    I didn't want to start a new thread with this, but I did finish a video of the current King Street bike lanes (heading southeastward/downhill). I used a couple of 2012 historical images from Google...

    Cycling has always been my #1 sport of choice, but I'd say a close #2 would be hiking followed by camping, caving, yoga, tennis, racquetball, volleyball, and (mini or par 3) golf.

    Hiking is the...

    I'm sorry, but I can't help but laugh out loud at how ridiculous this picture looks. I really wish that someone with a trailer went through, knocking over all the cones because they're ALL in the...

    It wasn't until I took the picture that I really noticed the cyclists in the image. It definitely appeals to a wider audience (even with the not-so-nice crossing at 9th/Glebe as dasgeh pointed out).
