    I sort of had the opposite experience. My membership was supposed to renew in April 2020. COVID hit right before then, and I started working from home and stopped using CaBi. I didn't pay...

    The Mount Vernon trail will get you to Mount Vernon. From here take Mount Vernon Highway to Route 1. Mount Vernon Highway has a side path, but I'd recommend riding on the road and dealing with the...

    Fairfax County has some candidates. I've bike camped at Pohick Bay several times, and you'd have good bike-friendly routes from DC down there. Burke Lake is another option with decent routes. Bull...

    Minor clarification - As of a year or two ago, the PAC is now free, at least for active duty and government civilians. There are also several large bike racks right outside the PAC that are...

    Maybe not by themselves, but with education and enforcement, they will.

    If we don't have laws, then education and enforcement can't happen.

    Yes, motor vehicle laws are confusing, and probably...

    I used to bike commute from Springfield to the Pentagon. The bike paths in Arlington and Alexandria are pretty good. There are several popular trails and paths leading to the Pentagon.
