'For a hundred yards, the Mount Vernon Trail coincides with Northdown Road which has been in wretched condition for many years. It is finally getting renovated."

Do you dismount and walk cars too?

I biked that part of the trail this weekend. Very few bicyclists followed that suggestion. If you don't mind a little gravel on your tires, there is no need to do so.

I biked there last Friday and got yelled at by one of the workers for not dismounting.

I biked there today. I didn't dismount and I didn't see any workers to ask about it.
The new surface is nice, but it was especially sticky today and sounded strange.

I always laugh at those signs that tell you to dismount. I feel like it assumes that a cyclist is like a 5yo child. I think most cyclists feel that they are more agile and feel one with the bike when they're riding it Once I dismount, I feel like I'm dragging a cruise ship around and it's like I have to worry about myself AND my bike for clearance, etc. Maybe the signs should be to warn cyclists to SLOW to a snail's pace and watch their traction. Must have been one hell of a lawsuit or someone scared of getting a lawsuit. Obviously not a confident biker!
I always laugh when I see those signs at intersections. I actually do the opposite--I stand up on my bike. it's been VERY useful for the most part in getting drivers to slow down and notice me, except in those super car-centric areas of PG county. Argh.
