Opponents of running Purple Line light rail trains along a popular bike and walking trail between downtown Bethesda and Silver Spring are planning a 5K race and rally Saturday to show support for the trail.
The Capital Weather Gang says travelers should watch out for showers late Saturday and into Sunday. The big construction bottlenecks over the weekend are at Chain Bridge and on the Beltway's inner loop west of the Wilson Bridge. But there are plenty of other traffic and transit issues in this weekend's alerts.

Metro plans to detour 16 bus routes Sunday to get around several events: the George Washington University commencement, the Capitol Hill Classic Fun Run and the Taste of Arlington.
The resurrection of the "Barnes Dance" method of pedestrian crossing at 7th and H streets NW after a decades-long hiatus was a throwback, but now a group of people is mobilizing on Facebook to wind back the wacky time machine even further: They're planning to turn the Barnes Dance into a barn dance tonight at 7p.m.--replete with cowboy boots, "overalls, plaid and straw hats."
The local travel forecast looks great, according to the Capital Weather Gang, and there will be plenty of people on the roads Sunday for Mother's Day. You don't want to keep Mom waiting, so watch out for a variety of events that may slow your progress, and of course, there's the usual weekend work on Metrorail.
