    3 out of 5 drivers think that the addition of bike lanes means they no longer need to park near the curb.



    The paint seems to encourage right hooks. The dashed lines should open up much further...

    I used to commute from Penrose Square to Fort Belvoir. I used a variety of routes between Walter Reed and those gates of Narnia. If you stay west, your path hinges largely on where you choose to...

    In the very short term, yes. But wouldn't that huge # of drivers soon realize that they have alternatives to Walter Reed, such as Shirlington Road or even 395, thus canceling out any excessive...

    My overall experience with cycling has improved immensely ever since I started aggressively taking lanes whenever I ride streets like this. Yes it can still be rather uncomfortable at times....

    Thanks! Well-written and thorough summary of most of the points discussed here. The last day snuck up on me, so I plagiarized much of your letter. I shortened some parts, reorganized others, made a...

    Spandex brigade terrorfefe whines about security on National Mall. Playing with kiddie toys in the street. Grow up and buy a car. SAD!!!

    Is that right? If highway interchanges are the only access points, this trail will be even worse than I thought. I'll have to look more thoroughly at the design. I do know that the interchanges are...

    FWIW, the homes on Barton are technically Columbia Heights, not Nauck. However, if you use that term, I would guess that no one outside your civic association will know where you are referring to. It...

    I ride this part of the Pike often (whenever headed to 14th St or Memorial Bridge). I find it is not great but it is manageable. Admittedly my rides along this route are very rarely at rush hour.

    If you do choose to ride on streets in gusty conditions, it's advisable to be more assertive about taking the lane than you would in calmer conditions. When you make it obvious to drivers that they...

    It's rather indirect if you're heading to 14th St bridge, but have you considered riding M St west to Rock Creek trail? The connection is admittedly a bit awkward (I'd try either 26th or 28th to...

    Thanks. That would suggest that the 24% might be a simple fraction of people, i.e. 24% of people who self-identify as cyclists are women. If so, it would not include any weighting for time spent...

    I'm curious about this number. Did WABA share how they generated that?

    I figure the result would vary greatly depending on how it is defined. Is it normalized per person, per mile, per hour, etc.?...

    One nice thing about using actual weather rather than forecast is that there are a lot fewer variables to consider. For instance: Whose forecast? How far in advance?
