    I think they're pretty limited in what they can do because of the high volume of turning traffic. And having a contraflow lane on a road with a lot of stop lights is a huge pain. That's why I don't...

    When they had the bollards there, I couldn't get in with the kid trailer. The whole reason I was excited about the L street lane was taking the kids back from the Dr at 21st and K.

    I suspect DC doesn't give a crap because traffic doesn't move that fast there anyway. They're happy to provide traffic suggestions (not enforcement, because there are no consequences to disobeying)...

    That's an entirely reasonable thing to do, though it will require much channeling of Dirt to get a good outcome. Good luck.

    Nice to chat with dbb for two blocks on the way in. I could hit his building with a rock from my building if the windows opened, you'd think we'd see each other more often.

    Ooh, a double WeeHoo. That's pretty cool. Though I think I'd prefer two wheels and two sets of pedals. That looks like a lot of weight on the seatpost.
