    They don't want humans begriming their scenic expressways. Or a conservative member of congress is leaning on them to support cars more.

    I've kicked around the idea of a folder to throw in the car while traveling. Transporting a full size bike in the trunk is a PITA.

    I've ridden it with kids. You need to be alert, you'll worry constantly about them at road crossings, but it's doable. Taking the lane on 50 with a 6 year old isn't.

    The MVT is a dangerously...

    They repaved the sections with the worst damage. That was the first repaving since the path was built (almost 30 years for the oldest sections). We were lucky to get that much because there is no...

    The local school board needs to pass a resolution asking for that, then the local government needs to pass an ordinance enacting it.

    1) it's not too dangerous to be useful, I use it on a fairly regular basis. I hate that VDOT couldn't deliver something better, but it's still the safest and most useful way to cover long north/south...

    The bike plan wouldn't get into that level of detail. It's focused on defining necessary routes & connectivity, not on implementation. In this case, it's listed as "existing off street trail" with no...

    They've been all for bikes for some time now, but lobby against any specific bike project. Change that, and they'll no longer be the devil.

    Bingo. Modern windshields are designed to minimize the force applied to a car occupant's head when they hit the windshield. (Because in the old days they were plain tempered glass and you'd either...

    In general the county has no power to do anything at all. It's VDOT, always VDOT.

    Yes, they suck. It's the trail we have, not the trail we might want or wish to have.

    If we're taking orders, I'd be happy smelling fewer carcasses.

    It could be that the data are of such poor quality, and the sample sizes so tiny, that any conclusions about helmets are specious. In which case, focusing public policy on things which do have strong...

    The pedestrian-as-cow-horn thing was also humorous. (And, unfortunately, more likely than that other stuff.)

    I saw someone driving through one of those two way turn lanes, honking, to pass a line of cars. I assume they were important.

    A regular bike helmet isn't designed to prevent facial lacerations. If that's a concern, you should be wearing a full face helmet. Otherwise, that falls into the category of "got lucky".

    Exactly. NPS gets to say they got something, and Alexandria got rid of something they couldn't use anyway. In either hands it's just going to sit there. Sweet deal.

    Without a canoe that's almost the worst possible trip in the region. Great example of why we need a pedestrian bridge over the potomac, though.
