As I noted on Wash Cycle, they're generally good suggestions, but lacking in a few regards. For example, the GA Avenue from 29/Colesville down to 13th has all sorts of problems including bad traffic congestion, a huge grate underneath the Metro bridge and a series of places where vehicles routinely turnout without a light. I would never ride that stretch when alternatives on side streets strike me as far safer.

Similarly, I don't know if I would do Colesville Rd (before it's 29) from the circle up to GA Ave. In the morning or even afternoon, sure, but in the evening, no thanks. It routinely has problems with people running the light (coming out of Metro) onto 29, huge dips in the road right by GA Avenue that always accumulate ice, etc.

I do appreciate their seeking these routes then.
