GM is all for separating out cars from bikers whenever possible and appropriate, but were there that many idiot drivers going down the Capital Crescent thinking they’d reach the Beltway?
Or does this really have something to do with the Washington Canoe Club, whose members drive right up to the club (beyond where this fence now stands) to park? The National Park Service tried to evict the club some years back, but it appears that it didn’t take (although GM can’t find any articles explaining that).
Either way, stay off the Capital Crescent Trail drivers. Yes, it’s a nice way to travel but you’ve got to do it by bike.
