    Might I suggest encouraging your employer to locate adjacent to the National Science Foundation? Then you would not have to deal with Rosslyn again, at all.

    Let's talk about e scooters

    I mean yeah, I know we are the BIKE forum, but really, I can't think of a better informed group of people to talk about this with.

    Lets NOT talk about where they should be parked (which is the...

    Its a wider road than King Street. OTOH the massing of the buildings is already starting to give it an urban appearance, which also contributes to traffic calming, IIUC.

    Imagine driving 20MPH. I would love to say that to every driver in Alexandria. To the tune of, well, Imagine.

    This morning, as usual, a car passed me on the crest of the hill on 31st Street just east of Abingdon in Fairlington, IE just before the steep (for me anyway) descent. Usually I catch up to those...

    Also the drivers of the work vehicles seem to be aware of the need to get off the trail to let trail users by as soon as they are past the narrow part.

    I didn't notice the cooler though. ...

    I did the full 67 miles last year. Prior to that I had basically been doing my 20 mile round trip (about as irregularly as usual) Plus I did one half of Boundary Stones two weeks before. And a few...

    Standard width of a road lane, 10 feet minimum (but plenty of undieted lanes wider than that though). Standard width of a "lane" on a trail, about five feet I guess. Or narrower where the trail (or...

    You can use the trails owned by Arlington County and the City of Alexandria I am pretty sure (so Custis, Holmes Run, Four Mile Run, Eisenhower trail, PY trail, etc) and of course all the bike lanes...

    (Can't read the article, sorry.)

    Ofo and Mobike are probably not going to have permits continued after the current pilot, so they'd be fools to keep operations in DC going.

    That leaves only the...

    So to be clear, this means no Ofo or Mobike in Arlington either, and no chance of them coming to Alexandria? I ask both as an advocate (I believe Alexandria needs to open to dockless prior to next...

    ideally a PBL would have seperate bike signalling, and bikes would proceed when traffic in the general lanes has a no turn signal. I don't expect ArlCo will be doing that on Eads any time soon, esp...

    I will be leading (assuming the folks who responded so enthusiastically on Next Door actually show up) a ride down King Street to Old Town. Usually I just stay on King to Dangerfield to left on...

    Yesterday PM, I rode around the Pentagon to Long Bridge Drive. I was feeling slow coming back from M Street, so I rode the sidewalk (please no sidewalk shaming for that) on the east side of Boundary...

    Also if there is a sidewalk, that means the property owner has to clear it of snow. That is one reason they are often opposed. Alexandria has a program to add sidewalks too, but also looks at what...

    That sidewalk BTW, sometimes has vegetation issues that impact both pedestrians and people on bikes, but usually using call click connect helps, as the City trims the vegetation.

    I live on Park Center Drive in Alexandria. I commute to work via 31st to Shirlington to the 4MRT. I regularly ride on the sidewalk on the east side of King from Park Center Drive to 30th Street....

    I presume the signaling will change now (and maybe daylight the intersection). So horrible that someone has to die for that to happen.
