Another bike article in the Post

Today's Post contains another article on bicycling, An Easier Way Up: Hills Are Good for the Heart, but Many Hate The Effort. Here Are Some Tips to Ease the Pain. We especially liked the comments about avoiding the crowded trails at this time of year. With the new Fairfax Bike Map, “road” cyclists can begin to explore the many bikeable roads in the county.

“You could shrug off the challenge and stick to the flats -- Washington's bike trails, connecting outposts as diverse as Purcellville, Mount Vernon and downtown Bethesda, are as free of elevation changes as they are of motorized traffic. But at this time of year, when cyclists, skaters, dog-walkers and others mix it up on these narrow stretches of pavement, you might be sorry. And you'd be missing out -- on health benefits as well as thrills.”
