    This was my first venture into tactical urbanism, so I kept it limited to non-destructive (no damage to pavement, no graffiti needing clean-up, etc.). But I do like the ideas on how to take it a bit...

    I will be there! I'm flying in on a red-eye from Seattle Friday night (I arrive in town around sunrise on Saturday), but I will make sure my bike is up to snuff to do some riding.

    I miss riding...

    I dispute that claim as someone who used to ride on parts of Seminary Road between George Mason Dr and Beauregard and between Kenmore Ave and Janneys Ln. It's not the best road to ride on (especially...

    dasgeh is right. Drivers treat the GWMP as a highway, so even though the speed limit is 40, drivers hit 50 and even 60 mph (if not more in some cases).

    First off, blocking the bike lanes at the bottom of a big hill is very dangerous because people will be going faster and have less time to merge. They need to stop that!

    Second off, are those bike...
