    I wouldn't say incompetence. Two people missed the glass, a third found it. That tire is demoted to back up status anyway, so I should be good for a while.

    Every time I get on a bike in DC, I am safer because of Capital Bikeshare. The increase in bikes on the road, due in no small part to CaBi, means I'm less likely to be run over. If he would like to...

    Downtown DC is mostly passable but no longer fun to ride. The streets that have been cleared are very wet. Many of the cross streets are totally covered, and it's really tough to ride in this...
