    STOP! In the na-a-a-a-a-a-a-ame of LOVE!

    What would concern me about such features is that in the event of an accident, the cyclist can be assessed with some degree of contributory negligence, reducing any potential award from a damage...

    How is that trail next to Oregon Ave? From G-View it looks heavily forested, not at all suitable for two wheels except for MTBs. Oregon Avenue is not suitable either, as it has no shoulders and is...
  9. And the guy who was hit?

    Any update on the rider who was smacked in the head? Does anyone on the board know him or know how his recovery is going?

    It sounds like the person who was riding westbound (the crime victim) was attempting to pass under less than ideal circumstances. Without knowing more, such as the distance and speed of the E/B...

    15th Street Cycle Track

    Illegal. It would be illegal whether there was a bike lane or not, as there is only one lane of traffic, and it is illegal to pass on the right. Drivers do it all the time anyway.
