    I've ridden it a few times. I think the City may need to start a program to provide ophthalmology help to residents, since many seem to have trouble seeing cyclists, regularly claiming to have never...

    Amazing. Two bikes on I66 within a year, but one of my fellow Alexandrians says she has not seen a cyclist on Seminary Road in 30 years.

    I try to be the "happy warrior" of bike advocacy. Though there is a lot in the way of that. Sigh. Nextdoor. Sigh.

    Anyway, the NB lane on 7th from Maine to Eye SW is now done, and looking good.

    I am pleased as punch about the new SB bike lane on 7th Street SW, from Eye Street to Maine. I had heard years ago that something like this was coming with the new development (the building at the...

    barring anything unforeseen I will be there, will give the Alexandria Infrastructure prize, and will be making a plug for more bike infra in Alexandria!

    Post ride report

    1. Ride to Mount Vernon was a little faster, and felt much easier, than last time I did it. Yay for tailwinds.

    2. I thought the part from Mt Vernon estate to Gristmill Park...

    I don't know, but I will try to ask the Feds on bikes listserve, as the main employment center there is the federal center.

    Eh. There are about a thousand places in Alexandria where I would love to have a sidewalk as good as the sidewalk (not the PBL) at the Wharf. Its not super wide, and in the past there were...

    So basically Mt Vernon is a cul de sac on weekends, unless I am willing to ride through the Fort on Richmond Highway?

    So I should do the reverse? Come south through Kingstowne, via FFX County Parkway (or branching off to Backlick?) then the sidepath on Rte 1 to the Tully Gate, and back north via the MVT?
  11. A nice day means more riders across the region,...

    A nice day means more riders across the region, but also a lot more peds at the Wharf. Yesterday evening the combo of good weather and some end of week event made the PBL very unpleasant to ride in....
  12. Non DOD Fed ID enough to ride across Fort Belvoir?

    I will likely have a few hours for a ride Sunday AM, I am thinking of riding down the MVT and beyond to Washington's Gristmill, then back through Kingstowne. This would mean going through Fort...

    Yesterday evening the bikeometer at 7th and Maine showed 320 riders, that was 6PM or so, so the number was still increasing. And that omits the riders who do not pass the bikeometer.

    Still not...

    The bikeometer on Maine shows around a hundred riders (and scooters?) even on bad weather days, and I think several hundred on better weather days (even though better weather days are days dealing...

    My experience on the Virginia Avenue PBL has I think all been in winter months and on weekends, so may well be biased towards times of zero or almost zero pedestrian activity.

    Speaking only about Alexandria, we have found that the addition of bike lanes on King Street as part of a road diet has both reduced the number of auto-auto collisions and increased the number of...

    Speed cameras are not legal in Virginia. You may want to help Virginia Bicycle Federation lobby the General Assembly in Richmond to change that. It would be easier if the constituency of bike...

    The weather was really nice, but in addition to the usual DC hassles, there was a trifecta of cluelessness near Shirlington Road - one from each mode.

    First was the close pass by a "cyclist". The...

    I use the route Emm mentions when going from work to a certain place of worship at the corner of Valley and Kenwood on Friday nights. It avoids the Glebe Road bridge, and the climb on Valley (in...
