Can you post the details of the Nick's Organic Farms ride here? I don't have Facebook and it's requiring a login.

Thanks.

Another cyclist was hit this morning in the MVT crosswalk just south of Memorial Bridge. She had to pick up some pieces of her bicycle, but was able to ride off. I heard it, but didn't see it. After talking to her, I think it was a "one car stopped and the one next to it came through" scenario.

ike Ride to Save Nick's Organic Farm
Saturday, Nov. 5th - 10:30am
Dupont Circle to 8565 Horseshoe Lane, Potomac, MD
Less than 30 miles round trip, mostly flat and on trail

Nick's Organic Farm provides organic seed and feed to other farmers in the area. But the farm is under threat of being turned into Montgomery County's 502nd, 503rd, 504th and 505th soccer fields!

In order to raise awareness and build power to keep the farm going, we're organizing a bike ride to the farm. We'll take a small walking tour of the farm and why organic grasses and seeds are necessary. We'll also hear about the campaign to SAVE NICK's ORGANIC FARM and learn what we can all do to protect organic farmers everywhere!

The ride will start at Dupont Circle but we'll also stop at MacArthur Blvd and Brooks Lane as well as Bethesda Food Co-op to pick up more riders.

From Dupont Circle, the ride is an pretty easy, flat 28 miles round trip. There is only one brutal hill and no shame in walking it (I probably will!). In fact, it is that hill that makes Nick's farm so precious.

$5-$10 suggested donation. No one turned away! :)

@Ren - did the police come?

Anyway to fill out the cycletrack survey without a postcard?

Anyway to fill out the cycletrack survey without a postcard?

I don't think so. I was handed a postcard while riding PA Ave. The postcard had an identifier on it that one had to input on the survey's website.

@MB - No police. I wasn't really central to it. I just heard it from another crossing and waited to see if the cyclist was ok. This is the second time I have heard an accident in that crossing down by the river while in another crossing so if you have suggestions, I'm open to them.
