    I have NOT tried to ride it, but driving by late yesterday, there appeared to be police tape cordoning off the tidal basis and they were allowing pedestrians and cyclists on and off the 14th St...

    You could try going up to L'Enfant from the Wharf at 9th St SW, cross the Francis Case Memorial pedestrian bridge into East Potomac, then take Ohio over to East Basin drive. I imagine that would...

    Perhaps there is a definition issue. To me, 1 bike length back is still drafting, 2 bike lengths, not so much, but I do know some folks who consider following for any significant length of time at...

    Wasn't me as I haven't ridden yet today and I almost always call my pass, but there are times that I very slowly catch a rider in front of me and just don't have enough of a speed advantage to...

    If you can handle the truth, that is unless of course a "Code Red" is implemented.

    I like the idea of the current point system in that is seems to encourage riding daily (it has for me), but doesn't cap points for those who ride long miles. I will say I rode more miles last year,...

    I can't make the event, but greatly appreciate the effort!
  8. Okay, you guys convinced me and you win. The...

    Okay, you guys convinced me and you win. The nexus between a hidden landmine (or bear trap) that is designed to kill by kinetically exploding and a clearly visible static bollard is very obvious.

  9. "something similar" is a specific conclusion? The...

    "something similar" is a specific conclusion? The bollard in and of itself, nor its placement alone could possibly cause a death. Unless the bollard was somehow launched at the rider, he had to be...
  10. Now you've gone to completely different issues. ...

    Now you've gone to completely different issues. I could argue the gun did not kill the person in your scenario, as a gun can't do anything by itself (much like a bollard), but that's a totally...
  11. Against my better judgement, I'll continue the...

    Against my better judgement, I'll continue the conversation. To say that the bollard caused your death in that case would be inaccurate IMO. The bollard contributed to your death, certainly, but I...

    We are obviously at odds over the statement and interpretation of events here, so I'll make this my last attempt to get my pure point across. One last time, ALL I am advocating for is stating known...

    Incorrect. I am advocating for NO interpretation, just a statement of fact. I.E. Cyclist dies after hitting a bollard. Or if you wish to take it to another level, Cyclist dies after hitting poorly...
  16. You miss the point of my message. I did not...

    You miss the point of my message. I did not advocate for lesser safety standards when it comes to bicycle facilities. I advocated for factual statements when a bicyclist crashes.

    I have no qualms with that headline, assuming is was a City officials in James County who was at fault. I am not advocating that bollards should be there or that riders should be less protected than...
  18. Tragic ending no doubt and likely bad placement...

    Tragic ending no doubt and likely bad placement for a bollard, but that headline is akin to "cyclist crashes into car" when a car pulls out in front of the cyclist. The bollard placement did not...

    I have to be near Waterfront SW by 7:30 to get ready and at work on time. Don't worry about me for the team commute, but I hope you enjoy it!

    Does everyone but me have a subscription to WAPO? Seems like I get a popup blocking the article every time I click one of these links.
