    Alternatively, implement a $5 "honking tax" that is dedicated entirely to bike/ped/transit funding.

    I get the feeling that the law is vague enough that you're basically at the mercy of the responding police officer and how they perceive the situation and write the report. If the report leaves any...

    The RCP trail in front of KenCen has been detoured up to Rock Creek Parkway, with concrete barriers separating the trail from traffic, similar to the Custis detour from a while back...no more Covered...

    Yeah, but the context is also that the current neighborhood was established in 1940, and most of the street layout even earlier (the house I used to own there was built in 1939). You might make it...

    Strava says 3% average, but that all depends on where you stop/start the segment. Oddly, my PR for that segment was on a fixed gear...

    Seems like the perfect opportunity to turn those crosswalks into speed tables. Also, the speed limit between Longfellow (maybe even Patrick Henry) and McKinley should be lowered to 15mph.

    Personally, I usually just take M/Canal to Foxhall to MacArthur and ride MacArthur all the way out. In DC, it’s two lanes and low traffic, so you can take the right lane without too much...

    The solution to this problem is to just blow a bunch of money on a power meter. Cadence/speed/GPS conflict solved!

    I'd take it outside to an area with a clear view of the sky, turn it on, and just let it sit for like 10 minutes for the GPS to lock. I know that when I travel somewhere outside my normal area, it...

    Ugh, this detour is going to be a huge PITA for W&OD>Custis riders. For the more comfortable road riders out there, hopping off the W&OD and onto Washington Blvd at Lee Hwy is probably the fastest...

    The C&O towpath was in pretty good shape, surprisingly...at least from Fletcher's to Chain Bridge. Some frozen puddles, but nothing that was really a hazard or not easily avoidable.

    I hope they have sturdier seatpost collars! I've had problems with loose seatposts on a majority of the Jumps I've ridden. Of course I've tried to tighten them, but the nuts always seem to be stuck.

    TR Bridge is like, 50% unrideable. I had to walk most of it tonight. Custis is re-freezing fast and felt kinda dangerous in a lot of places, even with studs. The zig-zag at the East Falls Church...

    The DC portion of the CCT is "rideable," but not great. Basically, there's like a 1-foot wide strip of relatively smooth, but non-slick ice. Thankfully, there aren't many people out on it. With my...

    Are we talking about the same spot? Also, the times I know where cars have gone off the road here have all been during morning rush hour in essentially normal weather conditions. ::shrug::

    My favorite is the wall on 123 eastbound over the GWMP where the GWPM offramps onto 123, which has been hit several times in the last couple of years. Imagine being so bad at driving that you hit a...

    Well of course speed is a factor for crashes/incidents all along the GWMP, but this spot and the incidents that happen there are pretty unique and speed on its own can't explain it. The physics of it...

    I've seen the direct aftermath of at least two in the last 2-3 years and I'm seriously baffled about why this happens. Whenever I drive the GWMP through that section I think "what is going on here...

    I made a fully-refundable hotel reservation just in case, but would definitely share an Airbnb. And I will humbly submit my name for consideration to take the ride-down slot :D

    Per DC regs on bikes:



    So the answer to the first question is "yes," and to the second is "no" (which is one reason this rule is stupid).

    This incident sucks and I'm sorry. The guy on a bike in the story sounds like a serious dipshit.

    It also happens that your take is a steaming pile of garbage.
