Sligo Creek Trail Condition: Crowded, with a Side of Chicken

View Larger Map

There were a lot of people out on the trail today. More than when it was this temperature in the autumn. Perhaps it's the rarity of 70-degree weather in February, or perhaps people were just itching to get outside after winter's seclusion.

I played Chicken with a car today. On the bike trail. (UPDATE: See the above google-rific thingy to know approx. where this was.)

What was it doing on the bike trail, you ask? Being stupid.

I refused to be intimidated (stupidly). I stayed on the bike trail, forcing it to drive onto the grass. Chalk up one for bikers everywhere.

(Look, I'm all for sharing the road, when it comes to roads. But sharing a bike trail with cars? Never.)

I'm having trouble picturing where on the Sligo Creek Trail a car could go. Was it near the playground?

I embedded Google Street View to demonstrate about where it was. It was between Riggs and 410. Is that the playground you mean?

Oh, I see, no I was thinking way farther north in Silver Spring.
