    I was thinking of DC BAC, Alex BPAC, etc. It is my understanding that WABA supports local VZ plans that include enforcement and many other policy changes. There are of course lots of policy and legal...

    none of the bike advocacy orgs in the region that I know of is focusing only on PBLs and ignoring the range of enforcement, legal, and other policy issues.

    I've been observing radio silence for a few days (spent Passover with Orthodox people, and my phone was off). I did hear about this terrible thing on Friday, as we were headed there.

    I did not...

    Thanks. The Bontragers seem easy to walk in (so far) - I had been mentally prepared for it being like trudging around in ski boots. They also come with little covers to protect the cleats during...

    Is this too good to pass up?

    Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.

  7. Another issue with sharrows and the VC approach...

    Another issue with sharrows and the VC approach generally, is scaleability. Sharrows "work" today, because there are not that many people on bikes and those who pick a route without seg infra are...

    To clarify, I agree that 85% to 45% is a net benefit. In places where there is no segregated infra possible, I do support correctly placed sharrows. I also support them in those places where the...

    I did some quick googling and found a guy opposing current standards that allow too narrow DZBLs, talking about lack of good reporting of dooring incidents, etc. Definitely an anti-DZBL guy.

    And...

    Expanding the sidewalks is expensive, especially as it typically involves rebuilding the drainage.

    One option is to put in flexposts right where the corner cutting is most a problem - there is something like that in the new bike lane (not door zone) on SB 7th St SW near the Wharf. You would do...

    The lanes on Gallows are pretty bad (I note though those are not door zone bike lanes).

    I am thinking more of places like Eye Street SE-SW in DC, 4th Street SE in DC, Commonwealth in Alexandria,...

    My position in the bike lane will vary. Sometimes of course the parking spaces are empty, in which case I will often ride on the right edge of the bike lane. If I its a time and place where I think...

    My sense is that while many drivers will drive close to the edge of the bike lane (which will be too close if I am riding on the left of it to avoid potential dooring) they will also generally not...

    There are semi dockless systems that charge you extra if you place bike somewhere other than a dock, but they do so by whether you have actually locked up. This would have to be purely by GPS I...

    I think my point is being missed, but that's okay. This isn't worth pursuing.

    I am going to continue to advocate for a multimodal future. Including opposing what I perceive to be unfair attacks on the dockless program. How the future settles out depends on what we as...

    Just about everything made by man is built to be destroyed. A service life of ten years is an expected service life as surely as an expected service life of one month is (again to note we don't...

    We hear car alarms probably once a week or so, always at night, and we live on the 12th floor. When we have our windows open we can hear the buzz of traffic from King Street (we are not right on...

    1. There has been craziness with scooters around the mall and tidal basin lately? Its Cherry Blossom time. Craziness in all modes. Sure. To note though, I have seen scooters ridden in orderly...

    I don't want to minimize anyone's frustration that leads to dumping a scooter in the river. But just imagine what the public reaction would be if a cyclist did even minor deliberate damage to a car...

    AFAICT people leave them in strange spots (IE not walkable to anything) because they run out of charge. I suspect they are left badly parked and not collected on trails because its harder for the...

    Not only are we alien, subversive of norms, many of us dress funny, but we also are a super powerful minority who control govt officials behind the scenes.



    Oh dear :(

    I've ridden it a few times. I think the City may need to start a program to provide ophthalmology help to residents, since many seem to have trouble seeing cyclists, regularly claiming to have never...
