TriathlonTrialLawyer Doug Landau often rides and runs on the W&OD Trail. When there is danger on or near the trail, lawyer Landau tries to warn fellow athletes so as to avoid accidents, injuries and other mishaps. The Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (“NVRPA”) plans on having a 2 mile detour starting December 1st. The bike safety and bicycle commuter advocate notes the 2 mile detour will be between mile markers 36 and 38 just West of Leesburg in Loudoun County.

This detour will enable Dominion Virginia Power to install a new transmission line. The detour will be paved. The detour will also allow for runners, bikers, skaters, walkers, roller bladers and others on the trail to continue to do so safely. However, be forewarned, the detour will not be as flat as the grade you may be used to on the rest of the 45 mile trail. Much of the detour will cross private property, according to NVRPA officials.
