    Even though it requires more effort for me to get myself to 9 am meetings on time properly attired and bathed, I wait until 8 am in order to go through JBMHH in order to avoid biking east through...

    Thanks, all. Dang, I was hoping it was bus or bike, but figured that was too good to be true. A label or sign would be nice. The diamond certainly doesn't seem to dissuade all of the autos. I'm...

    When I travel down 19th near Constitution, there is a diamond on the second lane from the right. Because this is usually around 9 p.m., cars are usually traveling >= 40 mph in their desire to get...

    Here's a (bad) shot of this morning's (at least) 3 vehicle accident at one of the GW crossings. Anyone have more information? If it is like any of the 2 accidents with which I have been involved on...

    Sorry to see this. Hope the individual is ok.

    (Clarendon) Orange is the New Black

    I searched for a discussion of this and missed it so apologies if I am restarting something that has been completely dissected. I ride CaBi but am an ignoramus. Anyway, I'm finding that Clarendon...

    George Washington Memorial Parkway

    I just saw this article about discussions around bringing bikeshare to GWMP. I'm about 2 months late on noticing this, but I'm curious if there is anything new on this front.

    I shudder a bit to...
  13. Survey to inform search for Arlington's general manager

    If you are able to subject yourself to "Arlington-ified HR mumbo jumbo," the survey on priorities in the search for Arlington's new county manager could be a useful vehicle for increasing the...

    I think I need to give up on the 15th street lanes during rush hour. It was a madhouse last night and I think I'm safer dealing with the cars on the road. Also annoying are the cyclists who see the...

    Almost got t-boned by a guy in a red SUV this morning at the crossing over Wash. Blvd. south of Memorial Circle. A jogger directly in front of me was crossing and I decided it would be easier for...

    Thanks, Chris. I now remember that I asked this previously and you said the same thing. (I had that vague sense and tried searching the forum before I asked but came up empty.) Thanks for your...

    There is a new station on Walter Reed just north of Columbia Pike. Like many others, I wanted a station at this location. Unfortunately, the station is next to an elementary school and a block away...

    Had the same thought. Happy to participate. I didn't even hear a mention of BTWD on BTWD (though I may have missed one).

    Also wish the weather report were slightly more extensive so that I could...
