    As one with kids poised to enter APS, I am not so pessimistic. We have plenty of APS land that is under-utilized. We have opportunities to do better. And we have the resources to build. Everything in...

    Agreed. A big detail will also be whether this is a protected bike lane (which shouldn't take much space, because there won't be parking). Wilson is scary, and will need more than paint to convince...

    It's an idea. Problem is, how do you know who "needs" it? Just take pregnant women: I was able to ride normal bikes without a problem with #1 until I was pretty big. With #2, riding a normal bike...

    Maybe those people using reasonable ebikes on the trails don't want to be breaking the law.



    We generally only get enforcement against bikes when there's a collision, which makes sense: bikes...

    That strip mall routinely plows the snow from their parking lot onto the Custis, has actively resisted Capital Bikeshare, and has lackluster bike parking and the worst bike shop in Arlington.
