Wilson Bridge trail encourages bike commuting between Pr. George’s and Northern VirginiaThe Post
Years ago, not long after it opened, I raved about the Woodrow Wilson Bridge trail – The Wilson Bridge trail is wonderful. At the time, I thought it was mostly a “great to have” recreational facility, but it is becoming a viable commuter option as well, despite not being in a particularly dense employment area on either side of the river.

Prince George’s officials said use of the 3.5-mile Wilson Bridge trail has increased dramatically since it opened in 2009. In March, the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission recorded 26,827 crossings, up from 13,998 in March 2012. (In both cases, a trip back and forth was counted as two crossings.)

Biking across that sounds a lot better than my commute.

I’ll have several more bicycling posts over the next week or so.
