    Just clarifying my argument, because you've misstated it: I think there are people who are uncomfortable on roads at slower speeds, but comfortable at higher speeds. Thus, there are routes that...

    I do not think anyone should be going 28mph on an MUT near pedestrians. Period. Do I need to put that at the end of every post? I also think people are perfectly capable of slowing down to fit...

    You've made the mistake of importing the California over here, where it doesn't (yet) apply. We've been discussing the California system because many of us think it will become dominant. But it isn't...

    True, though I'll note that the 3 bad examples have been riding for at least the last 3 years. A lot of "newbies" are riding ebikes, and somehow, we're not adding the bad examples.

    But it's not about you (or me, for that matter). It's about all those people who aren't going to ride those streets at 15mph but would at 25mph. The question isn't whether the X number of people who...

    Ah. Where are you getting an 18mph speed limit on the Custis? I'm not saying that there shouldn't be one, but there isn't one currently, and that is certainly slower than the predominant speed on the...

    It's that it FEELS safer. Yes, you still get passed, but you get passed less on neighborhood streets going 25 mph than you do going 20mph. And when you get passed (on a neighborhood street or on Lee)...

    I don't get your point. If you have a class 3 ebike and those are banned on the trails, then you don't have the choice to slow down and use the trail. If you instead buy a class 2 ebike and take the...

    The point about hills is good. I don't know if Class 2s can actually maintain 20mph uphill. As I understand it, manufacturers have 2 options for compliance: 1) have a speed limiter or 2) have the...

    I can't speak to Reston, and it seems "speed limit capable" ebikes is a red herring -- we're talking ebikes that can go 28mph, which may or may not be capable of the speed limit. But I'd agree that...

    For those familiar with N Eads Street in Arlington, is any of the bike lane a parking-protected bike lane?

    I 1000% agree with your last sentence. I just don't know how to get there. For now, most streets in Arlington have a speed limit of 25mph, and enough stops that average speed is probably around...

    Love it. Keep 'em coming.

    I was thinking citations for:

    blocking the bike lane
    3-foot when passing rule
    failure to yield to person crossing at a crosswalk
    failure to yield while turning

    So you are advocating for a total ban of all ebikes on all trails, right? How do you reconcile that with the reality that most routes (in NoVa, at least) involve some trail riding (where ebikes would...

    I would not want to ride downhill on Arlington Ridge in the dark. Drivers drive FAST and sightlines are bad. I'd take 18th to Eads, which is so much flatter and not that much longer.

    Wait, what? Who's advocating for ebikes as a panacea? I advocate for them as one piece in a much, much larger puzzle. I also consistently advocate for mode separation trails.
