Safety Enhancements on Trail

Monday, March 19, 2007. The trail is clear all the way
from Leesburg to Clarks Gap. There's some snow
at the stone bridge at Clark's Gap but very passable.

I noticed these trail markings at all the Leesburg intersections along with rumble strips. This one is just before Catoctin Circle near the high school.

The work crews use hot torches to seal the lettering and I needed to walk my bike around their work at one point.

All in all a great ride with a stiff tailwind westward (uphill when I needed it) with gravity negating the headwind (almost) on the way back.
