    I smile at them as they're coming by. 75% of the time, they stop beside me. A couple have struck up conversations (usually about my bike, a few times about shoaling - they claimed to not know it was...

    How about, if you don't have wheels, stay out of the cycletrack? I'm pretty sure there's explicit law to that effect. Does anyone know where it is for DC?

    As you get onto the ramp, there's a sign saying the speed limit is 20mph.

    Not that it's enough signage, but it's not nothing.
