    I've seen MPD bike cops pulling over people for riding on the sidewalk on 19th street. From a safety point of view, I think targeting texters/distracted, running red lights and/or not using lights...

    From the looks, I misnamed this thread -- it's not really southern Maryland as much as Southern Prince George's county. Scouting the route today.

    Nah, too far to ride to get there. For normal people, I was thinking we could make a party of it and people could try for any elevation they wanted, ranging from the Statue of Liberty to Kilimanjaro.

    Not Everest, but maybe Pikes Peak?

    So I did a test this evening on Research Road hill behind my house. It's almost exactly 100 feet elevation gain from the base to the gate at the top (gate...

    The poster-sized maps don't translate well to PDF, at least in this rendering, but the plans I can assure are far from horrible. I'm sure more easy-to-read maps are available for people interested...

    Plans and ideas for connecting Cheverly to the Anacostia River trails were presented in a public meeting by MNCPPC and Toole Design last week: Here's the full slide show:...

    Fenders can be helpful if you run over dog poo. Not that that's ever happened to me.

    Speed cameras have helped enormously to prevent speeding on parts of Cherrywood Lane and Crescent Road in Greenbelt (the main bike route). Much safer now for cycling when cars and buses are going 30...

    The larger issue here is that too much road space and priority is given to people who want to strap 4000lbs of metal and glass on their back and burn a bunch of fumes in order to move around.

    This coming Sunday, Sept 20, we're going to do a scout run of the crop hop ride. Planning to carpool from Proteus at 9am down to the start and ride the metric century, just to get a feel for the...

    The AL looks like the same geometry as the steel Rove but I haven't ridden it; the Big Rove appears to be more mountain bikey, although I found that it handled great on the roads too. Sort of like a...

    I have 17 miles each way, which is about 1 hour 15 min. It's a little too long, probably. I've been riding the fast bike more, and not doing long rides on the weekend, to keep the legs fresh(er). ...

    They have coffee actually -- good coffee. But they're not smart enough to sell it -- it's free! But there is a tip jar, which goes a long way toward feeding the mechanics actually, so it's not...

    Restarting an old thread for the new bikey update.

    I rode this beast all over Washington (state) last month. My new vote for the ultimate commuter bike. Handled great on the road, all around fun...

    One final tip. Newton street NE is a pretty steep hill inbound (it's only two blocks, but they go up). Savvy commuters (or is that lazy like me?) often climb up Otis instead, and jog over to Newton...

    The wide sidewalk on the east side of Louisiana is fine for slower and courteous riding. That's marked on the GoDC masterplan as a future cycletrack, so I know they realize the need. Just go left...

    Hi 83b, I like that route pretty well, although as jrenaut suggests, it can be a little hairy around Union Station and Louisiana Ave.

    I prefer the "flat" route through NE, which is illustrated...
