain is unable to focus on anything else. So let’s keep this brief so we can all go pedaling before the heat returns on Sunday. 

Things to do this week:

A fun route idea for the weekend

Let some air out of your tires, stuff some dry socks in your saddlebag and ride Fairfax County’s awesome Cross County Trail. The north end is a little more accessible from other trails and Metro—you can pick it up from the W&OD trail, the Vienna Metro, and the Reston Metro.  

Have a great weekend.
