    It has been determined that it will be (unofficially, of course) renamed the Four Mile Run Delta. Or "Jesse's Landing at Four Mile Run Delta" in order to encourage commuting by kayak.

    I understand there are many constraints, and will be happy whenever it is, but I would be even happier if it is NOT January 14th, 15th or 16th.

    Also

    500 miles of bike lanes, shared bike routes, and shared use paths, expected to double by 2040

    Now can we stop ragging on the planners for adding miles of mediocre door zone bike lanes,...

    Connectivity - it means biking in your suit, and riding with your helmet in your basket. Or something. #Failedatthiswholeadvertisingmarketingthing

    I suspect most of what y'all will focus on, and what we will focus on too, are recent "serious" asks that should be accelerated.


    But thinking outside the box a bit, time to revive the...

    This appears to be what the Commonwealth promises to fund directly as part of the deal (and yeah, a lot of people in the City are breathing a sigh of relief about the metro entrance, though that may...

    Today was the last Crystal City Coffee Club. Only Erin and I were there (the other Ken did not have the patience to wait for us ;) )

    Next week - National Landing Coffee Club. Or National...

    So it's good bike handling skills that make the Freds think its safe to thread needles, to pass close at speed, and to not call passes? And to do this by blind curves? I mean there's plenty of good...

    I have in the past been sympathetic to that line of thinking (which as I have said is particularly important on the most crowded trails like the MVT from 4MRT to the 14th street bridge, and I guess...

    My own experience on the MVT lately is that Ebike riders are riding MORE politely than human powered riders - though I think I am really thinking of the subset of human powered riders who are males...

    3. Its a LOT easier to satisfy more riders when we have an actual street grid that means more parallel routes (though its not like everything in DC is hunky dory for riders these days). But most of...

    Gotta correct that. The companies are dropping dockless regular bikes because of the caps on total dockless vehicles - they can make more money per vehicle with ebikes and scooters, so given a cap,...

    And again, the sheer number of people I see riding the sidewalk (of varying ages, races, types of bikes, etc) all around the region, even in places where the street seems eminently rideable to me...

    I am, in the end, glad that this will be there. I think its benefits as a new route for people on bikes will be positive. I don't think it will end up converted to general travel lanes. While I...

    I've only ridden through a couple of times since the PBLs were in place, but have ridden that corridor several times before then (obviously not as much as many people here). I find the PBL at least...

    My understanding is that NPS plans to redo all the signs on the bridge within - not sure, the next decade I guess - and when that is done, the post in the trail will be moved. Not sooner.

    Even if this becomes more rideable I don't think it will ever be suitable for fast riding.

    It WAS getting better, as the construction on storefronts was completed, so the real sidewalk was more...
