    How large were the climbing walls in those stores? I saw a smaller one in the Pentagon Row REI. I never saw it operational. It was fairly small. I thought it was more of a demonstration device for...

    I wonder if water damage could be a problem for the vending machine. In the current location, the machine is semi-protected from rain. There is a lot of tree cover and the food stand blocks rain from...

    A climbing wall could be a good addition. It wouldn't have to take up too much horizontal space. That would draw a different group of action sports enthusiasts. Maybe a free running/parkour obstacle...

    I think it has to do with rcannon's puppy advocacy (Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!).

    At least the recent rain and snow has washed away most of the Canada goose droppings on the...

    Do they ever combine velodromes with other activity centers? Maybe a skateboard park, or a bike obstacle course/indoor "mountain bike" course? Some of these actually look pretty cool, like Ray's MTB...

    Yes, right-hooked applies to pedestrians too. I have many close calls while walking in crosswalks and aggressive drivers try to turn through the occupied crosswalk.

    I remember reading other statements in the past about the velodrome starting up six or nine months later, but nothing ever happened. So I would be skeptical about any opening dates until the...

    Definitely didn't seem like a prank, unless she was an Academy Award-winning actress. Obviously something was off, but she didn't seem as unhinged as other people I've seen on downtown sidewalks or...

    A couple years ago at East Potomac Park, I rode up to a woman who was walking on one side of the road while her dog was on the other side. The leash stretched across both lanes of the road....

    Did you post this on the Rosslyn safety improvement project pages? You probably have. If not, it can't hurt. It would be great to remove some of the dangerous grade crossings in Rosslyn and south of...

    Two beers an hour. Paid directly to me or to people I designate. This is actually part of Arlington County Code. Or not.

    I've been doing some Tabata-type workouts... swimming in the pool, but not on a bike. I plan to start adding some of those once I get out of my bike-laziness phase.

    That hasn't stopped people before. A few of the people at the Diamond Derby/Phoenix Derby races motor along the course (well, with only a human-powered motor). Do those races count in any standings?...

    I'll probably watch some of the races, but I doubt I'll register. I've barely ridden at all over the past 4.5 months, and I don't have a road bike. A triathlon bike wouldn't be appropriate for a...
