    I didn't mention that one because I liked the change from a busy car street to a pedestrian mall; however, the creep has continued and it's hardly that anymore since it's closed so often. I'm hoping...

    I passed by there around 6:20 to 6:30, must have been right after it happened. I slowed but didn't stop because there were several cyclists stopped already and one was on the phone calling 911....
  3. If folks can blame sunspots and missed putts on...

    If folks can blame sunspots and missed putts on Obama, I can blame this on Trump.

    Although really I do agree that this started about when all the fence jumpers started making headlines.

    I wonder how long before they just close it off for good. Many folks may not remember or did not live here then, but E Street south of the White House used to be a real-live no foolin' street, but it...

    Yesterday morning I saw the mirror broken on the ground. I didn't think to report it since I've never used it and did not realize it had utility for others.

    I was really hoping for something more nefarious, perhaps something justifying the Secret Service closing Lafayette Park more often. Rocket launchers and such.

    Yeah, the SS guys have pointed me to the sidewalk before, and I just turn around. If I wanted to walk I wouldn't have brought my bike.

    I was thinking just yesterday that it's closed more often now, and I as well thought of the closing of the entire Potomac river to canoeists and kayakers just because a president wants to play golf....

    Here are some Google bike directions.

    Note that the grey route they give is a route I would not normally take in its entirety during peak periods since I do not like to go through Washington...

    For 8 years I've bunny-hopped the bridge joint on the Pennsylvania Avenue bridge over Rock Creek, but today I noticed they've finally put a bit of asphalt there to smooth it out. In those 8 years,...

    +1. I left earlier to shower at work, and it would have been nice to see the count. With the departure of Tim Kelley, I fear top men are no longer on it.

    BTW, I only saw two cyclists on my...

    I have seen comments from some people on places like GreaterGreaterWashington and ArlNow where they have said they think the bell means "get out of my way."

    Lots of joggers out on the Custis ~6:15-6:30. Maybe they were out earlier to try to beat the heat.

    They want access to travel lanes. They were "bleeding badly from a [hit-and run]. I said no!

    This really sucks, and I'm sorry. Might not be enough to worry about, but you might think about contacting a lawyer, such as Bruce Deming (mentioned by Stevo), if your general feeling is that you...

    Mostly just time on the bike and time on the hills, which you're doing. If I had a particularly troublesome hill (like 41st St at Chain Bridge), I would just go do hill repeats on it. If you do half...

    I just started using Strava this winter, and I still have bike computers on all my bikes. Strava seems surprisingly good at getting the average speed right, compared to the bike computers. For...

    I love MTB SPDs. My totally skientific experiments (compared using the flip-flop platform/SPD pedals Crikey mentions) prove to me that I get a 1 to 2 mph boost on the flats, and a lower mph boost but...

    The day before yesterday when I went through here I took the lane b/c they were painting them. I shouted "thank you very much!" (b/c loud painting equipment going) to the workers as I went by.

    If you can safely. A sudden stop using both brakes (and therefore both hands) or an uneven surface or a steep downhill could make signalling an unsafe activity.

    It really is, but it's been there over a month and the rear tire is flat. It's got a serious chain lock backed up by a U lock, so I really wonder what the story is. I look at it every day longingly...

    Even if the plan isn't to build a poorly designed bike trail so that it can be converted to a car travel lane when no one uses it, that's what may happen. Drivers will be sitting in gridlock and will...
