    These have existed for a while, and haven't really taken off.

    Glad it wasn't worse. So so sorry this happened. This is my husband's route to and from preschool (half the time with our 3.5 year old) Terrifying.

    Veitch St, along the new pbl, is residential permit parking.

    I'm also disappointed the project does not involve mode separation on the Custis.

    I don't think it's for that project. They seem to be working on something at the apartment buildings when I went through this am.

  7. December 2018 ABAC meeting: 7:00pm Call to Order; Introductions Gillian 7:10pm VA-237

    Hi all,

    Exciting meeting tonight, where we will decide on BAC priorities through 2020, along with some other fun. Note we have draft text of our input on the POPS planned, as discussed in...

    I see why the bridge over 29 was the priority, but I agree that a bridge over Sycamore and the on ramp should be the next priority. And it can still be built with tolling funds (which reminds me to...

    To your first point, from my relatively long, but admittedly anecdotal experience I think that ebikers are, on average, more polite bikers than non-ebikers. They're more willing to slow behind a...

    Just to pile on: I've never seen GPS be precise enough to distinguish between, e.g. the Custis Trail in Rosslyn and Lee Hwy. Having the motor suddenly cap at 10pm while on Lee Hwy beside the Custis...

    When you say "Washington Blvd" do you mean "Washington St" aka Lee Hwy?

    Chris is right - the new bridge is just a way to avoid crossing the street at grade. However, many of us would like to see...

    Ugh, DES. Virginia law allows ebikes on trails (section 46.2-903) and does not give localities the authority to change that. Enter Dillon Rule and the Arlington ordinance violates state law. ACPD...

    I've ridden 2 Plusses and never experienced this. I thought they were really great ebikes.

    I've ridden a bunch ebikes, generally, and most newer models ride like regular bikes, just stronger.

    Arlington is updating it's bike plan, and we'll need to make sure we've thought hard about Crystal City/Pentagon City. That FMR route under Shirlington Road, and the Eads St alternative to the MVT...

    Thanks for coming out to the BAC.

    And to anyone interested in seeing MTB, cyclocross and pump tracks in Arlington, the time is now to comment on the Parks' Master Plan.

    (1) When an unprotected lane is beside parking (as on most of the streets you mentioned), where in the lane do you ride? Assuming you're answer is on the left side, do you find drivers ever give you...

    PS. This will be voted on at the December meeting. Keep discussing. Tell other folks. The survey won't make the decision for us, but it'll be good information.

    As I've said before, with the 3 foot passing law, it's not possible for a car to legally pass a bike without leaving the lane unless the lane is >12' wide. There are few of those in Arlington. ...

    Army Navy Drive is at a different elevation from the highway. The Custis is only beside the highway for short stints, and then it is often at a (slightly) different elevation. The existing 27 trail...

    *ding ding ding* The thing is, there are more people in the latter group, than the former, and the former can always just ride in the road.

    Also, this seems like a flyer campaign (to hit the regulars) and a sign by the pay to park thing (to hit the occasional parkers) should go a long way towards fixing this.

    BAC Priorities 2018-2020

    As we started discussing at the October Arlington BAC meeting, we're going to focus our work over the next 2 years to focus on 3 or so priorities.

    This thread is for us to discuss what those...

    If a passenger side door can open in the bike lane, either the buffer area is too narrow, or the cars are parking incorrectly. I don't head through there daily, but if those who do could report...
