    Those bloody CaBis were all over the place. It made it really hard to drive to the cherry blossoms. DC should do something!

    Bingo.

    My guess is this will be settled out of court because the driver and his employer don't want this before a jury.

    When my wife was run over by an SUV in broad daylight, police cited the driver with the same offense. My sense is this tells the insurance company that he obviously did something wrong even if the...

    It's definitely not from a lawn mower. I saw it this morning at the intersection of the 14th St bridge ramp and the MVT. Clearly done intentionally.

    Thanks Bruce. I live 1/2 mile from SHL where my wife was run over by an SUV. I may have already sent a note to my representatives but did so again today. Mt Vernon skews old in terms of demographics....

    I'm all for a Royal Street bike boulevard. I doubt I'd use it for commuting though. Union Street is fine and already has fewer stop signs. Except when the weather is nice, the tourists descend, and...

    I prefer option no. 1. I like the idea that trail traffic stays on the trail. It will make for a more predictable flow of bikes. I also like the addition of the speed table. I hate speed bumps. I...

    I am not (thank god) a Tysons commuter. And hope I never am. If the Tysons Partnership wants to show bike commuters some love, they can throw their support (and $$$) behind making sure that all bike...

    I live in MV and my kids used to go to Maret. The route you have is pretty much as good as any. probably the fewest traffic lights and least traffic. Riding across Key Bridge abd up Wisconsin is no...

    I've done the GAP, the Erie Canal, and the North Central. The GAP can be done in 3 days pretty easily. The Erie Canal is an entirely different experience and worth the trip. I diverted from the canal...

    I'm not riding tomorrow either. 15 miles into a stiff headwind at 8 degrees is a recipe for a trip to the ER.

    Be one with your frailty! I hate when I am dropped on hills by everyone. I ride at least 3 miles per hour slower than I did ten years ago. But I still enjoy it.

    As for recovery, I try to make it...

    Alll I want is for the National Park Service to pave and treat the Mount Vernon Trail after snow and ice storms. (I went 0-5 for bike commutes this week for the first time in month and months.)

    What a shame you aren't taking advantage of the fantastic US 1 cycletrack that runs from the beltway to Belvoir. Oh, wait....Nevermind.

    For the last three mornings I have watched cars blow through the red light to take a right on Lynn. No attempt to stop whatsoever. On two of those occasions they did so with a ACPD officer looking...

    Have you tried your local hardware store? My hardware store has o-rings in many, many sizes. I buy them for use with my Sigma bicycle computer. I always carry a couple extra just in case.
