    I do not think anyone should be going 28mph on an MUT near pedestrians. Period. Do I need to put that at the end of every post? I also think people...

    True, though I'll note that the 3 bad examples have been riding for at least the last 3 years. A lot of "newbies" are riding ebikes, and somehow,...

    But it's not about you (or me, for that matter). It's about all those people who aren't going to ride those streets at 15mph but would at 25mph. The...

    Ah. Where are you getting an 18mph speed limit on the Custis? I'm not saying that there shouldn't be one, but there isn't one currently, and that is...
