    I don't see why not. I ride under 23rd on Virginia twice daily and have never had a problem. I believe there's been some discussion of riding on K under Washington Circle as well.

    If you don't want to spend a lot on these, I often see them at the Goodwill on Glebe and 50 in Arlington.

    Do you apply this logic to cargo ebikes? Most loaded cargo ebikes can't get above 15mph and the load is usually kids. So those should be forced on to streets? Or parents toting kids should just...

    I totally left The O-ster hanging today, when I realized a beat too late that he was the oncoming rider passing on the Trollheim, just as I reached up to scratch my nose.

    Sorry, Dude.

    Just an asterisk to your argument here: the risk of a vehicle on the trail are huge: you could have someone kill lots of people. BUT the likelihood of that scenario is very low, based on experience....

    I still think this would be better as a two-way cycle track on the north side, connecting to a contraflow bike lane on that single one-way block of 7th.

    But this seems like a good compromise.

    You're both right. The Custis is still the Custis in Rosslyn, and those 6 at-grade crossings are the worst part of the trail, and what makes us think twice about letting are kids ride their own...

    Someone posted in women and bikes not to long ago with a contraption that stored a road bike flat against the ceiling. Would that be an option?

    Or, would some sort of rail in the wall work - you...

    From reading the wapo article, I got the impression that the houses that back up to the sound wall don't want a trail in their backyard. Of course, you could​use design elements to minimize the...

    Looking at the maps (and I confess I didn't look at every one), I didn't see any connecting paths, even when the walls stopped. Infact, I saw a lot of places where vdot would add sound wall so that...

    Has anyone figured out the distances between the entrances to the trail? It seems like one would only be able to get on/off the trail at interchanges -- how far apart are those?

    Thanks

    Flexposts are still obstacles. They can take out a rider who doesn't see them or who misjudges them. They can also make it more difficult to navigate a turn on a cargo bike.

    Why not TRY...

    Oh, and I did commute through there twice in one week, but only in the afternoon. That said, there wasn't a guard house and the road doesn't go that close to any buildings, so I'd be pretty surprised...

    Eventually, there will be a trail from the tunnel under 395 that the Country Club uses up to Hoffman-Boston school, which will be very useful to you. CIP has this in (I think) 2022

    Of course,...

    In my experience, riding next to a railing and river is ENTIRELY different than next to a huge solid wall. Think about how hot and muggy this trail would be in the summer? How the wind would whip...

    Yes, very different. And yes, I agree paint on the sidewalk is an imperfect solution. But one would hope it could be a short term solution that they could do, like, next week.
