    And if you're just trying to avoid the Pike, you can exit through the gate off of Southgate Road -- it puts you parallel to the Pike and is a nice ride down to Joyce.

    Awesome. You have some mad skillz. Is it easy to play around more? I agree that the green pops more now, and the red pops more than I'd like. Could you make both darker? Maybe change the red to a...

    Wait. What? Doesn't an interested-but-concerned (IBC) cyclist need to know when there's a gap in their route. So if someone wants to bike from Penrose to Pentagon City, don't they need to know that...

    It was a lovely commute last night, though less lovely was the mass of runners just before the Intersection of Doom (TR side) congregation on the trail at the end of some race thing. And they left...

    Not if you want to "highlight[] the most stress-free routes to get around Arlington". Compare Columbia Pike to I-66. Your eye is immediately drawn to the Pike, and you don't even consider I-66...

    LOVE IT. That with black bike lane markings, and having the easy streets be the boldest lines and the not comfortable be the thinnest lines. And for all of the currently white streets, maybe outline...

    Another candidate for a "yellow" trail, the trail along 27 to the Memorial Bridge. (Contrary to Allen's email, I would keep 110 blue)

    Fair enough, but if the issue is width, then why shouldn't the ban be on ANY bike that's wider than X (which should be at least 36", because plenty of trailers are at least that wide)?

    I live in the Taylor assignment zone, and have taken the trail a fair number of times. I've always thought of it as the "Donaldson Run Trail" and have never seen a sign naming the trail.

    I would say 14th from Rhodes is a 2 arrow hill, personally.
    Key Blvd from Rhodes west deserves 2 arrows.
    Lorcom east from Spout Run deserves 2 arrows.
    The ZT/DR trail shouldn't have arrows until...

    A garbage truck was flying up Quincy the other day as I was biking along in the bike lane, laying on the horn. Cars were coming in the other direction, and there wouldn't have been room for me in...

    I just looked at the chart, but it seems that (1) the DC laws on motor-driven cycles conflict with the federal statutes, because they impose requirements on ebikes depending on how they're operated....

    Maybe you need to distinguish between hills that are doable but you should know they're there (Custis Trail out of Rosslyn) and hills that all but the strongest should avoid (Culpepper St, 41st)....

    It was a beautiful weekend, and I was lucky enough to involve biking in all my errands and "have to dos". Ending it all with a beautiful Kidical Mass ride last night was a cherry on top!

    So they put up a sign, telling drivers to obey the stop sign, had marked police cars out there, and drivers still did not obey the stop sign? *FOREHEAD TO KEYBOARD*
