- The DC Water and Sewer and Water Authority are repairing a section of the Capital Crescent Trail approximately 300 yards upstream from the end of Water Street / Washington Canoe Club. The emergency repairs are in response to a series of sink holes affecting the Capital Crescent Trail from a yet to be determined cause. Construction is on-going and takes place at night to minimize conflicts with commuters. Currently a temporary metal plate is in place and bicyclists are urged to use caution when traveling this section of the Capital Crescent Trail which will remain open to commuters and other recreational activities.
- Inetersting article about helmets in Bicycle Magazine. They use the unfortunate Insurance Institute for Highway Safety data about the % of cyclist fatalities that weren't wearing helmets, but I agree with the larger points: that helmets probably help in some situations, they don't in others and in still others they might do harm; we don't really know much about how much they do any of those things; and we still can make helmets better.
