McHugh was riding on a Northern Virginia bike trail when he swerved to avoid a group of pedestrians and fell. The fracture didn’t require surgery but he needed in-patient rehabilitation.

McHugh, a longtime bicycling enthusiast, was discharged Tuesday, a spokesman said, and returned to the office Wednesday. We understand that he had been staying on top of things, teleworking from the hospital.
