    Ah. Maps, like data analysis in general, is not neutral wrt conceptual assumptions. FIRST you have to decide what distinctions matter. If someone thinks that flexpost protected bike lanes are great,...

    I guess it wouldn't if conventional bike lanes were as wide as a standard buffered lane including the buffer, but with few exceptions they are not, AFAICT.

    That strikes me as the wrong thing to say in front of a 5YO even if the doc had been using a sophisticated multifactor measure and/or the child had actually been obese.

    And yes,...

    People who are that fit are A. A pretty tiny minority and B. Probably quite aware of all the measurement complications on their own.

    So do I need to consult a tide chart before riding?

    Unfortunately it would require WMATA to actually check which trains people are putting their bikes on. Which is why I think the best modification is simply to drop the ban on Fridays.

    From Waterfront to Navy Yard the BTS folks could count the bikes, and then the Census folks could tell us why our methodology is wrong.

    Because not that many people are tall enough for the inaccuracy to make much difference, esp compared to the fuzziness as to exactly at what point on the BMI (or modified BMI) scale health problems...

    I am planning to come, and it looks like riding from the start will work for me, but I would like the livetrack anyway, because QOTM is interested in meeting us (not by bike sadly) in Annandale.

    Good luck with your goals. I was already well down from obese before getting into biking, but got down from overweight (or was it just below overweight, I forget?) to right in the middle of "normal"...

    There were several inches of water on 4MRT way back at Mount Vernon Avenue, so I bailed and took Eads.

    Just to note there is still construction on Eads where it crosses under I395 to the Pentagon parking lots, at least as of this last Tuesday.

    1. I am not absolutely convinced DC area people are necessarily less able to follow rules on this than Californians, but I don't want to rehash that argument (I will note that while I do kvetch about...

    There are definitely times (the trains are much less crowded on Fridays, somewhat less I think on Mondays, and less crowded near the end of peak) and places (the reverse commute direction in many...

    :p

    Of all the reasons VDOT might give for not doing anything (beyond what they have proposed), this is the one I fear the least. :) We shall see though.

    A. I thought ebikes had their white lamps in front and red behind, like everone else - am I missing something.

    As I said The ideal access into the redeveloped Landmark from the west would be a pedestrian bridge, perhaps from Quantrell.

    Well at least this gives me an excuse to put off buying panniers and stick to my old back pack a bit longer. But this is kind of depressing.

    Gallows lanes are a good example of a place where the geography should mean more biking (W&OD to Tysons) and the lanes/street are bad (narrow bike lanes on a high speed road) That said, these lanes...
