Thinking about going riding out at Pierce Mill this Saturday. Are they still closing the roads on the weekends?
The roads are always available to joggers and cyclists. From Pierce Mill to Silver Spring, 1/3 of the area are completely closed to car traffic. The rest are opened to traffic but you can only get to those areas from certain entry points and they are very very lightly used by cars. Once you are past downtown silver spring, the roads are accessible to cars but are also lightly used by cars. This is as it always has been for as long as I can remember.
Your greatest dangers are pot holes, joggers, pets, and other cyclists.
That's about what I figured...I just didn't know if they did something different during the winter. Thanks!
