    If you are going from the 14th Street bridge to Shirlington and beyond, I recommend you take the Eads Street detour, turn right on 23rd and left on Army Navy. You can return to the 4MRT off Four...

    Bah... You just need a nice new friction bar end (or better yet downtube) shifter.:rolleyes:

    I believe the correct term should be and/or although, using Boolean rules, the OR operator is by definition inclusive. I did not see the phrase "beer XOR burger."

    I'm going to call BS on this. If I am a driver who stop at a red light, I know perfectly well when I could proceed where it would be perfectly safe. The reason that cyclists do it is that it is...

    I think what is happening here is that drivers only see the yellow line and think they are on a two lane road and center themselves in the "travel lane" completely oblivious to the white line...

    While the "almost all" is certainly hyperbolic, I find the number to be quite substantial, particularly in downtown and between Ballston and Rosslyn. I would not be surprised if it were less in your...

    Cars turning right should turn from the bike lane, not across the bike lane. Turns across the bike lane set up right hook collisions. The dash lines indicating that right-turning cars should take...

    Well, if you put the rear wheel on the Vilano Edge the "wrong" way, you got a fixie.:rolleyes:

    My fixie has brakes too. But, I'm a poseur due to lack of facial hair.

    Lee Highway... I think it would suck. I would look at going north of 66. There is some bike trail on the north side of the Vienna Metro that ends up at Tapawingo. Follow that to the W&OD. Turn...

    The reason I take the lot is that the 90 degree turns suck. This area doesn't seem to have any more pedestrians than the rest of the MVT, so I don't see those conflicts as particularly problematic. ...

    The Bridge to Nowhere is the pedestrian bridge over 66 at the top of the hill-like structure in the Moguls.

    The Twin Sisters are the hill climbing to the bridge over the off-ramp at Glebe Road.
