    On a slight tangent but the cause of the accident in the original post highlights the need for peds to acknowledge passing calls. We can't read minds and if we are required to announce our passes...

    Regarding your average speed, if you are riding in a lot of traffic, dealing with a lot of lights, on trails, around a lot of peds, etc. you will never average more than 12 mph because you can't (or...

    You should plan on spending a few hours riding around DC itself. Lots of cool monuments and architecture. Slow going because of cars, lights, peds but it's a fun way to see the city. The NW part...

    Also, are you comfortable riding on the right hand side of the road? I presume Australians drive on the left.

    I only have a second to respond but you should be aware that August is usually very humid and hot here. I know Australia is hot but I don't know if Sydney is humid and that makes all the difference....

    Unfortunately runners hate running on concrete. They claim it is "harder" than asphalt which is often why they gravitate to the W&OD and bike lanes over sidewalks.

    I figure if it is legal to ride on the road then the tunnel should be fine. The only place I've seen a tunnel marked as a no go zone for peds and cyclists was in Williamsburg on the Colonial Parkway...

    Oh wow! I never knew these existed. Anyone know if they work well in real life? I have a VersaCart that I love but it's not gonna be practical once I move.

    Ha! That's amazing but I'm sure that would be against condo rules and I doubt the folks living below would be pleased. Many thanks for the offer though.

    Well, I pulled the trigger on Condo choice #2 last night. We ratified at 11:00 pm. It's been a crazy few days to say the least. Hopefully all of the other stuff (home inspection, title, appraisal,...

    They are planning on "fixing" two other intersections along the WOD and 4MR (but not Walter Reed?!) too as part of the same project.

    I just realized people not be pleased hearing my cleats on the steps outside their doors. Will have to check that too.

    I would have a large balcony. I'm thinking a hoist would be far easier. ...

    To be clear, I have decided against condo #1 (pictured at the start of the thread) because of the staircase. It is narrower than a normal staircase (not sure how that is allowed), and I can't change...

    Thank you so much for your super generous offer. Don't tell my landlord but in the wee hours of the morning I was in my PJs lugging my bike up and down the stairwell in my highrise apartment...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the condo association won't be pleased with my bike behmouth cluttering up the public grounds. If I do move into a more bike friendly place that I am seriously considering, I...

    I did think about a "lift" system as you show but the stairwell is steep, narrow, and the door opens up within an inch of hitting the bottom step. It's even a little uncomfortable getting in and out...
  20. Hanging something from the ceiling wouldn't work...

    Hanging something from the ceiling wouldn't work since I'd have to try to hang it up while standing on the stairs. That seems like a recipe for an eventual accident. Only other possibility is a...

    Anybody have any experience at the West Village of Shirlington. Nice huge condo but I'd have to go up an external flight of stairs (though they seem to have low rises) and two flights of wide stairs...

    Yeah, the trike is gonna have to be sold. Despite the fact that I will be buying more sq footage my storage capacity in many decreases dramatically. I will lost a garage space and large bike room...

    Augh. I didn't think of that which is ironic since I broke my ankle in my current apartment just from slipping on the floor. I absolutely love this condo, top floor, completely renovated with...
  24. Can I carry my bike up and down these stairs every day?

    Hi all,

    I've viewed a condo that I really like unfortunately it requires going up a flight of stairs to get to it. On the plus side, the stairwell is inside my condo so I could mark up the walls...

    Yeah, I was gonna go with one of the biking specific realtors but kinda got sucked into using another one because I saw a place I really liked and clicked on the "schedule a tour now" button. I've...
