Happy Good Friday. I wish the media didn't call a motorcycle a bike. Now my searches are filled with stories about Arkansas Couch Petrino and Jessica Dorrell.
- "The gates at both ends of the Washington Navy Yard (WNY) Riverwalk will remain open for public access from dusk to dawn and will be open as a thoroughfare to facilitate access to the WNY and neighboring areas after sunset. There will be no loitering allowed between the hours of sunset and sunrise and the Riverwalk may close, without notice, to support WNY operations." That is a pretty rapid change from not so long ago when it was only open during working hours. Nice job Navy.
- A reader writes in "A number of riders saw a snapper turtle at the edge of the CCT where it parallels the C&O Canal last week. The turtle was variously described as “very big” and “prehistoric” and appeared to weigh as much as 30-35 pounds. Since the males are territorial, there is a good chance of more sightings at this location. Riders and joggers should be advised not to approach the turtle, as they are highly aggressive during the spring mating season and can easily cause a severe injury to a person’s limbs." So, pretty much the same as GWU students...
- So that's what happened to all the other ghost bikes Legba Carrefour promised us.
- The First Ever National Bike to School Day is scheduled for May 9th. I understand the idea of having in bike month, but it might be better to do it earlier in spring, so that kids can finish out the year on bike. But, I'm not complaining.
