    I hope you're suggesting to put chains between the bollards on the sidewalk (which is a great idea). Adding those chains between the plastic bollards that are between the cycletrack and the street...

    I do whatever is easiest/seems best in the situation. Often enough, that's nothing because there's no one around and I need to steady the bike. At Kidical Mass rides, I teach both, and most people do...

    Seriously - engineers should NEVER build switchbacks like that. They are literally unusable by bikes with long wheel bases. The bike gutter on the stairs is unhelpful if you have a box bike or kids...

    Someone asked about whom to report it to on Women & Bikes, so I assume they reported. Personally, I suspect this is one of those cases where you're going to have to have a County Board member (or...

    It's also fun to play "guess which parts of Arlington are hilly"

    Anything on Kidical Mass Arlington should be safe enough for the Phoenix crowd. Cobbling them all together would have a nice little tour of Arlington neighborhoods.

    Yeah, we called an audible and changed the date, because the weather looks SO MUCH BETTER on Saturday. We'll miss those of you who can't make it.
  13. Kidical Mass Arlington Ride this Saturday: 4/18/15

    We definitely should go for a bike ride. With kids. Through MY NEIGHBORHOOD!!! (I'm hoping to get some credit for organizing 2 full years of rides before routing one through my own neighborhood).

    Interesting wording. There's a light on Penn. (9th?) where there's an LPI, and the timing of the next light to the east is pretty short. When this was my commute, I'd have to jump the green traffic...
