    I kind of suspect that someone in the city staff may have made an honest mistake in 2016, perhaps based on bad info from VDOT or just a lack of understanding of the federal requirements, and that...

    Sure, on the other side of U.S. 1. And that's the only station even remotely near that site (or the adjoining neighborhoods) without a good hike to the west, south or north.

    Certainly, we will...

    What a beautiful sight.

    I certainly wasn't accusing city staff of anything nefarious, but the 11 sites approved in 2017 have presumably met all of the above criteria and still have not been installed. During my most recent...

    Finally, the city has updated its page on the CaBi expansion for the first time since very early this year. Unfortunately, the newly updated page confirms that no expansion will take place until...

    I would love to come -- I just recently moved to the city from Arlington but was interested in learning more about the lay of the land here, including who does what. I did notice that BPAC's website...

    25mm tires too thick for my fork?

    Hi everybody -- longtime reader, first-time poster. Anyway, I needed to replace my 23mm tires in a pinch, but the bike shop I went to didn't have anything thinner than 25mm. That seemed OK at first,...
