    I should correct myself. Many people have indeed found another use for that bike lane: car parking/idling.

    Do you actually use the bike lane on Clarendon Cannonball? I would not feel safe riding so close to parked cars at downhill speeds, especially given the potential for being trapped by a close pass if...

    Pass these drivers at the speedbumps on the downhill. Bonus points if you yell at them that they should stay off the roads if they can't keep up with the speed limit. :)

    Returning to the trail there seems pointless, since it's closed again a few blocks west. 21st is a pleasant enough route from Scott to Veitch.

    Bob, sorry to hear about your collision. I guess this is evidence that such an incident can unexpectedly befall even the most experienced and conscientious of riders! On the other hand I am certainly...

    As an aside: could DDOT legally create and enforce a height limit for parking alongside such a PBL? I don't believe I've ever seen "compact cars only" signs on public street parking, but it would...

    I would blame the street design more than the driver here. That car does not appear anywhere in your video until you emerge from behind the last SUV. If you hide the bike lane behind parked vehicles,...

    I was once pulled over by a police officer who turned on his flashers after driving up behind me while I was stopped to wait at a red light. I can only guess that my choice to use a bicycle instead...

    It's worth noting that we face all of these same problems riding any other DC-area PBL. Pedestrians stepping off the adjacent sidewalk without looking and loitering in the lanes. Drivers darting out...

    Attempting to pass two bicyclists with oncoming traffic? A malicious swipe at the head is obviously an unacceptable response, but the victim here is bound to hurt himself and/or others if he keeps...

    Although my pedestrian experience makes evident that quite a few honking drivers believe that to be the standard, ACPD's crosswalk enforcement stings indicate otherwise. Pedestrians at unsignalized...

    Thanks. I didn't realize there were bike lanes on Heritage now also. On the whole it looks more comfortable than Americana.

    The door-zone bike lanes north of Patriot, as shown on StreetView, do...

    For that route, you can avoid all the bad crossings along 50 by substituting Pershing to Fillmore instead.

    For one thing, it is important to keep in mind that this video displays only a subset of the data that would have been available to the AV sensors and its human driver. It is trivial to play with...

    Driving home late one night several months ago, I passed three CaBi riders who were in the far right lane of US-50 heading uphill from Rosslyn. I think I encountered them near the pedestrian bridge...

    How do the road closures impact pedestrians and bicyclists? I see a lot of information for drivers, but are there any restrictions on pedestrians crossing at all the other intersections? Will I at...

    You know what would be even more useful? A bicycle route that is direct/straight, continuous across the county, and actually serves all of the businesses in this corridor.

    I typically use the sidepaths on Key Bridge itself, but I ride the roadways in Virginia (Lynn / Ft Myer) and DC (M St) leading to the bridge. So I use the downstream sidewalk inbound and the upstream...

    Sorry to hear that. Hope you recover quickly.

    That's a tough spot, especially due to those grates. They won't eat even the skinniest of tires, but the traction can be unpredictable. I try to avoid...

    Not a hackathon, but you'll meet lots of likeminded folks at this meetup. I'm disappointed I can't attend this time.

    Have you considered taking the lane coming down that hill? That would make you much more visible to drivers, as well as give you more space to react to those who drive unpredictably.
