    I think these ramps can be a good time. Since the zig-zag was done at Four Mile Run near the airport (up to the Potomac Yard Trail), I don't think I've ever done the airport loop without going up and...

    We've had this discussion before. If a driver hits you in the crosswalk when the hand has started blinking, you will be considered at fault. Which is total BS, but that's what it is. Fine for you,...

    I was a bit upset when I went through here yesterday morning and saw the aftermath (they were hosing down the street then) and then heard the Secret Service guys in Lafayette discussing what...

    Good thing I can afford my own beer then.

    Actually, not that opposed to it. Just looked at the site and it's just from Lorcom to Vacation. Doesn't affect the zoom-zoom at all. My bad.

    I get ya. It's not like I'm going to oppose them. I just think it's easier to go from the bike lane to the travel lane, like Scoot says, without the bollards. The folks on the Sunday rides I do do...

    Maybe it's just me being selfish and my type of riding, but I actually wouldn't want PBLs on Military. With the downhills you can go as fast as the cars, and I think it's safer to have more space...

    I suppose due to our writing in, they have now put an orange cone that fixes everything on top of the hole in the pavement.

    And not really a cone, but a larger barrel, so they must think it's...

    I joke all the time about the "orange cones that fix anything" mentality we have toward infrastructure problems, but now that we're a third-world country, we can't even afford those. A sinkhole is...

    I use that right turn lane all the time, in a car, to go from Arlington to Arlington. I could survive without it, but when I cycle that way, I don't feel that the right turn lane endangers me any...

    So cool they have bike racks. I did a ferry ride from Jersey City to Manhattan last year and you just sort of lean your bike against the gunnels, outside. I didn't realize they weren't going to raise...

    I am not familiar with how that mounts, but you *could* Gorilla glue the two broken parts of the mount back together, then use the same motion you always did before to release it, then toss the whole...

    The statement is completely irrelevant to the subject though. That old canard is used almost every time there's a discussion of bicyclists to justify whatever action some group wants to take, but the...

    I have started dropping off the curb before this; took the lane once this week also to avoid it, but don't feel I'd survive long doing that every day. No way a recumbent or kid-trailer-whatever-bike...

    I slowed last week to allow pedestrians to cross legally in a crosswalk in DC. A cyclist behind me started ringing his bell and charged through them. I did, in fact, catch up with him and told him...

    Careful. Use that terminology at GGW and some pedant will call you out. (This really happened.)

    Two comments on this:

    1) It was still there yesterday, though the path through was more open and you would be highly unlikely to touch any of the poison ivy unless you tried.

    2) No response...

    The Post has an article up showing that, according to a poll, 1 in 6 D.C. residents ride e-scooters. So, while they may be unpopular to many who don't ride them, 16.66% seem to be having fun.
