Just after midnight, Tysons-Pimmit area where route 7 crosses the Beltway.
Not much known yet.
Yikes, completely black, and says nothing about lights ------
I just recently started riding at night, 5am, and see a couple of people on bikes and then runners. The runners are usually quite visible because of reflective clothing but I don't see too many people on bikes with lights...It seems that having lights means that you are serious about riding because the couple I've seen with lights are those from my weekend group rides. I used to ride with no lights, but now if I feel I'll be caught at dusk/dawn/night I will bring my trusty P7.
Nah, no lights... the fault is the cyclists...
I see lots of ninjas in the morning there when I drive in. It's pretty hairy even in the daytime. Plus they're doing all that &)*)(*)( construction work for the new Lexus Lanes, and the bridge overpass is narrower than before. Not a great place to ride, but these folks have to do what they have to do to get to work.
Though this is likely a ninja situation we don't know for sure, especially since there's no mention of whether the cyclist had lights or reflectors. It wasn't reported by the news media so I wonder if the police even made note. This bothers me, which is why I commented on it:
Oh yeah, no rear wheel justifies a hit and run.
I ride an all black bike, often wear black rain pants, black rain jacket, black shoes, black shoe covers, black balaclava, black gloves.
I also wear a bright yellow helmet, an orange reflective vest, a bright cat eye rear light plus an extra blinkie, a front headlamp and handlebar mounted light.
My guess is a biased news report would say I was wearing all black- and actually be true- but not wholly accurate.
Would it be equally biased if the news report read- " a cyclist wearing a bright yellow helmet, an orange reflector vest with twice the legally required lighting..."?
From MoCo, Vienna is a good place to start. Bway to I-66 to Nutley to Maple/123 to the trail. Vienna Community Center is between mileposts 11 and 12 and usually has lots of parking.
