Kudos for the bike parking, even if it is the kind that most people don't prefer.

When I do a century ride out the W&OD and back, I always have lunch there -- great, old-fashioned, family place, complete with gruff waitresses. And they don't seem to mind grubby cyclists in weird clothes.

Is that's not an advertisement for the economic impact of trails, I don't know what is!!

I too always eat there when I do an end-to-end of the W&OD. So hungry by the time I show up, I eat like five hamburgers.

Now that's my kind of buffet.

Given the importance of the trail I'm mystified as to why there aren't any U shaped racks up and down the sidewalks.

Every time I see something like this in Loudoun County, I think about County Supervisor Suzanne Volpe's pathetic bashing of promoting cycling:
"Now I have to ask some of you business owners out there; do you think someone riding a bicycle on the W&OD Trail is going to help your business?"
Um, yeah, Suzanne.

Haven't been able to make it out all the way to Purceville and back (nor Leesburg for that matter), but the BBQ place at Ashburn Road (mile 27.5) now has a goodly collection of bike parking. And in one anecdotal observation does a goodly amount of business because of it.

But I agree that quality bike parking should be advocated for at every turn.
Personally, I don't think that any of the manufacturers should even offer grid racks.

Great Post! It's very nice to read this info from someone that actually knows what they are talking about.
