    As for the utility work, I hope it proceeds more quickly than it did at Long Bridge Drive (Old Jefferson Davis Highway). That road was supposed to open at the same time as the park. But utility work...

    The park and trails at Potomac Yard are open to the general public, so they benefit more than just the nearby residents. I ride or run through that area frequently. (Well, at least I did, until I...

    The effect of bike frame visibility isn't negligible from the side. This comes into play at intersections.

    But I'd say that reflective tape or lights or cords (like BikeGlow) would have even more...

    Seriously? Final day of the season, Denard Span sets the Nats single-season hit record. Oh, and Jordan Zimmermann throws the 1st no-hitter in Nats history!

    Poynton may need to be added to the Forum Dictionary, as a noun and a verb. A Poynton can describe the double roundabout or more generally, a road intersection design based on shared space...

    Did Dorothy Rabinowitz approve this article? If not, it's another clear sign of the all-powerful and omnipotent "bike lobby."

    (Sarcasm intended, for new readers who aren't familiar with Rabinowitz...

    Seven Corners and Arlington Memorial Circle could use a similar makeover. NPS is looking to improve the safety of Memorial Circle (at Memorial Bridge). Maybe the double roundabout idea might not work...

    There's a lot of garbage in the storm sewer system too, not just rainwater. On a rainy day last week, I looked at a storm sewer opening in downtown DC. Just beyond the opening, I saw about 20 plastic...

    WeWork and Vornado are building the glorified dorm in Crystal City. The micro units will be tiny, more like dorm rooms than traditional apts. A micro unit building is also being added in Georgetown....

    He was dumping debris too. Plus there's the issue of him being paid specifically to remove that waste.

    As for the sewage, I don't think the company was handling that. Maybe it was wastewater from...

    But the optimist can say that all the new development is why there is now a Potomac Ave., a large park, a bike path along Potomac Ave. and the new trail along Main Line Blvd. to Braddock Rd. That...

    The new apartment building at the corner of Potomac Ave. and Rte. 1 (Station 650) is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2015. Their website indicates that the building will have an on-site bike...

    The Potomac Yard developer is installing outdoor exercise equipment along that trail. Might be useful for cross-training, cyclocross training and American Ninja Warrior training.

  18. No one was harmed in the making of this video

    Somehow, no one was seriously injured during this crash, which occurred last Friday near Moscow, Russia. Amazing.

    Some sort of utility work, south of 23rd St. I think that section will be repaved too, but not immediately. The link in the first post of this thread might have more details about plans for each...

    Is someone going to bring this list to WABA? That might be one way to help get a dialogue going. Some of us here are both cyclists and runners, but I doubt that any running specialists are going to...

    There are signs on the parking meters at 18th & Eads prohibiting parking between 9/23 and 10/4. I would guess that this is an approximate time line for the project.

    Then again, it could be related...

    Another reason why some sort of regional running forum or sub-forum would be useful. The conversation would also benefit cyclists because right now, there is no good place to discuss these issues...

    +1 on the response to the hostile overgeneralization post above. We do need at least a subforum on running in the DC metro area, something I've suggested in the past. This can help get more...
