    A Trump inspired wall along the GW Parkway would be a fantastic idea. Heck, I'll contribute the first dollar.

    I have a park stand and my biggest gripe about it is how unstable it is. It has three legs and has a tendency to tip towards the bike side due to the weight imbalance. The one pictured above looks...

    The very last wooden bridge before heading up the hill to Mt. Vernon is especially slippery year round and very treacherous. It's always highly shaded and you hit it at a curve from either...

    I strongly suspect they are shutting it off early just so they can head home that much sooner. Not only are people with disabilities inconvenienced, but those with strollers, bikes, crutches, etc.

    VA law says you don't need a crosswalk to legally cross a street so long as it is at an intersection of some sort (2-way, 4-way, whatever). About the only thing VA law forbids is crossing mid-block...

    I suspect they didn't bother checking registrations since the weather was poor. They probably figured half the people registered wouldn't show up which appears to be the case.

    A natural experiment would be to compare longevity and overall healthiness of the Dutch with a country of similar genetic and socioeconomic makeup that doesn't bike. Or, compare the biking Dutch...

    Yeah but in a fairly small area and I was dock blocked for the first when I arrived home on Cabi.

    I wrote a letter supporting the bike lanes a few weeks ago. How frustrating the board decided against them.

    I consider my helmet mirror to be as important as the helmet for safety equipment. I'm absolutely amazed (and appalled) that more people don't use mirrors. I know they are considered dorky but a...

    I don't know if it has improved my driving but my pedestrian awareness has increased immensely due to biking. Now when crossing streets my head is swivelling around looking for all sorts of...
