    I rode this trail last night from Courthouse to 27 because I forgot how even 11 days after the storm, cyclists who aren't on roads or limited paths are still screwed. With the CaBi lights and in the...

    Where? The Snow Issue Form is inactive. The Make A Service request form doesn't have a category that seems appropriate. The closest is pothole, but that's different.

    As an aside, I did report...

    Plowing bicycle lanes in Arlington

    I get that it isn't first priority, but is Arlington ever going to plow the bicycle lanes? I'm thinking of Quincy and Fairfax in particular, but there are others. I keep forgetting and being...

    I have found and returned 2 wallets. One I found the person on linkedin and she sneakily gave me a reward which I would have rebuffed but was outwitted (not hard to do). She had had it stolen from...

    calculate your time to/from Pittsburgh

    Bike Pgh features a new calculator to calculate your time for biking to/from Pittsburgh. A bit more granularity (type of bike, weight, level of insanity, etc.) might be golden.

    I haven't been on a MARC train in about 9 years. I'm planning to be a tourist in Baltimore on Saturday. I'm guessing I can show up at Union Station, easily get a spot for my bike on the train, and...

    Building mgmt. is well aware of my concerns and is sympathetic, but not enough people complain for them to be able to justify spending the money to update the room so I'm always looking for things to...

    Are there quantity-based (headcount, units, visitors, etc) minimums? If so, I missed them. Are there policy recommendations? (Like bikes must be moved every such and such, or, these spots are...

    Not clear on what meeting N of Lincoln Memorial along Potomac means. I could wait by the bridge on the north side but since the sidewalk is closed, I presume we (even cyclists) would be taking the...

    Again this morning, the light at 15th and Jefferson seemed to not be giving the go-ahead to those crossing 15th. For the several minutes I was there, I did not see it change.

    I received a message...

    Thanks. Glad the trail is progressing, although it's always hard for me to watch the conversion from pervious to impervious.

    One more question, if I may. How terrible is Bladensburg Rd from the...

    Can someone please tell me how far up one could take the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail for a foray to this shop? This map seemed to imply that I could take it to Benning Road and that is my recollection...

    what to do about aggressive vehicle passes

    Each year, I get a little angrier about the following scenario which has happened to me many times on roads like Columbia Pike. I'm riding on the right side of the lane. I guess I could take the...

    I realize that, but sometimes when you majorly inconvenience a stakeholder, you think about what you can give them in exchange. That ANCC connection easement was approved in 2012 and we are at...

    Could this be used as an additional justification to get the Army Navy Country Club connection moving any faster than its current rate? 4MR is already a detour to Columbia Pike due to the crappy...

    Thanks for the confirmation. I have gone through this area with some regularity for 1.5 years and this is the first week I've observed this. It's just not a clear pattern - sometimes they are...

    That crossing on the north side of Memorial Circle is awful. I've been around for a number of accidents on the south side, but that crossing on the north scares me like none of the southern...
