Scott, the route looks great. I'd like to make one suggestion re; Peirce Mill stop.

We usually end up parked along the right curb with our cars heading towards Tilden St (red line). Many of us turn left off Tilden onto Shoemaker St and then we have 25 cobras trying to make a U-turn in the area of the green box. It is a lot easier to go past Shoemaker and then turn left onto Spring of Freedom St and drive down to the curb parking.
Thanks Craig. Also note we can park in the Park Grove Lot;

AND WE DISCOVERED DUE TO THE PARTIAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN, THE RESTROOMS AT PARK GROVE ARE CLOSED. IF THIS IS AN ISSUE FOR ANYONE, WE SUGGEST THAT YOU SCHEDULE A BATHROOM STOP AT THE ZOO ON THE RETURN ROUTE. THE ZOO WILL BE OPEN, SO THE PARKING LOT MAY BE CROWDED.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll bring a couple of empty Gatorade bottles.

And I understand they're banning right turn on red at many intersections. I believe that's not the default, however. I think they're going to put signs at the no-turn-on-red intersections. And 5-0 will be gleefully writing paying paper, I'm sure.

And bike lane cameras. Not for revenue. Safest place in the world.
74 sq miles, and only 160 homicides so far this year !!

Good thing we'll be eating in VA. I hear that dc is installing plastic straw cameras.
