    I'm not pictured either but was in that corner in a black puffy jacket. Maybe you spotted me?

    I'm glad I showed up! And I think I've been roped in to join a subcommittee. Still glad I showed up!

    Has anyone taken an ebike on a MARC train? A Reddit user is reporting that MARC has started barring his/her ebike after a year of allowing it on, apparently citing the rule against motorized vehicles...

    Ebikes can be a major game changer with getting people out of cars and onto trails whether for commuting or recreational travel. I personally never considered commuting on a conventional bike due to...

    I am one of those of who you speak, commuting on an e-bike primarily using the region's trails as a fit young person. I'm curious whether you think that e-bikes should be allowed on trails and...

    Midday ride from DC -> Alexandria was uneventful. The 14th St. bridge is plowed (I rode behind the machine and gave the guy a thumbs up at MVT), and MVT had nice squeaky snow ~1" deep. Potomac Yard...

    Squeaky snow all the way in from Alexandria today. Potomac Yard Trail -> MVT was good to go. The only janky experience I had was turning too sharply onto a plowed road.

    Took my bike in today from Eisenhower to L'Enfant in an effort to allow the MVT to thaw. No major issues!

    That's an electric motorcycle - it doesn't even have pedals. Unless Harley Davidson has come full circle and is making bicycles again, 100 years later.

    Has anyone taken their bike on the metro since this new rule went into effect? I'm trying to work up the nerve to do it myself.

    I've been thinking of putting a "Drafting Welcome" sign on my back on my daily e-bike commute. Would that go over well do you think?

    Perhaps a better inquiry is whether the rider operates it safely on the trail? :)

    You're right - I thought Google told me 1000W = 1 hp, but that's not true either. Thanks for the correction.

    The counterpoint to this is the homebrew e-bikes that sometimes are encountered on MUPs around here. I've seen a couple that must have been doing 30mph. I commute every day on an e-bike and consider...

    I've found that most people assume that an e-bike performs like a motorized bicycle with an internal combustion engine (moped). It seems clear that the legacy prohibition of "motorized" bikes on the...

    I think you're on to something with the critical mass theory. I would not otherwise own a bike if not for my commuting needs, and for those purposes the ebike is ideal. I enjoy riding and even when...
