- Reportedly, the section of the Rock Creek Park Trail between P Street and Q Street that was recently poorly repaved will be fixed this week. Also in RCP, a cyclist suffered a "cardiac event" on Saturday morning. "A passerby started CPR, and the bicyclist was taken to a hospital and is now breathing on her own." Park Police are looking for the passerby so that they can tase him (I'm kidding - that's only if he drives a pedicab, otherwise they want to commend the person).
- The owners of the old Oakton Trolley station are donating a conservation easement to the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust. It includes "an easement along the former roadbed that would permit a trail to be built there in the future." Though I'm not sure it even stretches from Gray to Hibbard, so I wouldn't expect to see a trail any time soon.
- Lovely women on bikes are apparently a distraction for bus drivers.
- Phoenix Bikes got a $1500 grant for their summer program. "to provide an alternative to summer school by increasing summer opportunities for comprehensive exploration of cycling, community, and social entrepreneurism for at-risk-youth."
- 40 cyclists rode 11 miles through Rockville on Saturday in honor of Carl Henn, an environmental activist and bike enthusiast who died in July 2010 from internal injuries suffered after lightning struck him.
