    It should be painfully obvious at this point that if VDOT did NOTHING AT ALL the trails would be clear by now. What we should demand as a minimum is that they don't make things worse by piling snow...

    I'm pretty sure the REITs find it cheaper to just rent Fairfax county rather than own it outright.

    I drove this morning. There was a literal salt blizzard on 495, which was mildly terrifying. (Near-zero visibility.) I guess they figure we're done with snow for the season and they have to bill when...

    Yes, I think their bike policy is more a reflection of the reality that they can't enforce any policy due to the uncontrolled nature of many stations than any kind of bike friendliness. The...

    The county doesn't maintain very much, it's mostly VDOT.

    Nice rant, but misses the point. There are legal restrictions, practical restrictions, social issues, and political issues. NPS has some ability to reallocate resources, but not the freedom to spend...

    NPS does what Congress gives it money to do. Honestly, I'd rather have snow on the MVT than see money get cut from NPS's maintenance budget, which is way too small already.

    Probably more effective to reach out to disability advocates and PTAs. This isn't a bike issue: we had to close schools because kids couldn't walk on the sidewalk, and people in wheelchairs are...

    I've ridden BART. It is in no way comparable to rush hour on metro.



    I don't really give a crap about letting people use their judgment if the consequences affect others more than themselves. ...

    Is there anything new to say that wasn't already said the last time someone popped onto the forum just to advocate for this issue?...

    It will likely be weeks before the major VDOT trails/sidepaths in Fairfax are rideable. 10 foot glaciers at intersections are not uncommon. That much ice takes a while to melt, even with the...

    As of tonight Fair Lakes is mostly 1.5 lanes, occasionally necking down to .9 lanes. People are driving like it's dry and sunny, so watch your back. There are a number of missing turn lanes so...

    Early ride was great. By the time I stopped the sun was out and the ice was turning rotten and hard to ride. The entertainment value of this snowfall has probably passed, now we just have the nasty...

    On local roads in my part of (western) Fairfax the riding is mostly great on studs: the plows have created a nicely dressed sheet of ice. Beware of cars, they have no control and will slide turning...
