Condition of Capital Crescent Trail

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Condition of Capital Crescent Trail

Did anyone ride the Capital Crescent Trail today (December 6)? I'm planning on riding it tomorrow and am wondering whether the snow and ice from Saturday is gone.

I didn't, but I was out in Reston today where there was plenty of rutted ice on the ground. I live right off the trail - there will ALWAYS be ice around the entrance / exit to the Dale Carlia tunnel after a snow and it usually lasts for a while even if you have a sunny day because of the shade.

So if you're thinking mtb or cross bike, maybe; road bike, not for me.
