    I always ride on the correct side of the river. East side when riding upstream, and west side when riding downstream. I wouldn't want to salmon on the Potomac.

    It was my favorite place at the Wharf. I took my bike in for substantial repairs after it was damaged in my (keneinehara) only collision. I went a couple of times for coffee, but several times for...

    The locations are determined and the stations installed by the jurisdictions. There have been delays in NoVa as the locales wrestle with VDOT (funding pass through) interpretation of fed mandated...

    I ride on Eye Street to Navy Yard area. A few months ago when construction on a new building made EB Eye Steet SE impassable, I tried going Maine to the trail to the Titanic Memorial, to P Street to...

    So. trails.

    In my City we got a trail, it's called the Holmes Run Trail. Multiple "temporary" detours. Some with no plans or funding in place to fix. IF we had huge numbers of ebikers relying...

    I still think though that whatever the NHTSA data on urban vs rural fatalities, its useful for people who support safer biking in our region to be aware of the actual existence of numerous arterials...

    Hmmm.

    The District of Columbia, is, just now, in 2019, about to pass a law to make 25MPH the default speed on arterials. And I believe there will be exceptions to that.

    Wasn't that a door zone bike lane, that sort of disappeared at 26th? I mean I confess to usually taking it, but definitely lost VC points for doing so. The new SB bike lane is not door zone?
