W&OD Trail Safety
As W&OD Trail users, many of us have experienced unsafe or overly aggressive cyclist behavior. Recently, the Club recieved email from an individual who was run over and seriously hurt. As an organization that promotes safe running, walking, and cycling behavor, Club President, Catherine Nelson, has communicated with responsible organizations including the Northern Virginia Park Authority, The Friends of the W&OD, and the Reston Bike Club on the matter. These groups are doing all they can with volunteer trail patrol, signage, and education. That said, it behooves each of us to be alert and safety conscious when using the trail.
RIP Cliff DeWitt
With sadness, we note the passing of Cliff DeWitt, a great friend and devoted Reston Runner. Cliff's contributions included serving on the Board as Director of Walking Programs, and volunteering as a massage therapist at many races, as well as crewing at JFK50. He worked Finish Line Services for many years, and participated in the Interval Training Program.
