    Video would be more useful convincing transportation planners that they've implemented ROW crosswalks across multi-lane roads inrcorrectly. There are no zig zag shoulder lines. In Europe the zig zags...

    Key, M/Pennsylvania, 15th, E Street

    These are not difficult urban routes. You will be acclimated after a dozen trips.

    M Street is much calmer and slower since the streateries have cropped up...

    I don't use 15th Street. I use Independence from Lincoln Memorial to where Maine splits off towards Waterfront. Then I take Maine and intersect with 15th as I continue through to the Waterfront. At...

    Glad they're having fun. I hope they fix this part of Maine Avenue soon though. This used to be my normal commute from Lincoln to Waterfront but its impassable since they put in the cycle track. They...

    I biked to work today. Seems like it's been two years. But that would be crazy.

    Got this message on my neighborhood list serve.
    "From Arlington County: The S. Park Drive entrance to the W&OD trail will be closed for two days to conduct survey work related to Sparrow Pond. The...

    Pre-pandemic my commute was roads and only a few lightly trafficked trails (Pershing, Ft. Cass, Memorial Bridge, Independence, Maine, M SW), or Wilson corridor. Once my 4th grader went back in person...

    Not only did my daily commute (75 miles a week) go to zero, not to be replaced by any other kind of biking, but my reading of this forum became monthly rather than daily. Total check out.

    I finally found the only e-bike I will tolerate on the bike trail, the 1881 Trouve Electric Tricycle: https://vimeo.com/538548283

    If you ever see 3 cars arrive at a 4-way stop and execute it correctly according to the law, let me know. I'll erect a silver Virginia history marker to commemorate the event.

    I haven't been around here in a while. Life, I guess. And teleworking. All my biking was commuting so I've been mostly out of the saddle.

    Good news is that my youngest (3rd grade) finally wanted...

    For that, and the zombie apocalypse, I'll go with my ditch bank blade.

    Reverse!

    Memorial Bridge flipped construction around from the south side to the north side. I was able to ride inbound on the south side of the bridge today. Smooth sailing. It was nice to cross...

    Rural or ubran roads? Rural roads will have speed limits over 45. Urban raods will have speed limits at 25. The latter is much more survivable. All the people I know who were hit from behind were hit...

    Chief Farr should ride a bike up that hill and let me pass him in my SUV. Bet I could change his mind.

    It would be too bad if that company received a bunch of calls for estimates and no one showed up at the appointments.

    Mass disruption protest + excellent PR - flex commuters(stayed home + rode metro + rode bikes) = easiest commute ever.

    Had to ride Florida Avenue from Bladensburg Rd NE to 9th Street NW yesterday and saw the bike lane they installed. What a trash-filled, debris filled, POS. It's about 30 inches wide and unridable....

    I drove to work yesterday. I never do that. It was awful, terrible, painful, slow and expensive. $25 to park for the day? At that rate I've saved $100,000 over the last 20 years (I know, I know,...

    Sorry for getting lazy with the terminology. Technically it's an "accessible route" not a ramp (same source, 206.2) and the maximum slope for accessible routes is 1:20 (403.1, 403.3). When you get...

    Two pedestrian bridges over Lubber Run behind the Lubber Run Amphitheater were washed away. That's just off of Four Mile Run so probably count in that total.

    Lubber Run north of 50 is a mess....
