    Oh absolutely, both for intrinsic and pragmatic reasons: they add visibility to the bike lane, and they generally aren't installed unless there's even more space for the post itself (wouldn't want...

    exactly. there's a page on the internets devoted to cars crashing into dunkin donuts. (it happens weirdly often.) hence my extreme skepticism of the notion that pedestrians are in any way "protected"...

    It's the hip new american definition of "protected", which means "a post specifically designed to bend when a car runs over it is all that stands between the cyclist and traffic". The bendy feature...

    Went to the meeting tonight, usual level of VDOT coordination. One person talking about how there are 9 lanes of demand, and there is no way to eliminate congestion by building, then another guy says...

    this one time, I was on my way to work and the trailer fell off my rig. sorry.

    That does remind me of a somewhat unusual traffic disaster I was stuck in one time. after many, many long minutes of...

    There are sections that have businesses, some of which seem to cater to trail users. (Signs on the trail, etc.)

    The REI one was about 2 stories and fairly small (that's what the weird circle at the front of the store was originally for). The one at Dicks was the height of the whole big box, 3 or 4 normal...

    Actually being on those ramps is a PITA, and incredibly confusing if you don't know where you're going (and annoying if stuck behind someone who doesn't know where they're going). It's a lot of...

    REI Fairfax opened with a climbing wall and quickly got rid of it. The Dick's nearby did the same. I don't know if that's because of lack of interest or liability concerns, but it seems that climbing...

    Getting rid of that ridiculous mess is part of turning 50 back from being an interstate highway. I drive there regularly--it sucks for driving, also. There just isn't a good reason for all of those...

    As usual, the best we can hope for, and it sucks. If I'm reading it right, motorists don't have to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks on stroads where the speed limit is more than 35MPH? We still...

    It would actually be really easy--you just reduce 50 at that crossing from a one mile long interstate highway to the kind of road it is on either side of that spot, and you'd have plenty of ROW for...

    In general, a crappy trail is better than no trail. At least there's the possibility of improvement--if you don't preserve a right of way, it's much harder to do anything.

    More important than changes to the existing Custis is trying to get the trail extended when they rebuild every single overpass from the beltway to centreville. Otherwise, the opportunity is lost for...

    Whether cyclists are in more danger from motorists (likely unless someone is joyriding in a tunnel) is basically irrelevant. None of the local media cater to cyclists, that isn't a demographic to pay...
