Hi from Reston, VA

I joined a few years ago but have just gotten around to posting. I used to commute for a few years in the Reston, Vienna, Tysons, McLean, and Washington, DC area before retiring. I rode tubulars at the time and was pretty good at changing them when I had the occasional flat (and then repairing them when I had a few to work on). At present, I have two bikes with tubulars, a SOMA SAGA touring bike, and a modified Dahon folding bike. I ride on the Trail Patrol on the W&OD (Washington and Old Dominion) multi-use trail, with the objective of helping trail users who might be in need.

I've spent some time in Reston for work. While crowded at times, the w&od is one of the only trails where the users universally know what the ding ding of the bell means.

Welcome. I used to live in Reston and moved to Herndon. I also commuted 2 times a week to DC (58 miles round trip). I especially enjoyed rides out to Purcerville before everything west got built up.

wvucyclist, I’m also from WV (north central part).

Welcome, I'm in Herndon and am OFTEN riding through Reston on the W&OD.

Funny that as I read " the w&od is one of the only trails where the users universally know what the ding ding of the bell means ", I'm immediately drawn to a moment yesterday when I was casually drifting around the Reston trail system and said "on your left" as I intended to pass on the left, and the gentleman (buried in his phone) who was FAR to the right already, slowed down and slowly MOVED to the LEFT!!!! :-) Oh bother. Anyway, a hearty welcome to candango We really should do a group (casual) ride for bikeforums users in Reston/Herndon area.
