    Arlington is updating it's bike plan, and we'll need to make sure we've thought hard about Crystal City/Pentagon City. That FMR route under Shirlington Road, and the Eads St alternative to the MVT...

    Thanks for coming out to the BAC.

    And to anyone interested in seeing MTB, cyclocross and pump tracks in Arlington, the time is now to comment on the Parks' Master Plan.

    Instructions and...

    (1) When an unprotected lane is beside parking (as on most of the streets you mentioned), where in the lane do you ride? Assuming you're answer is on the left side, do you find drivers ever give you...

    PS. This will be voted on at the December meeting. Keep discussing. Tell other folks. The survey won't make the decision for us, but it'll be good information.

    As I've said before, with the 3 foot passing law, it's not possible for a car to legally pass a bike without leaving the lane unless the lane is >12' wide. There are few of those in Arlington. ...

    Army Navy Drive is at a different elevation from the highway. The Custis is only beside the highway for short stints, and then it is often at a (slightly) different elevation. The existing 27 trail...

    *ding ding ding* The thing is, there are more people in the latter group, than the former, and the former can always just ride in the road.

    Also, this seems like a flyer campaign (to hit the regulars) and a sign by the pay to park thing (to hit the occasional parkers) should go a long way towards fixing this.

    We brainstormed during the October BAC meeting, and came up with this list:

    A. Bring All Types of Cyclists Together (commuters, family, mountain, racers, etc.)

    BAC Priorities 2018-2020

    As we started discussing at the October Arlington BAC meeting, we're going to focus our work over the next 2 years to focus on 3 or so priorities.

    This thread is for us to discuss what those...
  12. If a passenger side door can open in the bike...

    If a passenger side door can open in the bike lane, either the buffer area is too narrow, or the cars are parking incorrectly. I don't head through there daily, but if those who do could report...

    It's the stairs I fear the most, when I'm biking in the Virginia-bound direction with my kids.

    Ok. But that's the routing of the trail, so it's not the biggest detour. Alternatively, you can just zip around the Lincoln and take the road down.
  15. Yeah, maybe that's better, though the Roosevelt...

    Yeah, maybe that's better, though the Roosevelt Bridge path is super narrow. It's basically a "pick your poison" situation.
  16. Huh?

    Huh?
  17. What? To get from the upstream Memorial Bridge...

    What? To get from the upstream Memorial Bridge sidepath to the RCP trail is super easy -- when you get to the ramp from RCP to Memorial Bridge (first road crossing, no light), just turn left on that...

    I think you get all those crossings from looking at the map. There are bridges involved, so, e.g. you cross over Rock Creek Parkway.

    You do have to cross Bacon & 23rd, both at lights, ramp from...

    Trashcans are just something residents need to figure out. I have a friend who lives on the Veitch PBL and she said it took 2-3 trash days for folks to get used to the change.

    There's a pump track in Richmond, too. I am no MTB expert, so I don't much more than that.

    We will discuss this at November's BAC meeting (Nov. 5 7pm 2100 Clarendon Blvd). Please come.

    I have...

    I've had this thought, though it's NPS land. It's worth adding to the conversation.

    Have we discussed that corner on the DC-NE corner of the bridge sidepath yet? The completely blind 90 degree left you have to make if you're headed east (right if you're headed west)? Seems like a...

    Yes, this is what WABA has been calling for, and what will (hopefully) make it into Arlington's Bike Element.



    These are not reasons that folks in Arlington resist bridges like this. In fact,...

    But the one on the water side comes up to one's torso. Less chance of falling over it.

    True, but adopting is one step in a hard process. Working with a County that won't even hold meetings on how we can possibly adopt it... that's even harder.
