    I will be doing this ride, as last year I had a lot of fun. It's a good challenge both mentally and physically, and I think it is similar in scope to the 50 States Ride in that you're doing a 60-ish...

    While we tend to disagree on the use of flexposts (I view them as a better substitute to bollards and emphasize using them at places where drivers might mistake a trail access for a driveway/road,...

    Continuing the theme of blind curves and idiots, I had a missed connection on my commute (which was otherwise wonderful) this morning.

    On the W&OD near the George Mason Drive crossing where there...

    I made some adjustments on the colors, keeping in mind that the green really does stand out. The red is a little less pronounced, too. I'm not too keen on the yellow-green and goldenrod for the...

    Sure. I have the red lines on a separate layer, so it will be easy to modify. I'll come up with something later this evening to show.

    At first glance, I find the orange and yellow lines to basically say "warning, not cycling friendly, stay away." It makes a lot of areas look less appealing for cycling, especially in areas like the...

    When I was riding through there around 5 p.m. today, I saw an Arlington police car sitting on 2nd St N facing east toward the circle. Hopefully that forced people to be a little more honest about the...

    Thank you, everyone, for the constructive criticism (and maybe abuse of artistic license, although I'm tempted to call it the Babar route ;) )! I'll get to working on an improved version with better...
