    Arlington 2019 Paving Map

    The 2019 Paving Map for Arlington County is up. Repaving is a great time to improve bike infrastructure (and streets generally). We'll discuss at the April BAC meeting, but for now, if you have...

    There are also a TON of parking spots in the rear.

    Anyone biking on the block by the shops would be advised to go slow enough to stop and to be hyper aware -- if you're in the travel lanes, cars...

    Just like on Veitch, where the PBL goes in front of SFHs and townhomes and on a bus route. You have breaks in the protected-ness for bus stops, and you deal with 2 weeks of annoying while residents...

    As you note, Strava is notoriously unreliable. And to clarify, I did not mean that there is no point at which Washington has a steeper grade than 16th. However, taking Washington between, say,...

    Details, for those who like those kinds of things, seem to be: Sunday, April 28, 2019, maybe starting at noon? and maybe start and end at the REI at 201 M St NE, Washington, DC 20002

    For those...

    Not only is Westover a destination, Washington is a direct, easy, flatter-than-alternatives route for heading east-west. All the more reason to put the bike route there.

    Safer, probably. But assuming there's no green for someone to cross the intersection in "lanes" going on the FMR, not more legal.

    I would think the only legal vagueness would arise if you biked out of the crosswalk. I think, on the legal technicality, you should stay in the crosswalk up onto the sidewalk, then enter the street...

    I'm very happy that they're not two-waying Fort Myer north of Lee. That would have created a second intersection of doom.

    On the issue of sidewalk-level PBLs: for riding with kids, I absolutely...

    True, though police harassment is worse. If you have a warning, you hopefully have enough information to report the officer for this ridiculousness.

    Because it's not no effort. Even with an ebike, with kids on the bike, I prefer the reduced hills of Washington to 16th (and Lee to Custis).

    More importantly, those arterials are more direct. ...

    I'm not advocating for anything short of protected, so no idea what Dismal is referring to. Also, Washington is way flatter than 16th, so ?

    I didn't push for the bike lanes on Wilson west of Ballston and don't think they add much to the bike network. If they were protected, I would have a different opinion.
